Visitors will be in for a sweet treat as King George I’s royal hot chocolate will once again be served in the newly restored Chocolate Kitchen. This will be the first of many experiences that Historic Royal Palaces will unveil in the Baroque palace to commemorate 300 years since George I’s accession to the throne.

The kitchen, dating from the 18th century, will combine the re-creation of historic interiors with live interpretation and an audio visual display to show visitors how this royal beverage was made by Thomas Tosier, personal chocolate-maker to George I and George II. Visitors will discover how royal hot chocolate was prepared but and also have the chance to sample this royal Georgian delicacy.

Visitors also will be able to peer behind the scenes into the rooms where Tosier and his staff prepared the drink – the preserve of the rich and sophisticated – for the royal family’s most intimate dinners and entertainments.
