New marmalade brownie at London’s Grosvenor House hotel

London's Grosvenor House hotel has announced that chocolatier Paul A Young has developed a dessert that now appears on its Great Room banqueting menu and is exclusive to the location.  

The tasty treat is a marmalade brownie, featuring a smoked salted caramel as well as bourbon ice cream.

It comes after Young created a chocolate afternoon tea – a limited edition – which guests had the chance to enjoy at the hotel earlier in 2014.

His marmalade brownie is on the menu for events in the hotel's Great Room, which is the biggest five star ballroom on the continent.

This hosts the likes of the Pride of Britain Awards and  the BAFTA Awards Dinner.

The 3,100 square metre venue is able to seat as many as 2,000 people at dinner and often sees famous faces, royals and heads of state dine within its walls.

Mr Young has a total of four shops and can often be seen on television.

"Nigel [Boschetti, the hotel's executive chef]  and his team are experts in mass catering and developing extraordinary menus for Great Room events. I really enjoyed creating this dessert with Nigel and his team and look forward to seeing hundreds, if not thousands enjoying it all at once!" commented the artisan chocolatier.

Mr Boschetti himself said that his team enjoyed its work with Young on the afternoon tea and wished to provide people organising events with a chance to pick a dessert from the chocolatier.

The team wish to "really give that extra wow factor and talking point to their menu," via the move, he said.

"We can seat up to 2,000 guests for dinner in the Great Room and I am sure Paul's Marmalade Brownie dessert will be very popular!" he added.

Grosvenor House is a JW Marriott Hotel with 494 guest rooms, 74 of which are suites. It can be found near Hyde Park in London.
