ON THURSDAY, 20th OF SEPTEMBER, Favarger, one of biggest names in Swiss chocolate, inaugurated the first chocolate tasting bar in Geneva. (And guess who was invited to go and try it first!)
The chocolate bar is a gourmet immersion and sensual experience. High wooden tables, elegant bar stools, subdued lights, jazzy music, retro-chic ambiance and of course the best selection of quality chocolate you can imagine.
Melting or crunchy pralines, heart-shaped ganaches, black chocolates and colourful domes… we worked our way through 42 chocolates from 8 themes during opening night – in the name of research!
Choose a plate of 6 gourmet chocolates (there are 8 different themes to choose from) and let your tastebuds explode as they explore new and exciting tastes and combinations.
Enjoy your tasting plate with a cup of coffee or another drink and take home your favourites in little pretty boxes.
Our favourite: The wasabi dark chocolate from the Hot and Spicy selection. Not too sweet, not too strong – but a definite hint of wasabi in a melt-in-the-mouth pure dark chocolate.
The man behind the masterful chocolate creations is Marc-André Cartier, the brand’s newly appointed chef of fresh chocolates – cool job!
THINGS TO DO IN GENEVA managed to squeeze this invitation into our busy diary – a girl needs chocolate!
