Margaret of York

The recent discovery of an extraordinarily moving bequest left by Margaret of York, sister to Edward VI and Richard III, has prompted Kristel Boelaert, chocolatier at Chocolat at Home to create a romantic tribute in chocolate.

Margaret of York was married to Charles the Bold, Duke of Burgundy and lived in Flanders.

Here she cherished her spiritual relationship with the monks of the Charterhouse cloister in Herne, Belgium, just a stone’s throw from the Chocolat at Home atelier.

In her will, she decreed that, whilst her body would be interred in the cathedral church of Mechelen, her heart should be buried in a casket within the walls of the monastary in Herne

Chocolat at Home is an Belgium-based supplier of premium quality ingredients and equipment for home chocolatiers. In celebration of this unique link between Britain and Flanders, Kristel has created a praline-filled chocolate heart kit supplied in a golf-foiled casket together with a brief history of Margaret’s life.

Full details of the this and other kits as well as chocolate couverture , fillings, moulds, packaging and decoration can be found at

Notes to editors:

Chocolat at Home kits range from a simple truffle kit to a professional praline pack, suitable for both absolute beginners and experienced chocolate makers.

All the ingredients are Belgium-sourced and selected for purity and clean-label content.

As well as complete kits, Chocolat at Home will sell over thirty different types of chocolate (including Fair Trade, low-fat and organic) and carry a comprehensive stock of specialist packaging, chocolate decoration, surface printing film, praline fillings, moulds and tools.

Even the basic truffle kit includes 70% cocoa-solid dark chocolate, mould, packaging, tools
and, of course, a carefully-tested recipe.
