Together with a small team of young pastry chefs William and Suzue make an outstanding range of contemporary chocolates patisserie cakes biscuits and ice cream. They are innovative with flavours total perfectionists when it comes to their art and have a real respect for their craft.
In their chocolate collection you will find innovative creations such as Rosemary and Olive Oil Japanese Black Vinegar and Apricot and Wasabi.

The influences for their flavours are drawn from a variety of global experiences. Williams years of working in French Michelin-starred restaurants account for his unmistakably French-styled Patisserie; for instance his popular Mont Blanc and Breton Sables. Suzue on the other hand inspires a unique Japanese aesthetic – their Yuzu filled chocolates and Miso and Walnut biscuits are a fine example of this.
More traditionally you can buy a fine English Bakewell Tart as well as some distinctly Malt Whiskey truffles or Scottish Heather honey chocolates. William and Suzue have skilfully combined classic good taste in what they do together with an intriguing sense of adventure.
