Durham students work with world class chocolatier

On Wednesday 16th April, we visited New College Durham with award-winning chocolatier and pastry chef, Mark Tilling. Our account manager, Hayley from HB Ingredients, arranged the visit with Leah Walker from the college to engage the students in the art of creating fine desserts from chocolate.

Mark is a world class chocolatier who has appeared on Channel 4’s Creme da la Creme and most recently Extreme Chocolate Makers. He demonstrated a few tricks of the trade and then the students had a practice; the results were amazing!

Our sales managers, Stewart Jack, Maxine Whitfield and Keith Boffey went along with some of our customers; Stuart and Eddie from Old Vicarage, Corrine and Paul from Woodhill Hall, Shirley from Daniel’s Farm, Billy from Muffin Break to name just a few.

This wasn’t the first visit as a workshop was also held in April. Both visits were a huge success.

Here are just some of the photos from the workshops.
