At Cocoa Boutique we don't manufacture chocolates ~ We leave that to the professionals! Master and Artisan Chocolatiers freshly make each and every creation for you. On this board you can get to know all of our super talented chocolatiers.

We knew Pierre Ledent's international Chocolate reputation before we tasted his divine creations but no one could have prepared us for the heavenly hit we were to experience. With 2 International Gold Medals, 7 European Confectioner Awards and 2 consecutive Belgian National Arts Awards, there’s no denying Pierre’s #Chocolates are brilliant.

Barry Colenso personally tastes every #chocolate to ensure it deserves to be in a @Cocoa Boutique tasting selection. And trust us, he is very fussy indeed! His particular attention to detail hails from his days as the youngest Head of Patisserie at the Savoy Hotel, London. It was during his time here he created Chocolate delights for Royalty including the Queen and the Queen's Mother.

Damian Allsop began his #Chocolate life as a pastry chef. But not just any pastry chef – one of the most talented and loved pastry chef’s in the Michelin starred world. Having worked in some of the finest Michelin starred restaurants like The Aubergine with Gordon Ramsay and Locanda Locatelli with Giorgio we had high expectations, and he did not disappoint.

Maurice Farine is somewhat of a maverick Chocolatier having learnt his craft from his father-in-law, René Guillet, who actively encouraged him to explore his flavour boundaries to see how far he could push the average confection.

Dave Gulobows is a self taught, award winning Chocolatier whose so genuinely happy you can’t help but smile for hours after ever conversation. Each and every creation is hand made using traditional artisanal methods he learnt from reading old confectionery books he picked up in a Nottingham library!

Meet Louis Barnett, one of the youngest and most captivating individuals we've ever met at CB HQ. At just 21 years old, Louis Barnett is already a #Chocolate force to be reckoned with. In fact, he’s probably one of the most sought after Chocolatiers in the entire country.
