The truffle making workshop at Market Harborough was far, far more than the title suggests.We learnt so much about the production and history of chocolate accompanied by tasting. The truffle making was great fun. Thoroughly recommended!

I don´t drink coffee, so good quality hot chocolate is my favourite drink and vice of choice. If you are a chocolate lover, do stop and have hot chocolate here- it is well worth it. I had 100% dark chocolate and it was absolutely exquisite....More
