The ‘C’ Word

Yes, unfortunately, I have to mention Christmas. It seems that fifty percent of a chocolatier’s year is focused on the festive season. This week we’ve begun preparing our Christmas stock and producing volumes of our products with the longest shelf life. Weekends really count at the moment, as the closer we get to Christmas, the less opportunity there is to get away from the business over the weekend. We’ll either be at a show, or packing collections, so we’re making the most of all our free time.

Today we’re heading out to look at motorhomes. It’s a notion we’ve had for a while, as we’re getting a little tired of tenting and want a few more home comforts when we go to motorsport events. We’re in no hurry, so we’re waiting for the right one to come along before we take the plunge, but our plan is to have one in time to go to Le Mans next year. So here goes!!

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
