Paul A Young


Paul A Young is a ground breaking and inspirational chocolatier who is at the forefront of the British chocolate scene.

Paul trained as a chef before moving into the world of chocolate; his passion for his craft and his cutting-edge creativity have won him numerous awards including Best Sea Salted Caramel in the World, two years’ running, which led to him being ranked amongst the world’s best chocolatiers.

Paul has his own chocolaterie located on Camden Passage, Islington and all of ‘Paul A Young Fine Chocolates’ can also be purchased via their online shop.

Paul has a reputation as an incredibly creative chocolatier, a flavour alchemist who often incorporates unusual flavours into his wonderful chocolates and develops flavour combinations that are original, experimental, sometimes daring, yet always perfectly balanced.

Paul’s first book Adventures with Chocolate won the World’s Best Chocolate Book at the Gourmand Cookbook Awards in Paris, shortly after publication, and was included in the Independent’s Top 50 cookbooks.

He went onto write two further books including charity book Sensational Chocolate in 2016.

Paul’s latest book The Joy Of Chocolate was published in Autumn 2022 and is a love letter to chocolate including fascinating facts, stories and of course delicious recipes
