Chocoholics at Danesfield House

Damian Allsop, Chocolate Supremo, launches a Chocolate Extravaganza Week

Wednesday 17th October 2007 11am - 1pm

Damian Allsop is hosting a tasting event at Danesfield House with a talk on understanding the flavour of chocolate and alcohol matching session.

You will get the opportunity to see one of Damian's amazing chocolate sculptures.

Damian has been working with chocolate as head Pastry chef in Michelin-starred restaurants for nearly 20 years. Working with some of the best chefs in England, France and Catalonia, in February 2002 he realised that the ingredients we add to our chocolate alter it's flavour, a simple revelation that led him to find a way to mix water (a non-flavoured liquid) with chocolate. He had to re-think what he had been taught, and re-write all of his recipes, from ice-creams and mousses to crisps, foams, gels and now ganaches.

For more details on Damian and his craft please visit He is now the first and only chocolatier in this country working in this medium.

Tickets are available, priced at £35 per person. The event commences at 11am through until 1pm. To reserve your tickets please contact a member of our events team on 01628 891010 or email:

This event will launch the start of Chocolate Week at Danesfield and a special Oak Room Chocolate themed menu will be available on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday in addition to the a la carte and the tasting menu.

We sincerely look forward to welcoming you to this event.
