Burch & Purchese had a stall at 'Wicked Sunday' on the 15th March 2009 as part of the food and wine festival. A celebration of all things chocolate was held in the Atrium at Federation Square. The Cocoa Alliance, Chocovic, Sisko and Ganache were all represented among others on a fantastic day in which the cocoa bean was the star. Burch and Purchese produced their signature artisanal products including chocolate piggy banks, chocolate chooks and a range of spreads and tuiles. A fun but exhausting day was punctuated with live demonstrations on stage at the BMW edge from some of the leading pastry chefs in Melbourne. Ramon Morato was a guest presenter and his chocolate hamburger went down a storm. Ian Burch and Darren Purchese were also on show and provided the enthusiastic audience with secrets into some of their creations. In all Burch & Purchese had great feedback from the public and Ramon seemed to enjoy himself as well. Above are photos of some of Ian & Darren's creations! Looking forward to next year.
