Paul A Young's Fine and Innovative Chocolates (Londonist)

Recently, Paul and team were kind enough to give Londonist a tour of their Islington shop and allow us to sample the best chocolate we’ve ever tasted. Witnessing firsthand their “skill over machinery” approach (no digital thermometers, just fingers and mouths and experience) left us speechless. Of course, we must admit that we took every opportunity to cram our mouths with yummy chocolaty goodness as politely and discreetly as possible. We were similarly awed by Paul’s focus on seasonality (a Pimms and lemonade chocolate for summer? Yes!) and his use of fresh and real ingredients (no flavour syrups here – everything is made in shop, by hand). Splendid.

No fair, other chocolate lovers would like to apply for that taste test! :)
