With a name like chocky wocky at first glance this event sounds a little mad. But when you find out it's held at York Gardens Library in Battersea (not far from Clapham Junction) and see the book angle coming in you'll see its far more indulgent than wacky.
The Chocky Wocky Book Bash Chocolate Festival is a part of the SW11 Literary Festival taking place this month. The reason this event was brought to our attention (beyond the sweet tooth and bookish themes) is that Micah Carr-Hill, the chef and co-author of the organic chocolate company Green & Black's Recipe Book, will be whipping up some tantalising choccy creation during a live cooking show.
Also featuring at the evening will be Sara Jayne Staines OBE who will give a talk on the journey of chocolate ‘from pod to palate' and Sudi Piggot who will host a quiz on ‘How To Be a Better Foodie'.
The Chocky-Wocky Book Bash Chocolate Festival is taking place this Friday 26 September at 6.30pm. This is the festival's closing party so it should be a busy one but you can still by a ticket for £10 at the Clapham Junction Waterstone's Bookshop or by calling the festival organisers on 020 8871 6181.
