Chocolate and Vines

I’m just back from a weekend of shows. For several years I’ve been unable to attend the Denbies and Oxted Chocolate fairs, but this year I had availability and got in early enough to book a spot at both of them.

On Saturday we were at Oxted Village Hall and on Sunday we were at Denbies Vineyard. We had a reasonable week of sales, and I had an overnight stay at my sister’s in Reigate. Bonus!

I’ve been upping the running distance slowly but surely. Up and down the cycle path to the university. Yes, it’s a little dull, but it’s pretty flat and wide and I know I’m a maximum of 900 metres from home if the injury flares up again. I’ve managed a complete 5k in just over 30 minutes, so things are beginning to improve. Hurrah!

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
