Pleased to present the second chapter of the Pleasant Vices Series. In this episode I'm joined by master chocolatier Paul A. Young as we explore the British Museum's historical chocolatey connections. Join us as we discuss our 18th century chocolate champions and recreate a Georgian hot chocolate (introduced to London by British Museum founder Sir Hans Sloane) with a Mesoamerican twist.
Then in part two of the 'Chocolate' episode, Paul and l follow on from our hot chocolate adventure to temper chocolate into a gorgeous chocolate replica of the Parthenon frieze (the mould was kindly made by the British Museum facsimile maker). To check out the method and mould you can watch the recipe video here.
