Water for chocolate with Damian Allsop

£30 per person, 7.30pm – 9pm, Friday 20 October 2006
Contented Vine Bar Restaurant, 17 Sussex Street, Pimlico, London, SW1V 4RR

Mexican blanketWhile ‘Chocolat’ has been one of the most popular chocolate related movies of recent years, our own favourite is the Mexican ‘magic reality’ film ‘Like water for chocolate’ based on the recipe packed book by Laura Esquivel.

‘Water for chocolate’ is a metaphor for a bad deal in this story, however a chocolatier with a new approach to making chocolates has managed to give us both water and chocolate in the same delicious package.

Damian Allsop working in his kitchenDamian Allsop has gained an impressive reputation during the last year in the UK for his unusual water based filled chocolates – firstly as the chocolatier at the new Notting Hill chocolate shop, Melt, and more recently as an independent consultant.

Join us for an evening of chocolate, water and science as Damian demonstrates his magic.

Truffles by Damian AllsopWith a background as a pastry chef with 16 years experience with the likes of Gordon Ramsay and Locanda Locatelli, Damian is famous for designing and creating some truly amazing chocolates that take your taste buds on a journey from the start to the finish of their melt.

This is a rare opportunity to see how this innovative chocolatier works his magic and will inspire anyone wanting to try their hand at making chocolates for themselves.

Followed by wine and chocolate chat.
