The Moniaive Chocolatiers

Our Team



I’ve been a chocolatier since 2013, jumping in at the deep end with specially designed tartan chocolates for The Scottish Parliament. My background is in music and writing, but I’ve found that my creativity and steady hand come in just as useful when crafting chocolate. Working mainly with just one ingredient over many years certainly hones your instincts – chocolate can be temperamental, behaving very differently under different atmospheric conditions, but I feel I’ve got to know its foibles now like an old friend. Running chocolate workshops is a fun opportunity to pass on some of this knowledge, the arcane art of seed crystals and microscopic latticework that makes good chocolate.
