Chocolate Camera

chocolate food art how to cook that

There’s a sweet, sticky tug-of-war that occurs every week in my kitchen as I film my latest crazy creation – the wrestle between making beautiful food and also getting the perfect shot for video. I still shoot and edit all my videos personally, which is probably why I have chocolate ingrained into the focus bezel and record button of my camera. Today’s video is inspired by what my DLS may one day look like – a camera made entirely out of chocolate.


To make this chocolate camera you will need:

900g (31.75 ounces) Chocolate (how to temper)
1/3 cup mixed dried fruit and nuts
circle cutters

I have been busy over the last year planning, writing and overseeing the photography and layout for my first ever cookbook! There are heaps of my favourite dessert recipes in there with a chapter on pastries, ice-cream, yummy cakes, artistic desserts and of course chocolate desserts. Each chapter has its own intro explaining the food science that you'll need to know for success every time. Booksellers where you can purchase your very own copy:

All recipe quantities in the book are in grams, ounces and cups.
