Weston Super Mare
In 2014 I needed a caterer who provided reasonably priced, fresh, colourful, nice food. There was a gap in the market… The Music Pantry was born!

How and what we choose to eat has a profound impact on both ourselves and our planet; our food forms the building blocks that become us; our actions shape the world around us.
Our menu showcases hemp as an incredibly versatile, delicious superfood. In a land where most of our plant-based complex proteins travel many a mile to land upon our plates, Hemp, being locally grown and harvested, is just around the corner. Containing the perfect balance of Omega Oils, and a seemingly endless list of practical, sustainable and medicinal uses, Hemp is more than just mere food for thought.
Despite its many benefits, Hemp has a history of oppression to contend with, so come and join us, beat the taboo, and celebrate Hemp as the wondrous, nutritious and ultimately tasty superfood that it is!

Who is The Chocolate Bear?
I’m James, a chef and teacher from Bristol, England. I’ve always been a massive foodie and have loved working in professional kitchens, private catering, hosting dinner parties and baking. Without getting too intimate, after meeting one very inspirational and epiphany-inducing individual, I woke up one morning wanting to share my love of food with the world. After all, what use is passion if it’s not set free?
Are you vegan, paleo, gluten-free and dairy-free?
I try to eat healthily 95% of the time. This doesn’t mean that you won’t catch me with a slice of chocolate mud cake at a wedding (especially if I’ve made it!), but it does mean that I eat food that makes me happy, satisfies my body’s needs, my mind’s needs and of course, tastes delicious.
Most of my recipes are either paleo, vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free for three reasons:
The people I cook and want to cook for follow these lifestyles / have these requirements.
I want to showcase how these choices don’t limit your culinary repertoire.
I love experimenting and finding new tastes, textures and techniques.
