From the Prestat web site:
“Our roots begin in 1902 in London by Chocolatier extraordinaire Antoine Dufour, following his family’s creation of the chocolate truffle in Chambery, France, in 1895. Antoine saw an opportunity to bring his skills to London, where chocolate cafes and shops known as Refreshment Rooms were growing in popularity. With Antoineâ€™s flair for creativity and perfection, Prestat became an instant success.
Since Antoineâ€™s day the subsequent owners â€“ his son Tony, Neville and Maxwell Croft, Stanley Cohen OBE, and half-brothers Nick Crean and Bill Keeling â€“ have continued to nourish the essence of Prestatâ€™s success: each retaining the core ingredients of the art of chocolate making and also forging new paths, creating new chocolates, mixing products hither-to-unknown.”
