Chocolate Tasting with Hotel Chocolat

01 April 12

March saw the first of a series of exciting tasting events hosted at 195 Piccadilly in conjunction with our Head Chef, Anton Manganaro and his suppliers.

The first was hosted by Hotel Chocolat , a BAFTA Partner and the creator of the tiddly BAFTA masks that are given to guests at our Award ceremonies and events.

The evening consisted of drinks and canapés on arrival, before guests were guided on a fascinating journey through the world of chocolate, lead by Ben Leask from Hotel Chocolat’s, Rabot Estate store in Borough Market.

Guests were offered 13 chocolates to taste with differing chocolate percentages and tutored in the art of conching, a process that mixes the cocoa butter and chocolate continuously for anything from 6 hours to 3 days to produce the taste and richness of each piece of chocolate.
