Friday Video: The King's Chocolate Kitchen

Friday, February 20, 2015
Loretta reports:

Those enduring this particularly ghastly winter may want to make a cup of hot chocolate and settle in to watch this short video.  But I hope chocolate and/or history lovers everywhere will enjoy this story about the loving recreation of ... yes, the king’s own chocolate kitchen at Hampton Court Palace.
The photo of of an early 18th century chocolate pot in the Victoria & Albert Museum was taken by Valerie McGlinchey.

Readers who receive our blog via email might see a rectangle, square, or nothing where the video ought to be.  To watch the video, please click on the title to this post.

Thanks so much for posting the link for The Making of the Chocolate Kitchen. I loved it. This short video perfect combination of history, fact, lore, and restoration. And the artisans that can re-create items from the past are a true treasure.
It was very informative and makes we want to research further on the early history of chocolate.
Thank you for sharing it.

PS: I love your blog.

That video is really interesting! I know a few people (myself included) who would be quite upset if chocolate became a luxury item :)
