The Chef and founder of The Sweet Boutique - spent five years in the Lebanese capital Beirut as a private chef. During a visit to Damascus' main souk, al-Hamidiyeh, one of the world's oldest markets in neighbouring Syria, the huge array of Middle Eastern confectionary - especially the hand made nougat - sparked her interest in making the confection, but with a contemporary twist.
Hayley created her own original flavours using the finest ingredients - couverture chocolate, Victorian dried fruits and nuts, and free range eggs. Iranian sour berries and French rose petals add an international touch. The Sweet Boutique offers a delightful range of visually appealing and mouth-watering nougats including persimmon, pistachio and rosewater, strawberry, vanilla >bean and hazelnut and nectarine, vanilla bean and almond.
