To you … to me …

A while ago …. okay, over a year ago … I was given a marble slab by Simon’s uncle. At a metre squared, we needed to find the right spot for it, and a suitable table to put it on and make sure the height was right and all of those things, before we installed it. Because once it was in its place, it wasn’t going to be easily moved.

Finally, this week, we got it set up. Simon and I managed to carry it between us. After the first ‘to you … to me’ we abandoned any more of that malarky as we were both under a bit of strain, but we did it and it is a thing of beauty.

It was my first attempt at tempering on marble, and it was an absolute joy. The results came out perfectly every time. I’m a very happy chocolatier!

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
