In celebration of London Chocolate Week (8-14 October), Kent-based Damian Allsop, who worked as a pastry chef in a string of top restaurants before setting up in business as a chocolatier, believes chocolate is going through a renaissance similar to that of wine. "We're starting to discover that with different varieties of cocoa bean you get different characters in the chocolate, and that a particular type of bean grown in Venezuela will taste very different to the same bean grown in Peru."
He will be in residence at The Mount Street Deli (100 Mount Street) from 11am to 4pm on Wednesday, 10 October 2012.
Do swing by and see him.
