William Curley's Pop-up Chocolate Shop in St Martin's Lane
A trend within pop-up shops is for them to appear within luxury hotels; another example is the new William Curley pop-up shop in the St Martin's Hotel in St Martin's Lane.
"William has been awarded Britain's Best Chocolatier by the Academy of Chocolate for five consecutive years; 2007-2011. But it's not just these recent accolades we should take note of; in his culinary career William has won numerous awards, including The Caterer's Acorn Award, The Craft Guild Pastry Chef of the Year and British Dessert of the Year. Having won the William Heptinstall Scholarship, he was given the opportunity to work under Marc Meneau at L'Espérance in France.
Suzue is also a highly respected patissier. Originally from Osaka, Japan, Suzue moved to London in 1996 where she trained at Le Cordon Bleu. She has worked at Claridges and The Savoy where she was in charge of the world famous Afternoon Teas. She has won many national competitions including Gold at Hotelympia in 2000. Both William and Suzue have represented Scotland at international culinary events, winning Gold medals in Chicago and Basle, and both won Gold at the Culinary Olympics in Germany in 2004 prior to opening their first boutique."
