Half Term Capers

We’ve just returned from a relaxing week in Cape Verde, on the island of Sol and are fully charged and ready to go.

We did a little sightseeing, although there isn’t a huge amount to see on the rocky, volcanic island, but we got to float in the salt lake which sits inside a  volcano.

February is a very windy time of year in Cape Verde, and testament to that was the World Kite Surfing Championships going on whilst we were there. It was, however, lovely and warm, and we were well looked after at the resort.

So now it’s back to work and our next focus is Easter and our Spring Selection we’ve been working on over the last few months.

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
