This week I get to share with you all a lovely and super delicious business!! My mouth is watering just thinking about it :P
'Firetail Creations - Gourmet Truffles and Chocolates is run by the wonderful Jamie who first started making truffles and chocolates years ago for her family and friends (lucky buggers - hehe) but after taking them into her workplace and being told how delicious they were and that she should sell them, Jamie decided that it was time to take her talent and create Firetail Creations. Thank goodness for that!
The name Firetail Creations comes from Diamond Firetail Finches which Jamie used to love watching when she was younger.
We were lucky enough at Once Upon A Market to have Firetail Creations join us at our September market and everybody absolutely loved Jamies Gourmet truffles and chocolates.
The most popular flavours at Firetail Creations are:
Milk Chocolate Rocky Road
Dark Chocolate Cherry Ripe
Honey Almond Nougat
and Turkish Delight Hearts
My favourite truffle flavour would have to be the Bailey's Irish Cream!! YUM!!
But that is only a small sample of the wonderful goodies you will find at Firetail Creations. Jamie has an extensive flavour list available on her Facebook page and she is always willing to trial new flavours at her customer's request! YAY!
Jamie has always been a lover of chocolate but as she has gotten older her tastes have changed and she now prefers to enjoy small amounts of the finest quality. This inspires her to use only the finest ingredients including delicious Belgian chocolates and the freshest produce. Which is certainly why they taste SO good!!
We asked Jamie what she loves the most about local markets like Once Upon A Market and here is what she had to say:
"Other than the fact that I LOVE getting out of bed early on a Sunday morning to go to work, Markets provide an opportunity for me to see people enjoying my hard work and praising what I can do. If I couldn’t see the look on someone’s face when they bite into one of my tasty treats I think I would be more nervous about getting my products out there."
Firetail Creations currently stocks Truffles in a cafe in North Adelaide and Jamie has attended a bridal fair in order to get her name out to the public. Her chocolates are the perfect addition to any desert table and can be boxed or bagged individually to use as favours or bonbonnieres.
You will also find Jamie and Firetail Creations at our next market on Sunday October 7th from 10am - 2pm at the Reynella Neighbourhood Centre, 164-170 Old South Rd, Old Reynella.
So make sure you come and say hello and try some of these delicious gourmet truffles and chocolates for yourself. I promise you won't be disappointed :D
