Tasting some of the best chocolate in the world in the heart of historic Notting Hill whilst also telling one of the greatest stories in the world. You will also make chocolate from the Bean to the Bar. Making your very own personal chocolate bar which you can share with your friends. We love telling the story about this American "food of the gods". Its spiritual roots, how its farmed, made and how to taste it and truly appreciate it. Learning its history and origins helps one appreciate its taste and enhances the sensory experience of tasting it. We will transport you to in an immersive multi-media way to the Aztecs kingdom in Central America, then to Venice, Italy and finally to the British and American contributions to chocolate. Contributions that requires some explanation. We will make chocolate from Bean to Bar - an incredible journey that lets you fully understand all the steps in this wonderful process.
I'm the Managing Director of Melt, London's Most Luxurious Chocolate Company, with over 12 years of experience in pursuit of the world's best chocolate. Melt is located in the historic heart of Notting Hill. We offer a unique experience as our kitchens are located directly in our shops in Notting Hill. We are passionate about revolutionizing people's understanding of chocolate. Chocolate is at the heart of one of the greatest stories ever told - and we love telling that story. Chocolate is a beautiful spiritual plant that modern industry has ruined. Chocolate is a gift from the Americas to the world. Think of chocolate from the Americas, Coffee from Africa and Tea from Asia. It's the "American dream" food that we want the world to fall back in love with again.
