The Southbank really does spoil us greedy guts, filling our calendars with food events featuring everything from cheese and wine to tea and coffee. The latest vice to feature in its own three-day event behind the Royal Festival Hall is the annual Chocolate Festival, celebrating all things cocoa from 9-11 December. The roster of top names in the world of chocolate is vast, from chocolatiers William Curley and Damian Allsop to purveyors Valrhona and Rococo Chocolates. Choc treats will be available to sample and purchase, whether you’re looking for a high-quality hot chocolate, delicate chocolate macarons or an intriguing chocolate beer. Roll up to the Chocolate Cookery Theatre for demonstrations, tutored tastings and talks from experts.
