Portfolio piece: Confessions of a Chocoholic

This piece was an absolute joy to write – and what a compliment for Red Funnel to name me the local Queen of Chocolate!

There are so many articles and blog posts online and in the media about food and drink on the Isle of Wight. I decided to delve a little deeper into a particular favourite and make some personal recommendations.

I wanted to inspire visitors to explore some of the Isle of Wight’s independent chocolate shops and cafes. I’d do this by highlighting the vast range of chocolate products available, from hand-crafted truffles to chocolate fudge and ice-cream.

The country was in and out of lockdown at the time, so I included relevant opening hours and specific Covid-19 information. I also completed the article with a couple of ‘try-it-yourself’ Isle of Wight chocolate recipe ideas that would appeal to anyone under strict travel restrictions.
