Eves Chocolate Shop
Singled out for an Irish Food Writers' Guild Chocolate Lovers' award, Eve St Leger's very special factory shop near University College Cork may be a little out of the way, but her wide range of exquisite artisan treats makes it 'worth a detour' for chocoholics.
Using traditional hand-made methods, Eve has been producing outstandingly good chocolates here since 1993. She uses only the best ingredients, including top quality dark, milk and white chocolate and fresh Irish cream, to produce a skilfully crafted range - including specialities for Christmas and Easter - which is known for its great flavour and texture.
Eve's shop is worth a special visit, but her distinctive black and white boxes are also easy to spot in other shops.
