Kimpton Fitzroy London

Did someone say chocolate? Did they? DID THEY?

Good heavens. When I was invited to Kimpton Fitzroy London, to try their new chocolate afternoon tea, celebrating the shorter Winter days and the season of decadence, I had no idea it was going to be so very special.

Do You Like Chocolate?’ is a stunning collaboration between Executive Pastry Chef and Winner of Bake Off: The Professionals 2019, Thibault Marchand and Director of Bars, Sean Fennelly, who has magically concocted four amazing pairing cocktails which match the exquisite patisserie perfectly.

Our tea was served in Fitz’s, where there were roaring fires, gorgeously rich interiors and the most beautiful festive details…

We began our tea with a selection of beautiful sandwiches – all very special and all very delicious…

The chocolate used throughout the afternoon tea is from Valrhona – a worldwide producer of exceptional, artisan quality chocolate – and Thibault has used it to craft a selection of delicate cakes to accompany the delicious drinks, all of which are included in the price.
