The Chocolate Weekly: 42 – 2014

Welcome in the 42nd week of this year and the first week of London Chocolovers. Let’s start it in the best possible way with a 12 steps chocolate programme, which is fun, pleasant and easy to follow. There is only one simple rule:

“Never be more than 12 steps away from chocolate!” 🙂

 

This week it will be even easier, since  it’s the national chocolate week so there will be a lot going on for chocolovers in London. You can find all the information about the events at http://www.chocolateweek.co.uk/

But as we all know, some of the best things are not always part of the official programmes. Some of them are simply best kept secrets, like this lovely chocolate tart in Mayfair at Brown’s which is our chocolate creation of the week:
