Paul A Young Chocolate Afternoon Tea at Harvey Nichols

Two weeks ago we were invited to a preview of chocolatier, Paul A Young's new collaboration with Harvey Nichols. Released just in time for National Chocolate week and available throughout October, this new menu is a treat for the chocolate lover in us all.

Paul's quirky take, infuses cocoa into a selection of teatime treats, with highlights including chocolate and Gorgonzola sandwiches to start, a delightful cocoa nib tea, and chocolate tarts and mousse to finish.

Served alongside cucumber and beef sandwiches, the chocolate finger is a very different take on traditional afternoon tea fare, proving to be quite a talking point amongst our fellow diners, with Paul himself admitting that 'you'll either love it or hate it' - but love it we did. Think of a refined version of Dairy Milk Philadelphia and you can go some way to imagining the taste.

Next up we were treated to a quartet of scones, in fruit and brown sugar varieties. Now out of every scone we've ever tasted - and we've tasted a lot - the brown sugar has to be one of our favourites. Teamed with a salted caramel spread and cream, these were an absolute delight and top of our recommendation list. The cakes were similarly impressive, and though I would've liked to see a decadent piece of chocolate cake or selection of Paul's chocolates on the menu, carrot and chocolate cake was a good second - and exactly what the doctor ordered after our recent afternoon tea hiatus!

All in all I'd say the Paul Young afternoon tea is definitely one to try out if you're looking for something a bit special this month, so make sure you head to Harvey Nick's site to book your place.

Starting at £20 pp, Paul A Young's afternoon tea is available nationwide until the end of October. Book your place here.
