Old Bond Street’s Master Chocolatier
Charbonnel et Walker has been established as Britain’s Master Chocolatier since 1875. In that year King Edward VII (then Prince of Wales) encouraged Mme Charbonnel to leave the chocolate house of Maison Boissier in Paris. He asked her to join Mrs Walker to establish a fine confectionery house on London’s Bond Street.
