The bar is now elegantly presented in a black box decorated with gold filigree and wrapped in thick gold foil. Very sumptuous indeed and it will make a perfect gift for somebody.
I might be wrong but I believe William Curley is the first person to introduce a House Chocolate and what a great idea. I can't understand why it took so long when you consider restaurants have been doing it with wine for years.
A 65% cocoa content. A intoxicating, deep, rich, 'forest floor mixed with wild berries' aroma wafts up from this little bar of dark chocolate.
Handmade, a shiny ebony finish with a simple design. This bar has a great snap! Liquid dark chocolate melts sublimely on the tongue with fruity acidity leaking out unexpectedly, adding that extra level of flavour.
In comparison to a Peruvian 64 that I've just tasted, it is silky smooth and full of subtle flavours, that make the hairs on the back of my neck stand up on end! I don't get that response with all chocolate.
William Curley has been awarded The Academy of Chocolate's Best British Chocolatier accolade three years in a row.
House Dark 65
William and Suzue Curley, have three boutiques in London including, Richmond-upon-Thames opened in 2004, which was their first, Belgravia a much larger shop opened in 2009 and finally a concession in Harrods. Interestingly, there is a dessert bar at their Belgravia boutique. I wonder how it compares to Jason Atherton's, Pollen Street Social?
