BBC Good Food Show Winter in Birmingham

Phew, the BBC Good Food Show Winter 2015 has come and gone, and we survived a hoard of some 80,000 visitors over four days! This was by far the biggest show we’ve ever exhibited at, and a heck of an experience (if not an absolutely exhausting one).

Now available in a local shop for local people

We’ve been busy bees over the past few months developing (and taste-testing our way through) all sorts of new products and flavours.

So here’s our guest blog for Whitmore & White​, introducing our new range of chocolate stocked in their Heswall and Frodsham stores.

P.S. If you are unfortunate enough to live too far away, you can catch us armed with most of these items at events and they will soon be available on our online boutique.

We’re all going on a summer holi….. nope back to work!

Our festival season came to an end (at least the ones we had booked for the Summer have all been and gone), and we could really use a holiday…. which is why we went straight into a week of product testing, markets, client visits and tastings. The world of chocolate never rests!

First up a little experimentation with new chocolate decorations. I was quite pleased with this red speckled pattern, although my dear colleague thought it looked like someone had been stabbed. A quick coating of bronze made them look a little less what we had dubbed “crime scene chic”, and a lot more appropriate for their maple caramel and pecan praline filling.

Food Festivals & Farmers’ Markets

First off, we were at the Tatton Park Foodies Festival from Friday to Sunday. There was a great atmosphere from the start, with visitors starting to queue long before the event opened each day. We were actually greeted each morning by herds of beautiful fallow deer and sheep, grazing in the sunshine. Continue reading Food Festivals & Farmers’ Markets
