A new season!

I love October – It still remains such an obvious change of season – the air starts to feel cooler and fresher. The leaves are turning golden brown / orange. When I used to live in London, I could sniff out  the chestnut carts as I walked through Oxford Street. As I take my little one to school the bigger boys are all starting to collect conkers. For us chocolatiers, this is the final stretch before we get into the full swing of the chocolate season. I am very excited as this will be our first Christmas at Hanover Street. It will also be my little boys first Christmas as a school boy and he is so excited already!

Already there is a buzz as people are coming in and placing orders and asking to see our Christmas Collection ….. alas! our christmas chocolates aren’t out yet – we like to make everything as fresh as we can! So we are currently focusing on Chocolate Week next week and then will be putting together trick or treat cauldrons  for Halloween.

For the first time this year we are officially participating in “Chocolate Week”. We have events every day in the shop – the website www.thechocolatecellar.co.uk has full details, but highlights are a chocolate tasting with all of our unusual chocolates on Thurs 15th and Fri 16th – mango and chilli, Lavender, whiskey and gunpowder, lemon and cumin to name but a few!  There will be a tea party in aid of the Sick Children’s Trust on the Sunday – do please come and support this if you can.  Free lunchtime demo’s on the Tuesday and Wednesday, so there should be something for all somewhere along the line!

Happy Chocolate Week and see you soon, I hope – Bala x

Baltic Market views: 175

We were really excited to be part of the farmers market at the Baltic Market yesterday. We registered our interest as soon as we heard that a market was going to be running there – just by the old Cains Brewery. For years we have thought that Liverpool was crying out for a local market […]

We’re really excited to be collaborating with Chester Beer and Wine – a fabulous local Beer and Wine shop. If you haven’t visited them yet do pop in and have a look at their amazing selection of wines! (And beer… but we’re not really beer drinkers at The Chocolate Cellar!) We will be with them […]

Spring Break! views: 186

So – our pledge of writing a regular blog sort of faded into the background as we crazily made chocolate for Mothers’ Day and Easter. We hope you managed to follow us on Instagram as we absolutely loved taking part inĀ  the #MarchMeetTheMaker Challenge – this was set by Joanne Hawker and many of our […]
