Tea for sweet tooths
Lovers of fine chocolate will drool over William Curley’s Couture Chocolate Afternoon tea, just launched at the Halkin hotel. Curley, the multiple winner of Britain’s Best Chocolatier, has given the Belgravia venue’s classic teatime spread a delectable edge. There are treats such as a chocolate cake centred with mango compote and topped with passionfruit curd, and a black forest dome of dark-and-white chocolate mousse with kirsch-soaked sponge and cherry compote. Yum! The afternoon tea is served between 3pm-6pm daily, for £37.50pp.
