Chocolate Kitchen

From 14 February, the public will be able to visit the Chocolate Kitchen at Hampton Court Palace for the first time in almost 300 years. Our curators recently uncovered the precise location of the Chocolate Kitchen which had been used as a storeroom for many years. It is remarkably well preserved with the original charcoal braziers and much of the equipment and furniture still intact. The eighteenth century Chocolate Kitchen was once the domain of Thomas Tosier, personal chocolatier to King George I, whose wife Grace was something of a celebrity in Georgian London, trading on her husband’s important role to promote her own renowned chocolate house in Greenwich.
