Celebrated Belgian chocolatier Pierre Marcolini launches his new autumn creations on Friday August 31 with 11 new products using little-known cocoa beans and surprising, modern recipes.
Themed as ‘Chocolate Paradise’, the selection includes a chocolate tart (individual tart, 147g - £7.90 [$10.28], 4-person tart, 536g - £29.00 [$37.72]) featuring a dark chocolate pastry crust encasing an almond and chocolate frangipane, covered with a dark chocolate and caramel ganache and topped with a Madagascan-vanilla-infused chocolate cream.
The theme also includes a palm oil-free chocolate-caramel spread (210g pot - £13.50 [$17.56]) with a new recipe from Marcolini and made from his own dark chocolate using beans from Ecuador and Cameroon, studded with pieces of salted caramel.
Maison Pierre Marcolini was founded in Brussels in 1995 by Marcolini, who is also its creative director with a reputation not just for his chocolate but for his ethical standards, sourcing premium cocoa directly from independent producers in Brazil, Cuba, Ecuador, Ghana, Madagascar and Vietnam.
Maison Pierre Marcolini now has over 30 stores in several countries, including Belgium, France, the UK, Monaco, Japan and China.
The Paradise collection also includes chocolate pastilles, pure ganaches, tablets, boxed hearts, macarons and signature Barres2 Chocolat.
