Vivek Singh, Executive Chef of The Cinnamon Club, has teamed up with Chocolatier extraordinaire Paul A Young to celebrate this year’s Chocolate Week (10th – 16th October). Combining Paul’s chocolate alchemy with Vivek’s spice expertise, the pair have crafted three captivating truffles and an indulgent pudding.
Representing a starter, main and dessert, the three unique truffles will take you on a cocoa taste adventure to remember. First is a sticky sweet Lime Pickle Caramel with single origin 64% Madagascan dark chocolate, sea salted caramel, The Cinnamon Club’s lime pickle and a gold leaf flourish. The second is an intriguing Cumin & Almond filled chocolate with fragrant bitter 66% Grand Cru dark chocolate, with sweet almond puree, cumin, coriander seed and coated with toasted naan crumbs. The final course of Paan Truffle reflects the paan leaves eaten at the end of traditional Indian meals. Paul and Vivek’s take elegantly blends paan, tobacco, rose petal preserve, condensed milk, peppermint and white chocolate with delicate rose petals on the top. Diners can also indulge in a limited edition dessert of dark chocolate paan and caramel muri bar served with carrot halwa and clove ice cream (£16).
Available at The Cinnamon Club from 10th – 30th October, guests who order the exclusive Chocolate Week dessert will also be treated to the three Paul A Young truffles to continue their sweet journey at home. The inspired chocolates will also be gifted to guests ordering The Cinnamon Club’s exquisite tasting menu. Visitors to Paul’s treasure-trove shops across London can also purchase the three chocolates for £5.50.
Join Vivek and Paul at The Chocolate Show on the 14th of October at 5pm for a collaborative demonstration. The incredible show brings together the greatest chocolatiers, chefs and pastry chefs from all over the world, giving chocoholics the chance to lose themselves in exceptional chocolate creations and watch live demonstrations.
