Warning...photo heavy blog post!
Yesterday I spent a fabulous day in London on a
This was organised by my writer friend Carole Matthews as a
thank you to those who had helped promote her book
The Chocolate Lovers' Wedding.
Here we all are...
The tour leader - Jennifer is fantastic, not only is her chocolate
knowledge superb she has snippets and facts about
London as you walk to the various chocolate shops.
Despite the rain it was a brilliant day out.
We started with hot chocolate and pastries in Sketch, a rather swanky
restaurant/club in Mayfair.
Aspreys - just across the road.
First stop the Queen's chosen chocolate shop - Charbonnel et Walker
I'm clearly not royal as I wasn't too struck on the violet and rose cremes
but I did rather like the champagne truffles!
Next stop Prestat - fun, bright and quirky - very Willy Wonka.
Loved this shop!
Marzipan and Pistachio particularly good along
with London Gin truffles!
We walked by Fortnum and Mason and their windows are
Alice in Wonderland at the moment.
A real treat for the eyes.
More chocolate stops...
Paul A Young - there's even Marmite truffles here!
I couldn't quite cope with eating chocolate in every shop so I brought
some home - I'm thinking I can probably eat them later in the week!
If you fancy a Chocolate Ecstasy Tour

Take care friends -
crafty posts resuming soon!
