WORKSHOPS

 

The Chocolate Cellar offers a range of workshops. The workshops are taught by Award Winning Chocolatier, Bala Croman.

Bala’s passion for chocolate is totally infectious and all who have attended have come away inspired and enthralled by the art of chocolate making.

Sessions are run at The Chocolate Cellar in Liverpool City Centre and at Claremont Kitchens on the Wirral.

Workshops can be arranged for groups on mutually agreeable dates or for individuals on pre-arranged dates.

 

Our workshops are popular for corporate events, birthday parties, hen /stag parties and special individual treats.

 

All items created during the workshop are packaged and taken home by participants.

Events!!

I love all the events that are coming up.

The Wirral Food and Drink Festival is a particular favourite of mine as it is near home, the setting is amazing, particularly in the courtyard and the team running it are all absolutely fabulous. The atmosphere is wonderful … for the past 3 years they’ve even managed to get the weather right! (Well almost!) If there is only one event you go to all year, make it this one! We will be launching our Chocolate Tasting Club here!

Last year was the first “opening event” for Liverpool Food and Drink Festival … very different in style to the Wirral, but equally fantastic. The organisation was fabulous and I felt very safe taking along my two little ones. The Festival opens with an event at Sefton Park and then restaurants (and chocolateries)  hold special events through the week – we have a cheese, chocolate and wine tasting on the Monday and a chocolate tasting on the Tuesday. The week closes with Feast on Hope Street!

For me these events are an eye opener as I see all the amazing foods that are available to us!  I always come away with bag fulls of food and brilliant ideas … it is so different buying food from a producer! Their passion for their food is always so intense and they can tell you so much about their food that you would probably never know if you only stuck to supermarkets.

Can you tell I’m getting excited?! Anyway I hope this year will be fabulous again and look forward to seeing both old and new visitors. Enjoy!

Looking ahead to 2017

So we are finally out of the chasm of Christmas and New Year – I believe it really is “back to school” for us all now!

2016 was a magical and crazy year for us – we made many new friends both personal and business.

Here are some of the highlights:

  • We took on the lovely Ella as part of the team.
  • We ran our first family workshops at Claremont Farm and also started our workshops at REX Liverpool.
  • We were delighted to be asked to run the Albert Dock Easter Sessions.
  • We ran lots of Hen Parties at the lovely Siren Cafe.
  • We were filmed by the lovely Rachel Rhodes for The Guide Liverpool.
  • We took part in the Queen’s 90th Celebrations in Wallasey Village.
  • We schemed and plotted with Squidges to bring you Creepy Creations at Claremont and were aided and abetted in this by Readnowwritenow and AlrightPetal.
  • We enjoyed the Summer Arts Market with Open Culture and were blown away by the amazing Winter Arts Market at the Anglican Cathedral!
  • We were named as one of the Small Business 100 and were so very honoured to be amongst the other amazing businesses that were chosen.
  • We went to Downing Street and made it on time!!

Phew! What a fab year that was for us and we were so truly thankful for all the support from all of our friends and family along the way.

We have had a break now and had some lovely family and friends time and Christmas and New Year Celebrations do indeed seem a dim and distant memory.

So here we are on the brink of 2017 and hoping that it will be as blessed. We are already hatching plans for Valentines Day and Easter (Not quite making anything for those yet!!)

We have been taking school workshop bookings as well as hen parties and are now in the process of sorting out further workshops for the gifted Workshop Vouchers out there.

Do watch this space for more news – hope this year is good to you too :)

 

Spring Break!

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 in  the #MarchMeetTheMaker Challenge – this was set by Joanne Hawker and many of our Mersey Etsy Team members participated in this.

We hope it gave you an insight how tiny little micro businesses like ours work. We certainly enjoyed seeing pictures of our creative friends and their creativity.

We also had lots of fun in the local press and media chatting about all things chocolatey in the run up to Easter.

We have lots to chat about and our next blog will be all about reviews.

In the meantime – our next workshop is on 25th June at Claremont Farm –  just 3 places left on this one so please call us if you would like to book.

May weekends are fully booked with Hen parties but we do have availabilty in June and July for hen parties and school workshops – please get in touch to book.

Baltic Market views: 49

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 […]

Chocolate and Wine Tasting views: 162

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 […]

Do we really need these reminders? views: 265

This week has seen us being inundated with love and kindness. It has been Galentine’s Day, Valentines Day and Random Acts of kindness Day – all between Monday and Friday. What a week!! It is sad that we have to have days to remember to have fun with our female friends, to say “I love […]

It’s this Saturday…. views: 345

Quite often, as small independent businesses, it is easy to get lost in the day to day running of the business. There are always deadlines to be met, phonecalls to be made, leads to be followed up.   The big picture can often get lost in the big buzz of business. This is why we […]
