In Olive Magazine, I read about an interesting survey done by The Academy of Chocolate. (I should be their president.) You can read the full list of winners at www.academyofchocolate.org.uk. Chocolatier of the Year 2006 went to William Curley of Richmond (williamcurley.co.uk) and best new chocolate shop was Paul A. Young Fine Chocolates in London (payoung.net).
I mention this because so often people are asking where to go for good chocolates.
