Manchester Chocolate Workshop Voucher First Prize in "Co-operative Bake-Off"

I was contacted by Co-operative Foods who were running a "Co-operative Bake-Off" to coincide with the Great British Bake Off final shown on BBC1 at the beginning of October. The event was to raise funds for the Community Youth Fund, part of a local charity Forever Manchester that supports disadvantaged young people throughout the city. The event had many entrants from across the Co-Op organisation and I was asked whether I would be willing to contribute a prize.

It's great to support Forever Manchester

Chocolate Collective
Workshops & Hen Parties expand into Leeds

The Workshops & Hen Parties are expanding along the M62 into Leeds as of January 2015.

Leeds, being one of the great Cities in the North, offers a diverse range of attractions including ballet, opera, markets, concerts, fabulous shopping and all in such a cosmopolitan atmosphere. With easy travel links including both rail and motorway networks from the North and South it was an easy location to choose to expand our fabulous chocolate workshops.

Leeds - great city for a Chocolate Hen Party

I can see why so many Hen Parties travel to Leeds for their special weekend. So why, not enjoy the Express Hen Party or Deluxe Chocolate Workshops starting from January 2015.

Bookings being taken now, visit Leeds Hen Party and Chocolate Workshops for more details.

Chocolate in Schools, it's on the curriculum!

Yes! Chocolate is being studied in many schools as it covers different subject matters including history, geography and science. It can be incorporated into business studies and product design too. I've been invited into schools into Manchester, Stockport and Cheshire to be involved in their chocolate making experience following their recent studies of the subject.
