“I’m as in love with chocolate making as I was when I made my first truffle. I believe that handmade chocolates should be just that – hand made from beginning to end without the use of artificial flavours, stabalizers and preservatives. This allows the ingredients to really shine and gives the artist license to get creative with their flavours and ideas” – Paul A Young
