A few weeks ago I was treated to a seriously tasty evening, an exclusive preview of the Rococo Chocolate and Matilda The Musical collaboration. The Covent Garden branch of Rococo Chocolate is just round the corner from Matilda’s home at the Cambridge Theatre, and so a joint offering seemed fitting for the musical and chocolate shop.
Matilda The Musical, which is now playing its sixth year in the West End, is one of the most uplifting shows on in London and has been one of my favourites since I first saw it in Stratford. The perfect piece of theatre is suitable for every age with touching songs and hilarious lyrics.
The ‘Little Bit Naughty’ Package includes a pre-show chocolate tasting event at the Rococo store just across from the theatre, and pair of premium tickets to see the multi-award winning Matilda musical.
Matilda The Musical’s very special (and grown-up) ‘Little Bit Naughty’ tasting will allow you to sample Rococo’s award-winning artisan chocolates, paired with carefully selected refreshments and drinks.
Our #MatildaMusicalxRococo Tasting Menu Included:
Hayman’s Old Tom Gin paired with 65% Basil and Persian Lime Bar and Passionfruit and Rosemary Caramel
Berkswells Sheep’s Milk Cheese paired with 40% Salted Almond and Rosemary Milk Chocolate and 50% Orange blossom and Neroli Milk Chocolate
Kernel Brewery Export Stout paired with Almond, Coffee and Cardamom Marzipan and Rhubarb and Liquorice Ganache
Each of the pairings were unique and surprisingly delicious… even the cheese & chocolate (which I was sceptical about). Rococo founder and owner Chantal Coady explained each of the elements, pointing out interesting facts and telling stories from her amazing chocolate journey with Rococo.
With my sweet tooth satisfied it was time to skip across to the theatre for the evening’s entertainment. It is impossible not to enjoy Matilda, and I left the theatre singing the show’s tunes with a big smile on my face.
The ‘Little Bit Naughty’ ticket and chocolate tasting packages are available on Friday 16 June, 23 June and 30 June. The chocolate tasting package includes a premium ticket to Matilda The Musical and a pre-show chocolate tasting experience at Rococo Chocolates’ Covent Garden Boutique.
The Pre-show tasting event will include chocolate pairings with beer, gin and cheese. Packages are priced at £95 per person from See Tickets, and are available to buy here.
