My chocolate journey started in autumn of 2000, when I was looking for a Christmas presents for my friends and family. I found a recipe for simple chocolate truffles, made a batch and gave them as gifts boxed in pretty boxes. They were a great success and since then I've been making chocolate truffles every festive season!
Cocoa & Heart was officially born in 2011, when I left my long (and stressful ) career as a Managing Director and decided to pursue a lifelong passion for chocolate making, traditional sweets and baking. The black suits, high heel shoes and posh bags stayed firmly locked in the attic and a few years later Cocoa & Heart is becoming established as a small independent chocolate business.
I love working with different types of chocolate, tasting it and deciding how best to use it. I'm a bit of a perfectionist and I never let my chocolate creations to leave my workshop until I'm perfectly happy with them. When I'm not working in my chocolate kitchen, I'm always dreaming about the next chocolate flavour!
All our chocolate is handmade in small batches, using the best quality chocolate and packed in pretty boxes.
I also love to share my passion for chocolate with other people and that is why I run chocolate parties and courses alongside my chocolate making. So, whether it's a chocolate treat you are after or to learn how to make your own chocolate I hope you enjoy your Cocoa & Heart experience!
