Top British chocolatier Paul. A. Young (the ‘A’ is presumably there to stop customers from requesting ‘Everytime You Go Away’ at the counter) brings his delectable creations to the West End today with the opening of a third store in Soho. Expect cocoa-based creations, from artisan bars (lavender, peppercorn, raspberry) and gooey brownies to sea-salted caramels, champagne-filled truffles, marzipan cubes and fruit-infused bonbons. At around £2 per chocolate or £6.50 for a box of 4, it’s not cheap but Young’s famous Marmite truffles and port and stilton ganaches beg to be tried. Perfect Father’s Day fodder.
