Meet the lovely faces behind the chocolate making process, our very own Chocolate Boys. Both Alastair and James joined our main company Quirky Gift Library in 2016 and were literally thrown in at the deep end making thousands of chocolate brussels sprouts to cope with our best ever Christmas. Alastair was still studying when he first joined us, and has recently completed a Professional Patisserie and Confectionery qualification where he was named Student of the Year 2017!
Over the last year, we've watched as these guys have slowly turned into chocolate experts. It's not happened overnight as there's more to tempering than meets the eye, but slowly but surely bloomed chocolate has become a thing of the past. They have experimented with different methods and have worked out the best systems to achieve beautifully tempered glossy chocolate every time. Now the real fun can begin as they turn their attention to inventing new flavour combinations.
