East London’s secret celebrity chef hot chocolate salon

Hot chocolate

A secret hot chocolate salon hidden in a room behind a newsagents, is popping up in East London for just two weeks from Monday 25 February.

It will be serving exclusive hot chocolates created by celebrity chefs Melissa Hemsley, Tom Hunt and Tess Ward to a backdrop of West African jazz music.

Each hot chocolate will be priced at just £1.86, which is practically unheard of in London.

But there’s a clever message behind the pricing, for the salon is being created for Fairtrade Fortnight’s #SheDeserves campaign.

The living daily wage for a cocoa farmer is £1.86, according to the Fairtrade Foundation, although the typical daily wage is just 74p and this year’s Fairtrade Fortnight is focussed on how to increase that.

Named Rosine’s Hot Chocolate Salon, after a cocoa farmer from Côte d’Ivoire, it will be found inside a Dalston newsagents between 25 February and 3 March.
