A new season!

Filed in Blog by on 2nd October 2009 0 Comments • views: 831

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 atHanover 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 thenwill beputting 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

Let’s talk about it!

Before I used to make Chocolate I wouldn’t dream of talking about Christmas until the beginning of December. Mince pies were a treat to look forward to and I would stock up on these on the 1st of December and eat my last mince pie on Boxing Day.

Now, we start getting asked in October when our Christmas Range will be released. What can I say?!

We attend events in November and really it is a sign of the times that people are so busy in December that they have to be organised earlier and earlier every year.

As the festive season comes upon us, we do hope that you will get a chance to relax and have some fun too! Our last lot of chocolate making workshops for 2015 are running on Sunday 15th November – come and be inspired to make your own gifts. Or chill out with one of Alright Petal’s fabulous Wreath Making workshops.

We kick start our Christmas with our annual mulled wine and mince pie evening – including our lovely friends: Alright Petal, The Beady Gecko, Carla Pownall Pottery and Kims Krafts. (11th November 7pm to 9pm)

We are then delighted to be part of the Fabulous Frost Fair at Claremont Farm on 20th to 22nd November. They have their amazing VIP Launch night on 20th November in the evening, a day of Demos on the Saturday and then a family day on the Sunday. Sounds lovely and in such a beautiful setting too!

Following on from that we will be at the Wallasey Village Christmas Night on 26th November.

… 4 days after that I’ll have my first mince pie 😉

 

Hope you have a great build up to the festive season,

Baltic Market views: 296

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 […]
