Garden Parties and Pimms

After another busy week re-stocking we spent Saturday at Little Bentley Hall Garden Show. Unlike previous years, this was only a one day event, including the gala evening. Although the sun shone all day, the wind was cold and I was completely unprepared for it! I couldn’t wait to get home to a medicinal G&T!
I’ve been asked to provide the chocolates for the MSUK annual charity ball at Le Tallbooth in Dedham again this year, so I’m looking at doing something away from our standard range of chocolates and I’m revisiting the Pimm’s truffle. This has always proved difficult in the past as the Pimm’s flavour gets lost in the chocolate, so I need to try some different ideas to try and bring the flavour out. Fingers crossed for a better result this time. After all, the Long Island Iced Tea took many attempts to get right!

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
