Prestat chocolate was established in 1902 by Antoine Dufour, whose family first created the chocolate truffle in France, in 1895. Their first chocolate shop was at 24 South Molton Street, London. Prestat was a favoured haunt of Roald Dahl, author of Charlie & The Chocolate Factory, who made Prestat truffles the centrepiece of his novel, My Uncle Oswald. In the book, a love potion hidden inside irresistible Prestat truffles is secretly fed to Europe’s monarchs. However, in the real world, Prestat had for many years supplied chocolates to the British royal family and in 1975 was granted a Royal Warrant as Purveyors of Chocolates to Her Majesty The Queen. Prestat chocolates are of a similar quality to those of Charbonnel et Walker, another British Royal Warrant holder. Classic British favourites with some modern recipes with an unmistakable splash of theatrical colour and design. Perfect for gift giving.
