Hot Chocolate and The Book!
It’s always great to explore somewhere that has a really exciting food scene. On a long weekend to Barcelona and it’s surrounding countryside recently I encountered some fabulous tapas, thick hot chocolate, wine, wow Priorat and even went to a Mushroom Festival in a tiny town in the Spanish hills.
A must see in Barcelona is the Museum of Chocolate, which has extraordinary chocolate sculptures.
Our hot chocolate area is now finished and looks super stylish. In essence - a cosy Hot Chocolate Corner within the Melt store in the heart of Notting Hill. Sit at the wonderful wooden 70’s table, lit by a Venini chandelier, browse cookbooks and magazines while listening to the delicate sounds of fresh chocolates being made in the adjacent kitchen.
Even after the above-mentioned trip to Barcelona to try hot chocolate I am still confident that the Melt hot chocolate menu is probably amongst the best you’ll fine – anywhere!
Hot chocolates include:
'The Filthy Rich' made with dark chocolate and full fat cream - to keep you going all day and all night.
'Skinny & Rich' Hot chocolate made with water.
'Fluffy Bunny' - milky hot chocolate with a spray cream tail.

The long anticipated Melt book is now in bookshops – a book of chocolate by Louise Nason and Chika Watanabe, with photographs by Jean Cazals.
A lot of hard work by everyone involved has resulted in a beautiful, easy to use, informative book. It was a joy to do and a privilege to work with the ever-energetic and talented Jean Cazals.
There are recipes to suit all skills. Detailed technical tips through to White Chocolate Brownies – something for everyone, a perfect Christmas gift.
Available from Melt, Waterstones, and other good book stores.
