Paul A. Young – creating the finest of chocolates in Central London

As if perfectly packed chocolates flavoured with pumpkin would ever work? Or marmite for that matter?! I’ve just eaten my words quite literally as these quirky creations from artisan chocolatier Paul A. Young are pretty much the most delightful thing I’ve ever tasted! 

Lucky for us, Paul has just opened his fourth chocolaterie in London which will be located at Heal’s flagship store on Tottenham Court Road. 

His chocolate has been winning awards for years – even Nigella is a fan, declaring his sea salted chocolate as an ‘inspiration!’ 

Although Paul already has 3 chocolate shops, this is the first time you can drop by and sit down to enjoy the delights that you’ve just purchased… What could be better than a steaming mug of the richest hot chocolate you’ve ever tasted, accompanied by a delicious cocoa nib drenched cookie or a slice of rich ganache-covered chocolate cake? 

With innovative, inspirational and fascinating chocolate and truffle combinations to try, you might be there some time. These are my recommendations: 

Banoffie Pie – A salted banana caramelia layered with double cream, white Grenache and coated in crunch (66% Ecuadorian chocolate) 

Peanut Butter and Raspberry Jelly – Whole nut peanut butter ganache with a vibrant raspberry reduction layer, coated in 40% milk chocolate 

Marmite Truffle – Marmite blended with 64% Madagascan dark chocolate 

Sea Salted Caramel – Multi award winning world famous caramel. Smooth and safe with a tang of Maldon sea salt in a 64% Madagascan dark chocolate shell 

Before you ask, yes I did try them all! Don’t judge us until you’ve tried them!
