Former chef, Peter Edmunds, says he fell in love with chocolate (and farmer's markets) when he and his wife, Michelle Fahy, lived in France for almost two years. The treasured ritual of eating a single handmade chocolate after dinner was something Peter and Michelle wanted to continue when they came back home. "On my return to Australia, I knew I wanted to do something with food and it had to be organic." Hence Lindsay & Edmunds handmade organic chocolates was born in early 2008.
Lindsay & Edmunds handmade organic chocolates combine Peter and Michelle's passion for the "superior taste and environmental benefit of quality organic food, combined with his love of the French chocolatier". The single origin Belgian couverture is certified organic and Fairtrade. The range is extensive and the chocolate simply exquisite!
The Lindsay & Edmunds commercial kitchen is located at Amberley Avenue, Fairbairn, Canberra, just near the 34th Squadron, and open between 7.30am and 4.00pm from Monday to Friday.
You'll find Peter's Lindsay & Edmunds stall at the Capital Region Farmer's Market in Canberra every Saturday (which Peter cheerfully and rightly points out is "THE BEST farmer's market in the country"! They also have a store in the Canberra Centre.
