We love craftsmanship
Davenport's founder, Jane Williams, trained under master Chocolatier Philippe Burger for 7 years.
She has travelled throughout Europe in search of chocolate inspiration. She still gets undeniably happy when tempered chocolate sets with a brilliant shine. She has mighty muscles on her whisking arm. She is at ease with tools from the 1950s as much as equipment from the present day. She finds purpose in conserving recipes from past generations, from a melting fondant cream to a chewy caramel.
We love creativity
Chocolate is incredible. You can melt it, pipe it, spray it. You can mould it, carve it, model it. You can add flavour, colour and texture. You can change its consistency, you can make a truffle, a mousse or a drink.
Chocolate is an incredible medium to work with, and we love to harness its creative potential to bring you the yummiest and most beautiful chocolates that we can.
