A day prior to my birthday I received this beautiful surprise birthday gift from Pooja Trehan Dhamecha. I was overjoyed with it, and fell in love with it because of its looks & presentation and was excited to find out what it really had.
The box consisted –
Orange mousse was demoulded using a rubber mould , top of which was coated with orange cream that had a smooth and creamy finish. Generally a mousse is considered to be a dessert which is fluffy,creamy and rich. This one was a little different gelatin was added while whipping the dessert, so that it could be set in the cake mould & required shape could be given to it. It was garnished with orange zest, which was soaked in sugar syrup. The combination of orange zest, orange cream and mousse was bang on. All 3 components of mousse had different texture & colour which added value to the dish.
Plain cheese cake cookie cup
This dessert was as interesting as the name is. A simple dessert yet very much effective – cookie tart/cup stuffed with cheese cake mixture. Tart was made by adding choco chips to the dough, which added flavour of chocolate to every bite. The twist created by chef has worked out well. Anyone who orders from this place should definately order this.
Box full of surprises
Beautifully designed box which contained 8 flavours of chocolates. This name because every chocolate surprised me and my taste buds. Chocolates that would add flavour to your life.
1. Chilli Flavour
This flavour combination was Star of the day for me. The spiciness of chilli, bitterness and sweetness of dark chocolate with the crunch worked out well for me. If fresh chillies would have been used, it could have taken this flavour to completely different level. A flavour that will open all your senses with a single bite. Spiciness was well balanced & not over powering the flavour of chocolate.
The flavour of pista did stand out the way it should but i feel pista should be combined with something else, which will make the flavour of pista more interesting. A chocolate cube coated with slivers of pista on bottom. The smoothness of chocolate with crunch of pista worked well with each other.
3. Salted caramel
My favourite when it comes to this combination. The sweetness of caramel with a touch of salt always works along with cakes and pastries. Another invention of chocolate stuffed with sea salt caramel. As soon as u bite through, chocolate would burst open oozing out the mouth melting stuffing of sea salt and caramel. It had the same feeling
which you feel when you have chocolate Eclair.
4. Coffee crunch
The combination of coffee along with chocolate is always used by many people. The same was used by the chef of Choc Le, but the taste of coffee was on a lighter side. I somehow found it to be missing.
Another unique flavour which i have hardly seen people using along with chocolate. Secret flavour which kept me amazed to know more and more about it. Its a chocolate for people who love intense and strong flavours. Must try if you are looking out for something different.
Finally a classical combination of orange and chocolate , which made me go mad. Another stuffed chocolate with orange cream inside and thing coating of chocolate outside. As soon as you bite through it, the stuffing burst opens and coats ur taste buds with citrus flavour which is then balanced by the sweetness of chocolate. A perfect blend of flavour and combination.
7. Hazelnut & Almond
Who does not like chocolates with nuts? The smoothness of chocolate along with crunch of nuts is bang on like always.
8. Cookie Dough
Another stuffed chocolate which has a mixture of cookie in form of dough coated with thin layer of chocolate. The concept of cookie was well used by the chef.
1. Apple rosemary
Fruits used for this type of preserves are fresh and based on seasons. I was offered Apple rosemary flavor which had delicate flavour and delicious taste. Fresh apple puree along with the dash of rosemary worked out well for everyone. Flavor had a smooth consistency and it can be used as spread.
A place where you should order flavoured chocolates from if you like to experiment with combinations, Choc le would not disappoint you. A perfect place to order surprise gift for your loved ones. Thanks a lot Pooja Trehan Dhamecha and Rupali Samant owner of Choc Le for making my birthday memorable.
