My name is Nenette. I handmake all the chocolates that you will find here as you explore my website.
I have been creating luxury handmade chocolates now for at least 15 years and love every moment of the process.
This is especially because it not only makes me smile every day but also, I hope, you too!
I trained with Slatteries in Manchester and Callebaut in Banbury with whom I continue to work on a regular basis. This makes sure that I am bringing you the latest, the best and most delicious ideas in chocolate.
I create all my chocolates in my bespoke chocolate studio in South Leicestershire by hand and in small batches. This artisan process also ensures that, with the beautiful, local ingredients I include in my recipes, every chocolate you taste and the flavours we explore together will be unique.
The individual decorative styles I use to finish and to package my chocolates are chosen with great care so that they not only taste amazing but look beautiful too. No two chocolates that I make for you will therefore look exactly the same – although I do try to persuade them to resemble each other as appropriate!
And, importantly, I also simply love the flavours of the Callebaut range of chocolates. And that this company is continually innovating to provide us with new things to explore to suit different tastes and dietary preferences and requirements.
Nenette on the radio
Below you can listern to me speaking on Radio Leicester with Ben Jackson as he recorded a session with me last week in my chocolate studio. We had a lot of fun messing around with chocolate. You can hear all about my business, how I fell into chocolate (it was nearly as messy as that sounds!) and a bit about chocolate tempering and tasting. We made a Smashable together! Let me know what you think…
What can you expect from Nenette
When you buy your chocolates from Nenette, you can be sure that you are helping to support others.
I am careful to choose chocolate which has a sustainable story: where reinvestment and support is focused towards the growers and producers who can therefore thrive and grow. Protecting the future of cocoa plantations around the world, I am proud to select Belgian chocolatiers, Callebaut from whom I source all my chocolate. For more information, please visit the Callebaut website.
