January this year was more of a shock to me than usual – just the cold weather after such a warm summer and autumn, slightly drab days after the brightly lit stores and magical fairy lights of Christmas. That “Back to School” feeling – really left me hankering for duvet days more than ever before.
Trying to shake it off I took a wander along Bold Street. Many years ago when I first moved to Liverpool a friend mentioned Bold St to me, but I never really explored it then. It is one of those places which you want to drift along and in my commodity trading days I never really drifted but strode with a purpose and tended to bypass everyday magic. More and more over the past few years I have found Bold street start to become a little Bohemian Haven . The little businesses there are a real credit to the city with their very individual styles and approaches.
I find it truly uplifting when I wander along here listening and just soaking in the atmosphere.
So – I did this in my little daze a few weeks ago and came away truly inspired.
A result of the daze is our Bold Street Collection – a collection of truffles inspired by those wonderful eateries …. we hope you enjoy reading about it on this link (you can also order it here)

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 […]
