Windswept and Interesting

Yesterday was the annual Wivenhoe Regatta and always an event I love to do – partly because I get a pitch right on the water and can keep an eye on the action.

This year’s event was slightly challenging in that we had high winds right from the start, so I was wrestling to tie a gazebo down before it blew out to sea first thing in the morning and when the wind was still gusting at 6pm it was even more of a challenge to take it down again!

In the meantime, the Christmas collection is coming together nicely, as is the Mocktails range, and we appear to be doing better with the Pimm’s truffle this time around, so all is good in the world of chocolate.

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
