Julie Haylock-Sherry is the Chocolate Lady. Although she has been a chocolate maker for 28 years her adventure blossomed when her homemade after-dinner chocolates were served to a guest who liked them so much he asked where they came from so he could serve them in his restaurant. This special guest was Steven Saunders the famous chef! On finding out that Julie made the chocolates herself, Steven asked her to supply them to his restaurant.
For a period of 10 years, Julie was the BBC Radio’s ‘Cambridgeshire Farmhouse Cook’ and she is a regular contributer to BBC Local Radio channels and the Satellite TV Shopping Channels where she demonstrates chocolate making and equipment.
Encouraged by the enthusiasm of people for her diverse selection of chocolates and hand-made sweets, Julie has written a book called ‘Chocolates from Steeple Bumpstead’ and runs demonstrations at her chocolate workshop.
Julie has recently recorded a video on chocolate making and she has written various recipes and articles.
