THE HUNGRY DOG ARTISAN CHOCOLATES
In early 2014 John launched his exclusive artisan chocolate shop, www.thehungrydog.co.uk. Each chocolate is handmade by John from the very first molding, to the final finishing touch.
This is a chocolate shop like no other. Every week just 20 boxes of 8 assorted chocolates are made. No more and no less. When the chocolates are ready the shop opens. Once the 20 boxes are gone, the hunt begins again a week later.
On a small farm in north west England, a shepherd tended to his sheep. In the drizzle and wind he lifted his whistle to his mouth and sharply blew a command to his dog. His grandson stood by his side and watched in awe of how a dog could perform such a beautiful routine under the influence of such a kind, calm man.
Although a man of few words, the shepherd was incredibly wise. When that same little boy who had stood by his grandfather's side grew to be a man, he struggled with an indecisiveness and uncertainty. He was unsure of the pathway to take in life, but knew it was time to make a decision once and for all. On hearing his grandson's struggles, the shepherd simply said 'my lad, the hungry dog hunts best'.
The meaning of the phrase perplexed the grandson for a while. But when he found his true passion it suddenly became clear. The hungry dog hunts best: it is desire, passion and longing which drive a beast. To want and need something is the impetus to achieve.
Like the hungry dog, when a human being is fuelled with lust and desire, it seeks out the very best. When something is craved so longingly no hurdle, large or small, can prevent fulfilment. The Hungry Dog Artisan Chocolates are definitely worth the hunt.
