The new venture has created four full and part time jobs with manager Annie McNicholl at the helm. It’s a welcome return for Annie who’s worked at The Chester Grosvenor on and off for more than a decade. Annie, 46, from Chester, said:
“It’s nice to be back at The Chester Grosvenor and to be part of this exciting new concession. I can’t wait to introduce Chester to Rococo.”
Chocolate lovers will be able to take part in special chocolate tasting sessions held at the concession after hours and Rococo chocolate will be featuring in gourmet lunches and dinners held in the Michelin-starred restaurant ‘Simon Radley at The Chester Grosvenor’.
The new La Brasserie menu features treats for chocolate lovers with a special Rococo ‘chocolatte’, made with Rococo cocoa and hot milk, and a ‘chocolate shot’ made with 70% dark chocolate cocoa and water to create the chocolate equivalent of an espresso.
The new chocolatier is part of an ambitious project which has seen the much-loved La Brasserie undergo a multi-million pound refurbishment and reconfiguration to allow the concession to open for business at the front of the restaurant on Eastgate.
