Godiva has created a new range of chocolates, Wonderful City Dreams, which honours the cities in which its Chef Chocolatiers live.
Wonderful City Dreams, available in a 9-piece and 18-piece collection, will be previewed at next month’s Summit of the Americas (booth 823).
Chef Thierry Muret used a slice of caramel cheesecake to represent New York. His cheesecake mousse, featuring a fine crumble in a blonde chocolate couverture, is decorated with a graphic of the Statue of Liberty.
Chef Philippe Daue’s white chocolate ganache with lychee and roasted hazelnut nibs represents Shanghai.
To denote Tokyo, Chef Yannick Chevolleau has created a caramel, orange and Yuzu milk chocolate ganache. It has a slightly sour taste and is decorated with an illustration of Japan’s parliament building.
For London, Chef Jean Apostolou has placed the city’s iconic red double-decker bus on top of his white chocolate piece filled with strawberry and violet ganache.
Chef Ilse Wilmots has reinterpreted the classic Godiva heart to represent Brussels. The dark chocolate praline is filled with a caramel-flavoured hazelnut praliné ganache, refined with crunchy Bresilienne caramelised nuts.
The Wonderful City Dreams gift box was designed by renowned French illustrator and comic artist Pénélope Bagieu. It depicts a colourful skyline of famous global landmarks.
Godiva’s new Gold Discovery 6-piece and 12-piece collections will also be presented at Summit of the Americas.
Gold Discovery is a collection of ganaches, pralines, mousses and caramels presented in a gold gift box embossed with the signature ‘G’, the Lady Godiva emblem and tied with a gold satin ribbon.
