My Story

Hello, I’m Catriona Briggs Evans aka H’evans Truffles.  I am someone who enjoys forming human connections.

Since 2014 I have been passionate about working with chocolate although this has not always been the case. For 10 years I worked as a nursery assistant and then a further 8 as a classroom assistant with special needs children.

Being diagnosed with cancer was a massive curve ball and changed my life in ways I could never have imagined, not least of which was starting my own business.

H’evans Truffles is my silver lining to being ill. Maybe it is the emotional journey that makes me so passionate about H’evans Truffles.  Doubtless it influenced the ethos and direction I wanted to take it. From the outset I wanted everything I do at H’evans Truffles to be about you, your memories, passions and emotions.  Ensuring you have the ultimate client experience.

 To begin with I named the concept ‘emotionally bespoke’ but now refer to it as ‘telling your story in chocolate’.

The premise stems from my initial hobby, baking and making a wedding reception cake for a cousins wedding. Being so close to her I wanted everything to be about her and the cake was based on memories of her wedding in Italy.  The outcome was a Sicilian lemon, genoise sponge, a two tiered cake with Italian buttercream and Hydrangeas (the flowers in her bouquet) climbed the edges of each tier.  The topper, a gum paste stiletto shoe, was inspired by the spectacular shoes she wore.

After this I was curious to see what else I could do, cakes and cupcakes seemed to be everywhere and I wanted to do something unique.  Truffles topped the next cake I made, the creative scope for flavour design and displaying chocolates seemed endless. I was hooked.

I googled all things chocolate and played with different flavours.  I am self-taught and determined to move up a level I attended one of London’s leading chocolatier courses.

On my return I began incorporating my ‘emotionally bespoke’ concept.

Since 2016 I have been handcrafting truffles, truffle filled chocolates, chocolate bowls and professionally moulded chocolates for wedding favours, galas, corporate events, hotels and corporate gifts.

Chocolate evokes emotions and strong reminiscing.  How can I tell your story in chocolate?

How can we evoke your flavour?

All of the chocolates are produced on a small scale to ensure quality every time..

Bought some of these truffles at the recent Whitehead Victorian Christmas market and was so impressed I’m now ordering boxes for my family. Was especially pleased to find the dark chocolate truffles are vegan-friendly. Some of the most delicious truffles I’ve ever tasted.

Jade Beecroft

Did the trufflin experience with the lovely Catriona today. It was brilliant! We had a lovely time, it was very informative and great fun. To top it off we got to take home our truffles which tasted amazing. Thanks so much!
