Back To School

Well, University actually …

Over the weekend we exhibited at the Norwich Chocolate Festival. I did my degree at UEA, so it was a wonderful opportunity to see some of my old haunts again, and see how things have changed as well – for a start, there aren’t 365 pubs any more (I have an anecdote or amusing story from every one…)

The festival began with a gala evening, and I met Robert Austin, semifinalist of Masterchef 2014 (I seem to be collecting MasterChef contestants at the moment….). I couldn’t remember his name at the time – I only remembered him as the Lindy Hop dance champion!

The event itself was really well organised and well attended, so we had a good weekend. Of course, that means we’ve got more restocking to do this week, ready for our next few events!!

Hilary Delamare

Choctails® was founded by husband and wife team Simon and Hilary Delamare. Simon's suggestion of putting cocktail flavours into chocolate took Hilary's chocolate-making hobby to new heights, until in May 2012, the decision was made to turn the hobby into a full time business. The domestic kitchen became a production factory by day, and the dining room was given up to become a place where hand-made chocolate is crafted
