Masterpiece Chocolate Selection (24 Luxury chocolate box)
An exclusive conoisseur's box of our award-winning Masterpiece Chocolates: Royal Merina, Imperial China and African Queen - all handmade in London using an exclusive methodolgy developed by Chocolatier Marc Demarquette of preparing a special ganache by "volumising" it to optimise and maximise the flavour of the chocolate.
Royal Merina: Awarded a triple Gold Star and Speciality Product from the South East at the 2011 Great Taste Awards, the Royal Merina Chocolate is truly spectacular. We use two single estate cocoas from Madagascar to create a 68% chocolate as the ganache base as well as the couverture. Pure Madagassy bourbon vanilla is infused in the cream before it is gently mixed with the chocolate, then Marc volumises the mixture and once set enrobes each chocolates in the same 68% chocolate blend. The result is a light and delicately flavoured centre, with a perfect balance of cocoa tones and vanilla. The thin chocolate couverture layer adds texture and additional cocoa tones for a most delightful chocolate experience. With such sophistication and accolade it seemed only apt to dedicate and name it after the103-year-old Merina monarchy in Madagascar.
African Queen: A 2014 Great Taste Award triple gold star AND TOP50 Foods in Britain award-winning delicately blended chocolate using a fine cocoa produced in the Ivory Coast (Cote d'Ivoire).
Our African Queen ganache filling is made of a 68% intensity, blended with fresh cream and Tanzanian honey. The base of the chocolate is a hazelnut praline mixed with crunchy Breton wafers.
The Imperial China: Awarded a triple Gold Star Great Taste Award and nominated as one of The Top 50 Foods in Britain today. Each chocolate is hand crafted and made with carefully chosen finest Vietnamese, Malagasy and Venezuelan cacaos that complement each other harmoniously. The cacoas are blended with the extraordinary White Monkey Jasmine Tea, resulting in a perfect combination of long lasting cocoa tones and subtle notes of fresh Jasmine. The result is a light and delicately flavoured center with a thin chocolate couverture layer that adds texture and additional cocoa tones for a most delightful chocolate experience. The Imperial Seal of Emperor KangXi is individually placed on each chocolate with a bespoke design made of pure cocoa butter. Emperor KangXi together with Emperors Qianlong and Yongzheng, jointly created the last and the most prosperous age of Chinese feudal dynasties, which is called "Kang-Qian Flourishing Age" in history.
