Leoni Wilton, Chocolate Boutique Hotel

we’re throwing in a glass of bubbly too

If you love chocolate, shoes and handbags, a new chocolate making workshop at Bournemouth’s deliciously different Chocolate Boutique Hotel might just take you to chocolate heaven.

Perfect for special birthday treats, girlie get-togethers, hen dos and parties, the fabulous new chocolate shoe and handbag masterclasses are run by chocolatier Gerry Wilton, who first courted success in the UK with his chocolate fountain business before founding the world’s first chocolate themed hotel.

“People often tell me that shoes and handbags made out of chocolate are every woman’s ultimate fantasy,” says Gerry. "Could a girl want for more? Just in case, we’re throwing in a glass of bubbly too."

At the new masterclasses, wannabe fashionistas can learn how to create their own edible versions of Jimmy Choos complete with matching bag and satisfy their craving for chocolate, killer heels and must-have clutches all at the same time.

As well as finding out about the history of chocolate, budding chocolatiers can learn how to temper chocolate before creating and decorating a chocolate shoe with matching handbag to take home in a beautiful display box.

The sessions cost £89 per person and are held throughout the year at the Chocolate Boutique Hotel, which was recently declared one of the most scrumptious attractions in the world for chocoholics by Fox News.

Last year, the hotel was also named one of the best ‘girliest hotel getaways’ in the world by CNN Travel and described by the Sunday Times Travel magazine as one of the top six novelty hotels worldwide.

Note to editors:

Founded in 2004 by the Wilton family, Chocolate Delight was one of the first companies to have a commercial chocolate fountain in the UK and quickly established itself as the leading chocolate fountain hire company. It was soon called on by corporates, event companies and celebrities to provide fountains for functions such as film premieres and weddings, including Peter and Jordan’s. In 2006, the Wilton family saw the opportunity to expand and bought a beautiful but outdated 19th century grade II listed hotel. Christmas 2007 saw the renovation of the building and it became The Chocolate Boutique Hotel, the world’s first chocolate themed hotel. Today, Chocolate Delight is one of the most successful UK chocolate companies in its field and holds Chocolate Workshops at venues across the country. Its Corporate Chocolate Teambuilding events commenced late in 2005 and are now run all over the UK and more recently in Europe. Last year saw Chocolate Delight in Spain, France, Austria and Switzerland.
