You can now find a selection of our chocolates, patisserie and confections in the newly opened Whitmore & White Food Hall and Wine Merchants on Pensby Road in Heswall. The guys there have sourced a fantastic selection of Continue reading Sleep is for wimps (and the cat)

The Taming of the Choux

Eclairs are something we have obsessed over since visiting Paris, where the counters of the world’s finest patisseries are lined with row after row of perfectly shaped choux pastries.

Is this thing on?

Things are moving ahead slowly but surely with the development of Éponine as a real business venture. We are currently negotiating the details of a premises so we can start baking without having to beg, steal or borrow someone else’s kitchen. Sadly this won’t come with a store front, but we are working on getting ourselves into farmers markets and similar events throughout Liverpool. 

If all goes to plan, things should really be taking off in the next few weeks, so we’ve started up this blog to chronicle our misadventures and keep you guys up to date with what’s going on as we get things up and running.

Here goes nothing!
