I am an artisan chocolatier based in Southport, I make a range of chocolates using premium belgian chocolate, including boxes of hand dipped chocolates decorated with edible patterns to give a unique look

I have been making chocolates for many years, making chocolate brandy truffles was part of our family tradition at Xmas I even made them as wedding favours when my elder son got married 

In 2007 I completed a 2 day course in chocolate making in Manchester, following this course friends and family received handmade chocolates for gifts at Xmas, Birthdays, and every other celebration for which a gift could be given! During this time I developed my skills as a chocolatier

In 2009 after completing further courses in advanced chocolate making, chocolate wedding favours and celebration cakes I started selling my chocolates to the public, initially at farmers markets, and now at craft fairs, fund raising events, agricultural shows and food festivals  

 

 In September 2010 I was asked to give my first talk and demonstration about chocolate making to a local ladies group, following its success I have given talks and demonstrations to various groups from 10-100 people, I have been an after lunch speaker at a charity fund raising event, held 1to1 chocolate making workshops and chocolate tasting events (in Lancashire and Merseyside)

If you are interested in a children's party, a chocolate workshop,a chocolate tasting party,a talk/demonstration please contact me, I am now on the official speakers list for the WI. in Lancashire

In December 2011 Lancashire Life published a 2 page feature about me and my chocolates
