We don’t actually need an excuse to enjoy chocolate, but if we did, National Chocolate Week would be it! This year, the annual celebration is running from the 15th to 21st October. Inspired to indulge? Here are our Top 3 experiences…
Ramble along your favourite autumn byways, with a flask of luxurious hot chocolate (and maybe a picnic too). We especially love the Pittenweem to Elie coastal path - and we do a to-go option on gourmet sandwiches, cakes and drinks too!
Treat yourself - or someone you adore - to our warming gin liqueurs or single malt whisky liqueurs. Designed and developed by us here at the Pittenweem Chocolate Company, our spirits are sourced in Scotland and our liqueurs are exclusively produced for us by an artisan, family-run chocolate maker in Belgium.
Cook a chocolate-inspired feast or visit our cafe for a chocolate-themed lunch.You may like to try a few of our favourites, handmade by the Pittenweem Chocolate Company:-
luxury hot chocolate
cacao tea infusions
chocolates paired with speciality teas
our signature chocolate cake
gluten free, handmade, chocolate brownie
waffles, crepes or ice cream with our thick, chocolate sauce
Tempted? We hope to see you soon. Meanwhile, Happy National Chocolate Week!
‘Comfort reading at its best, all wrapped up in a tartan ribbon. Sarah Morgan will make your Christmas!’
Is there a better time of year for curling up with a good book? We absolutely love autumn reading - ideally beneath a blanket, with curtains drawn, candles flickering, a luxurious hot chocolate and maybe a biscuit or two. So, we were beyond delighted when Harper Collins invited us to join their promotion of The Christmas Sisters, a brand new novel by best-selling author Sarah Morgan. The best part? It’s set in the snowy, winter heart of Scotland!
The publisher’s HQ imprint will release the book in the UK at the beginning of November and to get some of their favourite readers in the mood for this seasonal story, they’ve been sending out adorable pamper hampers. Each one includes an advance copy of The Christmas Sisters, our ‘luxurious hot chocolate with a spoon’ - handmade by the Pittenweem Chocolate Company, a candle from Isle of Skye Candle Company, refreshing infusions by Tea Pigs and a packet of crunchy, Border Biscuits.
We’re looking forward to receiving copies for our cafe’s bookshelf too - look out for our preview and giveaways. You can preorder the book at Amazon.
Also, if you’d like to treat yourself to our ‘luxurious hot chocolate with a spoon’, visit our shop - online or on the high street in Pittenweem!
Meanwhile, happy reading!
Do you sometimes want to have your cake and eat it? Well, there’s never been a better time…yes, it’s National Cake Week 2018!
So, as we say hello to the cosier months, we also invite you to throw on a few extra layers, crunch through golden, autumn leaves and saunter into our little cafe for a spell of cake-loving celebration.
