I hope you all had a lovely, relaxing Summer! The weather seems to be cooling down a little bit so most of my chocolate items will be back on the menu. If you want to try my chocolate fudge, now is the time to order it.
As of this week I am accepting bookings for my next Cookery Course. This time the theme will be festive meals. The topics covered include Soups, Biscuits, Pates, Pasta and of course Desserts! The course starts on Monday 26th October at 5.30pm till 7.30pm. Seating is limited so be sure to book as soon as possible.
