Along with the garden and farmland bird eggs these are part of the Chocolate Detective’s Curated Collection – her very favourite products from a lifetime of tasting chocolate. These eggs are the same as the salted caramel in the cuckoo which were selected as a Best Buy and given 5 stars in Jeremy Lee’s (Quo Vadis) taste test for the Observer last Easter.
The Chocolate Detective writes,
Brightly billed purring puffins are my favourite seabird with their cute, clown-like appearance. They pair up for life and raise just one precious Puffling a year. One of my secret haunts, Lundy Island in the Bristol Channel, takes its name from the Old Norse word for Puffin, and is an important breeding ground for these beautiful rare creatures.
Artwork is by Madeleine Floyd who has two lovely books of bird illustrations, ‘Birdsong’ and ‘Chickens, Ducks and Geese.’
