Karstā šokolāde

Already in the 18th century all the royal families of Europe used chocolate. This cocoa sweetness was especially appreciated by King William III of England, who in 1699 built a chocolate kitchen in Hampton Court, in which the honor of preparing hot chocolate for the royal family was given only to the most outstanding masters.

Hot chocolate is offered to guests of the Jelgava Palace, who, after visiting the museum, wish to fully experience the baroque atmosphere in the company of a modern court lady in a pleasant mood, and for newlyweds and their guests - with a program suitable for a wedding.
