We've Won A Gold Award!!!!

As a member of The Guild of Fine Food (a UK trade association for quality food and drink), for the last 2 years Devnaa has taken part in their coveted Great Taste Awards competition.

Food and Drink Producers from across the country enter their products to be judged by industry experts and food critics in the hope of being given a Great Taste accolade. With over 350 judges blind tasting over 6000 products entered into over 250 categories competition is tough and the Devnaa team is extremely happy to announce the acquisition of their 2nd Gold Award!!!

Awarded to our Chai Masala Truffle this is the second single gold star we've won (last year we were awarded one for our chai masala ice cream) and we are absolutely delighted!!! Its amazing to be given such credit from experts such as chefs, buyers, retailers and critics and also to be given an award when being compared with so many other brilliant chocolate brands. Thank you to the Guild and all of the Judges!! Fingers crossed that next year we'll get a double or maybe even a triple gold star!!!!!
To celebrate our award we've launched a limited edition chai and coconut truffles chocolate box, check it out!!! :)

Go DJ!!!

The last few weeks here at Devnaa have been manic!! With so many weddings, parties and events to cater for I haven't been able to keep up with my blogging every day so firstly - apologies for my absences!!! Amongst a week full of hundreds of pieces of personalised barfi, wedding cupcakes and a few bespoke cakes for summer events the Devnaa team also celebrated a special birthday right here in our very own kitchen! Our younger cousin Krishan who is a DJ when he's not helping us out by taste testing recipes turned 23 last Thursday and here's the cake we made to celebrate...
