The Michelin starred Galvin brothers are collaborating with Valrhona, the French premium chocolate manufacturer, in all their London restaurants. At Galvin at The Athenaeum, this is taking the form of the Valrhona Chocolate Afternoon Tea.
Valrhona is a chocolate manufacturer based in Tain-l’Hermitage, a small town near Lyon in France. The chocolate company dates back almost 100 years, when the French pastry chef Albéric Guironnet started creating the gastronomic chocolate. It has since become one of the leading high-end chocolate producers in the world, with chefs and chocolate aficionados from around the globe choosing it for their chocolate creations. In fact, the Valrhona brand also runs the École du Grand Chocolat – a professional culinary school that focuses on chocolate dishes and pastries.
It’s therefore no wonder that our very own Galvin brothers have chosen Valrhona as the chocolate of choice for their decadent creations in celebration of Chocolate Week. At Galvin at The Athenaeum, the Valrhona Chocolate Afternoon Tea includes a range of sophisticated creations.
Embrace Chocolate Week and enjoy some of the best gastronomic chocolate in the world with our Valrhona Chocolate Afternoon Tea, served 15 to 21 October and available Monday to Saturday 12.30pm to 4.30pm and until 5.30pm on Sundays.
