If you weren’t aware by now that we are halfway through Chocolate Week 2016, well where have you been quite frankly? Granted, there’s pretty much a week for everything these days but some are more worthy than others- and this is one that rightfully deserves a permanent place in the calendar, so grab a bar of your favourite and indulge.
But how best to celebrate Chocolate Week? Well if you don’t manage to make it along to Earls Court for The Chocolate Show this weekend (14th – 16th October), there plenty of other venues across the city getting their Willy Wonkas on by putting on a Chocolatey spread:
London Steakhouse Co. has partnered with Fairtrade chocolatier Divine to launch a Toblerone cocktail (£8.00). The chocoholics dream is an indulgent concoction of Divine’s Milk Chocolate Toffee & Sea Salt and Milk Chocolate with Whole Almond. It will be served in a chilled Martini glass in Chelsea (The Toblerone Martini) and as a Shake (The Toblerone Classic) in the City.
Having recently launched its hugely successful ARTea, Lancaster London will put a chocolate-y twist on the budding artists favourite with its Divine Chocolate ARTea. Inside the authentic painters box will lay an array of edible art, alongside tempting Divine chocolate treats. State of the ‘Art’ Divine chocolate scones will be served alongside paint tubes filled with Cornish clotted cream and strawberry jam – giving you all the tools needed to devise a cocoa-creation. Lancaster London’s Divine Chocolate ARTea Afternoon Tea will be available from the hotel’s first floor Lounge Bar for £35.00 per person.
K West Hotel & Spa has created a ‘Good Enough to Eat’ Spa Treatment. The treatment will begin with a back exfoliation using a Mediterranean orange scrub, followed by a soothing sweet almond oil massage. A warm firming and hydrating chocolate mask will then be applied to the back, before moisturising it with a vanilla and cardamom oil. Available only during Chocolate Week, the limited edition K Spa treatment is priced at £90 per person, including access to the hotel’s award-winning Wet Spa facilities. Guests will also be treated to the exclusive Chocolate Hopper Cocktail which will feature mint liqueur, white Mozart liqueur, double crème, Divine milk chocolate and dark chocolate Azteca bitters.
