We stopped in a Hotel Chocolat recently to help kick off the opening of their new Chocolate Bar, the first in the country, and celebrate, well, all things chocolate. We sipped Prosecco and tasted confections like Pink Champagne Truffles, Dizzy Pralines, Caramel Cheesecakes and the Eton Mess (pictured above), made with Strawberry Mousse and Crisp Meringue all over a less sweeter White Chocolate. As gorgeous a taste as it looks.
CEO Angus Thirlwell flew in from London, where the first chocolate bar opened last Spring, for the event. The idea is take chocolate along the same route as wine with a focus on the ingredients, growing, harvesting and refining for a better appreciation of the taste. We tasted cocoa nibs and sipped a delicious tea made with cocoa shells, realizing we have much more to learn. Did you know that, for instance, white chocolate IS made with chocolate? Stop by, spend a little time and learn more. When you do, we suggest you try the H-Box Dark Selection.
