Seed and Bean – an organic kaleidoscope of pleasure

There is a new chocolate range in town! It’s Seed and Bean. I tried my pick on the Mandarin and Ginger. This is one of the many vegan chocolates in the range. The mandarin and Ginger has 72% cocoa.

Barbuto – fresh organic vegetables and fruit delivered from Sicily

The other day, I met up with Jean Paul Mifsud, former TV personality and owner of Barbuto.
