A chocolate-themed afternoon high tea buffet is here – it has lavish savoury chocolate items and luscious desserts

Chocoholics are going to be excited over this: a chocolate-themed afternoon tea buffet is going to be available at L’Espresso. Goodwood Park Hotel – but only for a limited time.

Showcasing a repertoire of sweet and savoury items, you can look forward to an assortment of sandwiches, freshly baked traditional English scones, salads, crunchy nibbles, hot savoury delights, chocolate pastries, and a towering chocolate fountain.


L’Espresso comes with the stylish open-concept kitchen, so you can feast their eyes on the à la minute preparation of selected buffet items.


Chocolates may usually be associated with sweet treats, but you’d be surprised that there is a strong repertoire of savoury chocolate items at the buffet, including the following:

  • An array of dainty finger sandwiches with savoury fillings balanced with gentle sweetness of white or chocolate bread.
  • Open-faced sandwiches with delectably artful creations, which see chocolate harmonising gracefully with the hearty flavours of Duck Rillette with Orange Chocolate Ganache & Pistachio Nutand the richness of Jamon Iberico & Apricot on Chocolate Pecan Nut Roll.
  • Traditional Mexican Beef Stew with Chocolate & Mini Baguette and the Crispy Shrimp & White Chocolate Arancini are set to enchant with familiar flavours that have been given a twist and infused with the refined notes of 55% and 70% Valrhona chocolate and white chocolate respectively.

Of course, you can also expect a lavish dessert section, which includes these:

  • Mövenpick Ice Creamin the appealing variations of Chocolate, Chocolate Mint, and Vanilla.
  • Chocolate pastries, from Semi Chocolate Cream Tartto morsels of ambrosia in a selection of Chocolate Pralines.
  • The luscious Jivara Earl Grey Raspberry, a lovely creation boasting citrusy fragrance marked with hints of caramel and vanilla from Valrhona Jivara 40% milk chocolate.

Other highlights include a Chocolate Fountain, replete with condiments such as Assorted Seasonal Fruit Skewers and fluffy Marshmallows. The eye-catching centrepiece is surrounded by a dazzling medley of captivating desserts such as the silky smooth Slow-Baked Chocolate Tartlets, Chocolate Fondant, and White Chocolate Mousse & Berries Shooter.

To complete the experience, a wide selection of classic and special blend premium teas are offered alongside coffee and beverages such as iced lemon tea and hot chocolate. Don’t forget to try The Number 1 Tea, a TWG Tea blend exclusive to Goodwood Park Hotel. It is a smooth black tea blended with a secret mélange of candied sweetness and evokes the velvety notes of creamy chocolate pastries. If you ask us, we think it’s an excellent accompaniment to the indulgent buffet!
