Chocolate shop wins taste prize
Published 01/09/14



A CHOCOLATIER has tasted success after scooping three prizes for her creations.

Tutu Delicious in High Street, Watlington, received a three-star award in the Great Taste Awards for its apricot and rosemary chocolate and two one-star awards for its orange and balsamic vinegar and mango and chilli confectionary.

Owner Zoe Haynes, 54, said: “I can’t tell you how happy we were.

“You have about 20 to 30 judges considering each item and every single one of them has to agree that what they are tasting is the best. When they agree you are awarded three stars.”

The awards attracted about 10,000 entries of which 153 were awarded three stars.


Tutu Delicious recently moved to a larger shop which has been split in half to create a workshop where people can watch Mrs Haynes make her chocolates.

She said: “I get to meet all the customers, which I hadn’t done before because I had the workshop off-site.

“It has taken me about five years to learn the craft. I’ve done various courses and I’ve had the shop for three years.”

Mrs Haynes paid tribute to her team, including Liza Simon, who runs the shop and handles the marketing, Pat Warrener, who does all the packing and packaging, and her husband Simon.

There will be a celebration party with a chocolate-making demonstration at the Granary Deli in High Street on Friday, September 12 at 7pm.
