Afternoon Tea With A Master Chocolatier By Fiona Sanderson

Paul A Young

With Easter just around the corner, chocoholics and those with a particularly sweet tooth look forward to their chocolate eggs! Now they can have real reason to rejoice, as master chocolatier Paul A. Young has created an exclusive chocolate-inspired afternoon tea at one of London’s top hotels, the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane. Young’s passion for his craft and cutting-edge creativity has deservedly led him to be ranked amongst the world’s best chocolate artisans and as such, he is a founding member of The Guild of Fine Chocolate.

Launching on Monday 14th April (just in time for Easter) in the stately home environment of the Park Room, the multi award-winning Young has creatively combined the finest chocolate with Grosvenor House’s traditional, award-winning afternoon tea. The Luxury Channel was invited along to try freshly-baked buttermilk scones with Devonshire clotted cream and Young’s sea salted caramel sauce – utterly delicious!

The chocolate twist to the afternoon tea continues as Young cleverly offsets Venezuelan chocolate with cucumber in the very classic cucumber sandwich. A tasty twist to your afternoon tea. We also enjoyed the Earl Grey Tea chocolate tart. Don’t forget the glass of champagne to go with it!
