Choco­late Ar­chae­ol­ogy

The Scots Magazine - - Focus On… Orkney -

From its base in Kirk­wall, this com­pany pro­duces choco­lates that cel­e­brate three chap­ters of Orkney’s rich his­tory, Pic­tish, Viking and Ne­olithic. The choco­lates are based on the de­signs of some of the arte­facts from these eras that have been found on the is­lands. In a way, you’re tak­ing a piece of Orkney’s his­tory away with you – and a very de­li­cious one at that. The com­pany is a fam­ily busi­ness run by Christo­pher and Rag­gie. Christo­pher, an ar­chae­ol­o­gist, recre­ates repli­cas of art­work in stone which are then used by Rag­gie as a mould for her choco­lates. Each box sold con­tains in­for­ma­tion on what they were mod­elled on.
