Fiona Sciolti will be appearing at the show on Sun 25th and Mon 26th March.
Fiona Sciolti is an award winning International Artisan chocolatier who draws upon her Anglo- Italian background and love of natural country flavours to make extraordinary chocolates.
Fiona loves to use many locally sourced and seasonal ingredients throughout the year, such as flowers, fruits and herbs, and many different varieties of honeys. She often sources through foraging from the English countryside, Heritage country estates and established gardens, including her own.
The result is a veritable artist’s palette of changing flavours as the seasons roll by. But it doesn’t end there; Fiona’s passion, verve and enthusiasm bubble over and she loves to inspire others to have a go themselves, through her vibrant demonstrations throughout the UK and at venues such as The Royal Festival Hall, London. She passes on simple techniques to make chocolatiering accessible to all, whilst adhering to those core values of natural and seasonal.
Her portfolio is impressive; creating chocolates for clients such as Christian Dior, Country Living Magazine, The Barbican, National & International Charities with Royal Patronage and Buckingham Palace. This year her work took her to Thailand where Fiona was invited to create Asia’s first range of Botanical Chocolates for a Six Star Luxury Spa Retreat.
Over the years she has attracted the attention of Celebrity chefs, Magazines, TV and BBC Radio; putting in appearances on Alan Titchmarsh’s “Love Your Garden”, “The Alan Titchmarsh Show” and “Secret Supper Club” with Ollie Smith.
Fiona also judges for the Great Taste Awards – the UK’s most prestigious food awards.
