    Mille®'s Note:

    The "Witchery" restaurant in Edinburgh is located in a building (near Edinburgh Castle) where the "Old Hell Fire Club" held their meetings. Warm Dark Chocolate Torte is one of the most heavenly (and most expensive!) desserts on the menu. This is one of the most elegant and exquisite sweets that you will ever eat or serve to family or dinner guests
