Stepping into the James Bond style interior of a penthouse suite in London’s West End for the Hotel Chocolat Xmas preview was a spectacular experience.
The cool white interior worked perfectly as a counterpoint to all the dark chocolate goodies on display. Not only were the new Christmas items there, which this year included a standing version of the chocolate slab Christmas tree, some cute boxes of penguins, a special Christmas at Santa’s house set, angels and robots for kiddie stockings but also a display from the Boucan restaurant and bar , the restaurant of Hotel Chocolat from the Rabot estate in Saint Lucia and special dishes using some of the savoury chocolate sauces and recipes developed by the company.
Also new was a Christmas wreath in chocolate and fruit to slice and share and mini crackers with a chocolate treat inside and a space to write a name for place settings. The chocolate is of the highest quality and the prices on the smaller treats seem very reasonable for seasonal offerings. Look out for the amazing gold plated Pirate mask for Halloween too!
