We are very excited that on this Saturday (14th February) The Chocolate Cellar will be celebrating it’s 10th Birthday!

It has been 10 years since Bala  decided to sell chocolates at Wirral Farmers Market and took on her first stall. It has been a fabulous journey with amazing support from our wonderful customers.

As a “Thank You” to our loyal customers, we are having a “Golden Ticket” Giveaway. 100 envelopes will be given out to our customers on Saturday 14th February at Wirral Farmers Market –  10 of these will contain Golden Tickets. These tickets will allow entry to a Special Chocolate Making Workshop being held on 11th April 2015  at New Ferry Village Hall from 2pm to 4pm.

 

Good Luck – we hope to see you there!






Bold Street – Bolder and Brighter than ever?

Filed in Blog by on 25th January 2015 0 Comments • views: 1758

 

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)

Remember, remember ….

…the 5th of November!

This is one of my most favourite parts of the year as the leaves turn brown, orange, yellow with the sun sparkling on them. Cold dry air and crunchy leaves under foot. Smells of burning, scurrying little creatures building hideouts, lovely clear days wrapped up snuggly warm. 

Then comes Halloween with beautiful bright bold orange, green and purple in dominance – children get excited at the thought of dressing up – will it be skeletons or witches? Will it be gruesome or a sweet little witches cat? Broomsticks abound! Trick or treating, carved pumpkins and candles everywhere. Buckets full of sweets the children come home with their delights …. a few days rest and then the absolutely magical and musical fire filled skies begin.

Beautiful, bright and bold colours brighten up the sky with gold, silver, electric blue, pink and green showers lightening up the darkened evening. 

And then darkness and happy, tired families having had a beautiful evening …. I so love this time of year – Can you tell?

We’ve never had an event on Bonfire Night in the evening and I am just sooooo excited to be at The PalmHouse in Sefton Park on Bonfire Night – Treacle Toffee, Salted Caramel, Cinder Toffee, Hot Chocolate – so many delightful things to make…. I really, really can’t wait!!!

… and again!
