Magical would seem to be the appropriate word for the Chez Emily Chocolate Boutique on Ashbourne’s Main Street in County Meath.
The shop front with its two large windows offer a tantalising glimpse of the treasures inside. Your mouth will water before even stepping over the threshold.
Stocking over 30 different types of chocolate, the counter is chock-a-block with the most delicious looking individual chocolates.
There are shelves of specialty boxes, beautifully wrapped and tied with ribbons, and other novelty chocolate items.
Chez Emily was established in 1996 by Ferdinand Vandaele and Helena Hemeryck. After gathering experience in Belgium they decided to start their own artisan chocolate outlet.
Ferdinand and Helena import the chocolate coverture and combine it with the best local ingredients using family recipes. Everything is manufactured at the plant in Coolquay, not too far from the shop.
Chez Emily is a proud member of Good Food Ireland.
