G20 leaders enjoyed chocolate treat at Jamie Oliver dinner

UK chocolatier Damian Allsop supplied the G20 leaders with a touch of cacao luxury at the dinner hosted by Prime Minister Gordon Brown at 10 Downing Street on 1 April.

The diner was organised and created by Jamie Oliver and a team of his chefs.

Allsop said of his involvement: "About two weeks ago we got a call from Jamie's head chef, saying he wanted to showcase British talent at the dinner and asking us to do some chocolates.

Allsop's chocolate fillings are unusual in being water, rather than dairy, based. Those he supplied in his G20 goody box were salty liquorice, peanut, muscovado caramel, freeze-dried raspberry and fresh mint.
