South Manchester and Chester Food Assembly

We’re happy to announce that we’ve finally joined two local Food Assemblies, one based in South Manchester (Stretford) and the other in Chester (Hoole).

The Food Assembly

The Food Assembly is a new way of running a farmers market style event, but where all your shopping is done online and in advance. You then simply collect your order from the designated collection point, where you can meet the producer, chat, and enjoy all the benefits and interaction of a regular market.

We had lots of beautiful marshmallows, chocolate bars, and handmade chocolates with us, alongside boxes of dark chocolate dipped candied fruit.

We have therefore been invited to the monthly Food Fest, held in the small hall of Chester University from 11am-2.30pm, and will be there this coming Friday (24th April), followed by our usual West Kirby Farmers’ Market on Saturday 25th April.

A Spot of Polo

Spent a couple of days this week at Chester racecourse joining the Taste Cheshire Retail Village at the Audi International & Roodee Challenge Cup Tournament (polo).

Chester Racecourse stall - 05/09/14We arrived bright and early with a full stock of 8 different marshmallow flavours (including the new Cassis and Violet), along with butter caramels, nougat, pate de fruit, macarons, and all sorts of chocolates. With the sunshine overtaking the rain, everyone really seemed to enjoy the day. I think the main highlight for us was being so close to so many beautiful horses. Continue reading A Spot of Polo

Chester Food, Drink & Lifestyle Festival and Cheshire Life

We had a great time at the Chester Food, Drink & Lifestyle Festival, and even managed to get ourselves photographed by the people at Cheshire Life magazine. See the photograph of Natalie showing our chocolates to customers at the Chester Food, Drink & Lifestyle Festival in the May issue of Cheshire Life.
