The Art of Chocolate Making

A tantalising master class from the St. James’s Hotel and Club in association with paul.a.young.

The St. James’s Hotel and Club has partnered with Paul A. Young to introduce all chocoholics or budding ‘choccie’ enthusiasts to the art of luxury chocolate making.

This fun and interactive masterclass will be led by one of Paul's Head Chocolatiers, in the beautiful surroundings of the Mayfair Suite at the St. James’s. Each ‘student’ will learn how to taste chocolate, and how to produce their very own impressively scrumptious truffles. And at the end of the class, get ready for a chocolate feast…

Michelin starred Executive Chef William Drabble has excelled himself with the creation of a 3 course chocolate themed menu with matching wines. This consists of wild mushrooms with ceps and chocolate sauce, followed by venison with bitter chocolate sauce and culminating with a truly mouth-watering dessert.

Finally, the hotel’s expert Sommelier, Marco Feraldi, will serve a selection of chocolates handpicked by paul.a.young himself; each different flavour will have a matching wine and Marco will give advice and on the perennial problem of which wines to pair with chocolate.

So why not book the course and wow your friends and family next time they visit with your very own amazing chocolate and wine pairing knowledge!
