Kerry Hotel is proud to announce the launch of its much anticipated Kerry Chokolate, an exclusive recipe of chocolate that has been developed by our in-house chefs with world-renowned chocolatier Valrhona. To celebrate, we have invited award-winning chef and chocolatier Monsieur Christophe Renou, the youngest confectionary M.O.F. from France, to design a one-off Kerry Chokolate Afternoon Tea set.
Developed by our Executive Chef Matthew Bennink and Executive Pastry Chef Julien Gourmelon, three different chocolates and toppings were added to complement the different varieties; the dark chocolate is finished with Pecan and Candy Orange, the milk chocolate with Caramelised Hazelnut and Apricot, and the white chocolate with Pistachio and Cranberry.
To mark this momentous occasion in our culinary history, Kerry Hotel has invited Chef and chocolatier Monsieur Christophe Renou to design an exclusive Afternoon Tea set to be served in the Lobby Lounge. Chef Christophe is an expert in his field, having been awarded the prestigious title of MOF (Un des Meilleurs Ouvriers de France – translating to ‘One of the Craftsmen of France’).
Chef Christophe’s exclusive Afternoon Tea draws upon his signature creations and innovative techniques that became the driving force behind winning the MOF title. ‘Le Roulé Fraisier’, the creation that he made during the MOF competition, is a fruit dessert that brings him back to his childhood with strawberries and almonds encased in a thin pastry crust. Paired with this, a ‘Tout en Choc’ using our exclusive Kerry Chokolate to make an indulgent chocolate torte, while ‘Merveilleux Framboise’, ‘Baba-Bool’ and ‘Verrine Dame Blanche’, are also featured on the new menu.
To make this a decadent Afternoon Tea to remember, Chef Julien has created a Shaved Kerry Hot Chokolate, featuring shavings of our three dark, milk and white Kerry Chokolate that will be loaded into the hot milk and finished with cream. A Kerry Mocha and Kerry Iced Chokolate will also be available.
Valrhona is proud to be part of this collaboration. Do not miss the chance to try this afternoon tea set which will be available until end of September.
