We challenged chefs of three different skill levels – amateur Stephen, home cook Daniel, and professional chef Saul Montiel from Cantina Rooftop – to make a rich cup of hot chocolate. Once each level of chef had presented their magnificent mugs, we asked expert food scientist Rose to explain the choices each cocoa-maker made along the way – both good and bad. Which cup of hot chocolate are you dipping a sugar cookie into?
