New Flavours for Autumn
Gilbert & Swayne’s Workshop is open
I hope you have all had a happy and healthy summer. Thank you all for your patience and understanding during my workshop closure.
During my time away, I have also been experimenting and developing new flavours, which are now available in our shop.
Many of you have recently discovered the joys of cycling and this has inspired me to relaunch my Brompton Bike collection (originally commissioned by Brompton Bikes for their world championships at Goodwood in 2014). I will be including some additional flavours from my classic collection.
Until the end of the month, I will be offering a complimentary box of my new flavours for any orders over £30.00.
Thank you all again for your patience.
Love Our Style?

Handmade Chocolates for all occasions
Our chocolates are made with fresh cream, fresh herbs, spices and both Fairtrade and single origin, organic chocolate.
There’s also collection for lifestyle vegans made with organic coconut oil.
One Day Chocolate Making Courses
The Perfect Gift
If you’re looking for a gift that goes beyond the last chocolate in the box, our One Day Chocolate Making Course could be the beginning of a chocolate habit that lasts a lifetime.
Gift vouchers for our courses are sent with a complimentary box of Gilbert & Swayne chocolates. For more details on course availability and prices, email Jane for more information.
Courses will hopefully start again mid-Autumn, following any guidance from the Government and local Environmental Health team. To maintain social distancing, these will be for individual family groups or single households of 2-4 people.

CHOCOLATE FOR CHARITY
Gilbert & Swayne has always had charitable work at the heart of all it does with 10% of all purchases going to a charity of your choice.
Jane recently made 1200 chocolates for a fundraising event organised by Hugh Bonneville for his favourite charity, Scene & Heard at the Mayfair Curzon.
Jane and Dinah met Hugh and Elizabeth, and were also treated to a pre-screening of the new Downton Abbey film, all in aid of the wonderful work of Scene & Heard.
Dinah, (Jane’s sister-in-law & next door neighbour) is a retired book conservator & creates all the Italian memento boxes in her garden studio at Gilbert’s Corner.

Scene & Heard is a unique mentoring project that partners the inner-city children of Somers Town, London with volunteer theatre professionals.
Their mentoring scheme and theatrical performances help to build children’s aspirations and boosts their self-esteem. Your support is invaluable and a small donation can go a long way to engendering future change.
