In July of 2014, my father in law went missing. He is a dementia patient and can not communicate very well. We went through a tough time, and thanks to our friends who stood by us in probably the toughest time of our life, we could find Dad. To read more click here
One group of friends that reached out were my husband’s school friends from (Naval Public School) NPS, Cochin. My husband being the ever anti-social, had lost touch with these friends, and yet they reached out to help. After Dad was found many came to see him and I heard many stories of Dad’s stay in Cochin. One thing led to another and we decided to visit Cochin.
In this way we visited Naval base, my Husband’s school and met his friends. We were even hosted by one of his friend’s Parents, Cdr & Mrs Kuruvilla. They are not only awesome hosts but are very passionate about food. They have a lovely house in the heart of city and also own a chocolate boutique “Cocoacraft”. On hearing about my passion for cooking , Cdr Kuruvilla offered me an exclusive class on chocolate making. So while my husband and daughter slept through a lazy Sunday morning, I had a crash course on chocolate making. He explained the entire process of making chocolates starting from choosing the right cocoa bean to moulding it. Do you know the difference between a Coverture and a Compound? Are you aware of the health benefits of chocolate ? It has been two years now, but still, anyone coming from Cochin has a list of Cocoacraft products to be bought for me. You can also order them online.
