Recently, I was invited to participate in a museum series that explored connections between art,
food, flavours and cultures. The Leighton House Museum was home to the famous Victorian
painter and his life and work supplied ample inspiration for a recipe.
Chocolate during Leighton’s time would surely have been in the form of a drink. An avid
traveller, he would have enjoyed the various spices from far away lands, so I’ve included star
anise, cinnamon and chilli powder.
Why not try this rich chocolate drink? Perfect to enjoy on a cold winter afternoon.
