Chocolate treats

The Chocolate Cellar’s reputation precedes them. Here you can expect incredible chocolates from talented chocolatier Bala Cronman, from Prenton, that would tempt those with even the strongest willpower. And Easter will be no exception. Expect exquisite eggs, brilliant bars and maybe even their wonderful hampers that are packed with chocolate treats.

A feast of food

Over the last decade the Chester Food, Drink and Lifestyle Festival has become a must attend Easter event, where every year the city welcomes people from across UK. Jean-Christophe Novelli joins this popular event as its headline chef. This fantastic event, which takes place at Chester Racecourse on April 15th – 17th, will also include the return of Gregg Wallace, who will judge the Junior Chef Competition. There will be free cooking classes for children from the Academy of Culinary Arts and an Easter Food Festival.

Baker Carolyn Royle will teach you some lesser known recipes including Sedgemoor Easter Cakes, Koulourakia Easter Biscuits and Italian Easter breads.

Spoilt for choice

There are few foods you would struggle to find at Hollies Farm Shop in Little Budworth. Easter is no exception. You’ll find chocolate eggs, hot cross buns, Easter and Sinmel cake as well as the perfect spring produce for your Easter Sunday lunch. Vine tomatoes, locally grown asparagus, new Cheshire potatoes and hen eggs are all good choices. There is also spring lamb and a great range of meats from the butchery.
