Audrey's handmade English Chocolates
Box designed by Nick Cave
Dark chocolate, Rose and Violet Creams
`In 1997, whilst I was resident — in fact the sole resident — in a mysterious rehab facility in Bury St Edmunds, I was introduced to I.M. Birtwistle. One of the counsellors thought I might like to meet an ‘extraordinary woman’ and drove me to a cottage in Kings Lynn. There I was introduced to a lady in her late seventies. She was a staunch Roman Catholic, a very fine poet and ran an art gallery; she was also completely blind.
The first thing she asked me when I walked into her book-crammed front room was, “Are you a papist?”
I replied, “No.”
She asked me, " then where do you get your spirituality from
I answered, “God, Himself.”
There began a deep friendship that continued to her death in June of 2006.
I would travel to Kings Lynn regularly through those years, to sit with her and talk. She insisted that I bring her Rose and Violet Cream chocolates — which I always did. I would stop at Audrey’s Chocolates in Hove before taking the train to Kings Lynn to visit her.
These chocolates are in memory of dear Lilla. The most erudite, opinionated, devotional, outrageously provocative, totally unique and deeply kind individual I have ever met.´
