About your mentor
The Artisan Bakehouse
Horsebridge Common
This workshop will be led by Mike Noble who is an award-winning artisan chocolatier from Noble & Stace. The team are a finalist for Food Producer of the year. Mike says: "Who hasn’t dreamt of spending their days melting, moulding and creating delicious chocolate rather than hearing it drop from an office vending machine. We’re cautious types though so rather than jump feet first into the melting pot we took our time, built a dedicated chocolate kitchen and set about learning how to be chocolatiers. It was our friends who suffered most in the early days. They had to eat their way through tons of truffles, bags of bars and quite literally boxes of boxes but we all made it through and we can’t thank them enough for all their help, advice, support and patience. We’re absolutely thrilled with the way the business is evolving and remain convinced that focusing on our customers, sticking to small batch production to ensure absolute freshness and collaborating with other like-minded local food producers is the way forward. So a huge thank you to everyone who has trusted us to fulfil their chocolate cravings since 2015 and we hope to continue to do so for a very long time to come! We’re also very proud Grand Finalists in the Sussex Food & Drink Awards 2017 and Finalists in the 2019 awards!" -------------------------------- The Artisan Bakehouse is an independent family-owned and run business; the passion and vision of husband and wife team Les & Louise Nicholson.
