Chocolate Indulgence Package with Chocolate Hamper at York Cocoa Works Review: September 2020

York Cocoa Works has always been a home away from home for us.  A lovely local independent chocolatier with high quality products where they literally go from bean to bite, as their yummy treats are produced on site at their chocolate manufactory.

Owner Sophie and her team have created a cosy and snug environment perfect for family, friends and couples to enjoy a chocolate indulgence making your day much sweeter.

As always, the whole team make you feel welcome and part of the Cocoa works family from the moment you step in the door which is a reason many York residents and visitors to York keep returning.

The York Cocoa Works Chocolate Indulgence package includes a platter of super scrummy chocolate truffles, cakes and a hand-crafted bar of chocolate.

You also receive a hot drink of choice and I would highly recommend having their signature hot chocolate.

Sophies beautifully bespoke handcrafted chocolate packages allow the team to adapt for allergies such as dairy free, wheat free, vegetarian and vegan, so perfect for everyone.

COOK Frozen Prepared Meals Delivered Direct to your Door Review: August 2020

In 1997 Ed started COOK as a frozen meal business in a small Farnham shop.  Luckily Dale, one of Eds clients, just happened to be a chef, so Ed persuaded him to quit his job and they joined forces.

Employees voted COOK one of the top 100 Sunday Times best companies to work for and they have been on the list ever since. COOK have been certified by the living wage foundation since July 2015.

After 20 Years Dale retired in 2017 and Ed now heads the business alongside his sister Rosie as co-CEOs together with their team are still as committed as ever to bring you the absolute best home cooked meals, so you can go from freezer to plate in no time.

No need to queue up at the supermarket, as with COOK you are still able to eat healthy and save time.  Dietary needs are also catered for as they offer a range of Gluten Free, Vegetarian, Vegan and No Dairy options

Pots for One, the sticky veg satay and sweet potato & aubergine Sri Lankan curry are super yummy and perfect if you fancy a light lunch or supper.
