based in cape town, alexander avery was created by a former financier, alan clegg, who escaped the world of commerce, aspiring to follow a more creative pursuit. With a passion for high quality refined chocolate the kernel of the idea to start a chocolaterie was prompted by a struggle to find interesting easter eggs or exciting flavoured pralines in south africa. After returning from training with top chocolatiers in europe, he decided to set up a chocolate kitchen in cape town, where he could explore the best quality chocolate and marry these to exciting flavours.
