Creating an amazing chocolate bar from a cocoa bean is a wonderful, wonderful process. Melt's team of top chefs will guide you through this magical transformation, every step of the way, all in the heart of Notting Hill. You will sort the cocoa beans and then roast them. We will then crack and winnow them. With a pestle and mortar, we will grind the chocolate beans until they are fine. You will taste the chocolate at each stage to see how the flavours of the chocolate changes and develops over time. This journey releases different flavours notes which can be very dramatic.
The next stage is really beautiful - think of a diamond - one of the hardest substances known to man - but transparent. Light shines through it. This is because the carbon structures are completely aligned - it is the same with chocolate, tempering aligns the crystal structures to a similar pattern and uniformity. Once tempered - you will pipe or mould the chocolate into your very own beautiful bar. You will then take your own unique Chocolate bar home with Melt's beautiful packaging and a designer bag. An authentic experience from the Heart of Notting Hill. I will interweave the history of chocolate - so you see how the Aztecs created such beautiful cocoa.
A unique experience in the heart of Notting Hill, London.
