Hairy Bikers Route 66 Adventure
In Spring 2019 we were filmed by the BBC for their beloved "Hairy Bikers" series. Si King and Dave Meyers spent the day with us making chocolate, from roasting to winnowing, to grinding, tempering and tasting. The bars they created from Brazilian chocolate then went into a chocolate chili pie they made. Route 66 has been shown in the UK but not shown yet in the US. It will eventually make it to Netflix.
