A few weeks ago at the Christmas food and gift fair as I was looking for local options to Christmas food essentials. Luckily I also found some interesting food people who haven’t been part of the show yet. One of them was Rosella from Okie Coco who kindly came to Siren to tell me more about what it is like to make chocolates.

Rosella chatted about how she started making chocolates, what inspires her to come up with new flavours and how in the future she would like her own chocolate cafe.
