We are delighted to announce that we have won a bursary award to exhibit at one of the biggest food and drink shows in the country, and our biggest event to date! We will be at the BBC Good Food Show Winter in Birmingham from 26-29th November.
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.
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.
Another weekend and TWO new places for us!
Our first trip will be to this year’s Tatton Park Foodies Festival. This takes places over three days (Friday 17th-Sunday 19th) and is a huge festival with all the usual suspects, including great local produce, celebrity chefs and tons to see and do. Set in beautiful Tatton Park, this promises to be the biggest festival we have attended so far, and hopefully the best one yet! Continue reading Izzy, Wizzy, Let’s get busy!
A week on from the Harrogate Cake & Bake Show, we’re rested and ready to go, gearing up for another three day festival next weekend. This time we’re in Liverpool for the North West Food Lovers Festival (3rd-5th July, 11-6)
This poor blog has been very unloved over the past few weeks, so here’s a bumper picture post showing what we’ve been up to & where we’ve been.
Hope everyone has had a happy (hoppy?) Easter, and that the bunny brought lots of delicious chocolates! The last thing we heard from him, he was lying on a nice sunny beach, drinking something out of a pineapple with a bright umbrella sticking out of it.
Before the bunny jetted off on his vacation, he joined us for the first Frodsham independent market. It was also our first time visiting Frodsham in ages, so it was great to have a look around after the market and grab a coffee at the new Whitmore & White Food Hall.
Sadly this marks the end of Easter, and the removal of our Easter eggs and other products from our online boutique. We have a lot of big things planned to replace them in the near future, so keep your eyes peeled for updates!
Thank you to everyone who visited us at West Kirby Farmers’ Market last Saturday, it was great to see the market so busy! There were lots of Easter gifts being purchased – hope everyone enjoys them next weekend.
With the Sun finally making an appearance, we welcomed two new summery additions to our marshmallow range – mango & passion fruit, and mandarin & Cointreau. As always our mallows are made with only natural ingredients, and the colour comes from real fruit juices and purees. It was funny to watch what started out as a bright orange mandarin mixture whip up to an almost pure white mallow. Just to confuse you (and us!).
We were out braving the cold in Altrincham Market last weekend, but kept warm by good coffee and good company from the other traders.
We’re very happy to report that we are moving back indoors this weekend, and are in equally lovely company at West Kirby Farmers’ Market. If you’ve been keeping track of our ever growing Easter collection, we will have the entire range on offer at West Kirby, alongside our usual confectionery. We also have some new marshmallow flavours for you to try, and our very popular milk chocolate dipped honeycomb is back, alongside our latest creation – “Hot Cross Buns”.
So if you’re looking for handmade eggs, or something a bit different for Easter this year, make sure you catch us from 9am-1pm on Saturday 28th in St Andrew’s Church Hall, Graham Road, West Kirby CH48 5DE. You can also pre-order all of our Easter products for collection from the market, get in touch if you would like to place an order.
