“Caragh here, founder of Caragh Chocolates. For over 20 years, our wonderful location has been a constant source of inspiration for our chocolate making adventures… It all started with the grazing cows on Sark. With their fresh, thick cream, I couldn’t resist making my very first chocolates. A real family business, our young children would help me experiment, dip chocolate and taste test on our kitchen table. Back in 1989, with no internet, a single chocolatier book became my bible. To this day I still refer to its trusted, chocolate covered pages!
Over the years, our chocolate kitchen has grown up with the family. It’s now on the side of our farmhouse, next to our lovely tea garden. The days of selling our first boxes in our local craft shop seem a long time ago, but we have always kept true to our origins. Sark Cream and champagne, Sark cream and vanilla, Sark cream and tiramisu… our pralines and chocolates remain handmade.”
