Based in Bold Street in Liverpool city centre, Ropes & Twines is still open for takeaway and collection during lockdown and has paid its own tribute to NHS staff
Liverpool coffee shop and wine bar Ropes & Twines has unveiled a stunning window display in honour of the of the NHS workers on the front line of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The magnificent display in the window of the Bold Street outlet is made up of chocolate block NHS letters and beautifully handcrafted chocolate flowers complete with petals, leaves, foliage and a butterfly with the entire creation completely edible.
Taking three weeks to hand-make by Ropes & Twines’ in-house chocolatier Remy Kuijken and his team, the window display will bring a touch of colour, positivity and light during what has been a tough start to 2021.
Ropes & Twines is remaking open during lockdown for takeaway and collection from 11am to 5pm, Thursday to Monday, and is offering 10% off for all NHS workers on takeaway, coffee and wine (valid with an NHS card).
Remy said: “We wanted to create a display that anyone walking by on Bold Street or is popping in for takeaway items can enjoy. The NHS workers have been the backbone of the UK throughout the pandemic and as we’re back in another national lockdown it felt fitting to create something to show our appreciation.
“At Christmas time we created Liverpool’s wonderful Bold Street entirely out of gingerbread and we knew that when we dismantled it, something amazing had to supersede it.
“I got to work on handcrafting the NHS block letters which took three weeks to make, build and create and then sprayed them with multicoloured cocoa butter to ensure the entire creation was completely edible.
“Myself and the team at Ropes & Twines hope that it brings some joy during this difficult time and helps to lift people’s spirits.”
