On The Road Again

We’re now into show season, so for the next few months we’ll be out on the road. This weekend we’re at RHS Hyde Hall with the Essex Craft and Design Show, and it’s been a busy one!

The show is a 4-day event, so that’s taken a fair bit of planning to ensure we’ve got enough stock to cover the four days. Although Friday was fairly quiet, Saturday and Sunday have been pretty busy and we’ve still got tomorrow to go!

I recently invested in a Choctails jacket and it’s come in very handy this weekend, as, although the weather’s been beautifully sunny it’s been very cold. We’ve borne the brunt of the cold north wind in our marquee and as you can imagine, standing still all day means we don’t generate enough body heat! We’ve been piling on the layers to try and keep ourselves warm all weekend.

We’ve got next weekend off and then in 2 weeks time we’ll be at the first Northampton Food Festival. Hopefully we’ll see some of you there!

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
