Recognition for former Brock student and chocolatier Kerry
Posted on: 4th July 2017
Former Brock Patisserie student Kerry Witt won two prizes at an international chocolatiers awards ceremony at London’s prestigious Academy of Chocolate recently.
The 37 year-old from Lymington impressed judges with her prune and Armagnac chocolate, winning her a Silver award. She also picked up a Bronze award for her coffee chocolate.
This success meant she was the only female chocolatier from the UK to win an award for her efforts.
Kerry, who discovered her passion for making things with chocolate as a child, now runs a successful chocolate-making business known as Chocolate by Miss Witt.
Kerry said afterwards she couldn’t believe her success in the competition, which attracted entrants from 35 countries.
She said: “It takes me between three months and a year to develop a new recipe, so each one takes a lot of hard work.”
Alan Collier from Brock’s New Forest Cookery School said: “I’m really pleased for Kerry. It’s always a pleasure to see a former student do well.”
Kerry runs a chocolate stall on Lymington market every Saturday and has a website – www.chocolatebymisswitt.com
