If you are a regular reader of my blog, follow me on social media and see the pictures that I post, you will know how much I love chocolate. After I started writing about food, I’ve become more open towards experimenting with other flavors but there was a time when I would not even touch an ice cream or dessert if it did not have chocolate in it. One thing that I’ve always wanted in my city is a place where I can go and get good quality luxury chocolates, the kind of stuff that you get abroad. It took a long time to come but finally my wish has been granted. After a successful launch in Bengaluru at ITC Gardenia, ITC has introduced Kolkata to an inimitable chocolate experience with the launch of Fabelle Chocolates at an exclusive Fabelle Chocolate Boutique at ITC Sonar, Kolkata.
The mantra of Fabelle Chocolates is luxury and the entire Fabelle experience starting from the decor of the Chocolate Boutique to the exquisite chocolate creations that are available is truly magical. I was told that Fabelle Chocolates have been in the making for almost a decade with extensive research and innumerable trials in the pursuit to craft the finest luxury chocolates in India that rival the best in the world.
So what can you expect at the Fabelle Chocolate Boutique? Fabelle Elements – intricately crafted pralines inspired by the elements of nature and combined with rare ingredients such as acacia nectar, Madagascar vanilla, French sea salt, Lankan cinnamon, ancho chilli and many more, Fabelle Ganache – velvety soft cubes of exotic cocoas (both milk and dark) delicately churned with butter & fresh cream and Fabelle As You Like It – personalized chocolate cup creations offering myriad possibilities of fillings and toppings. In addition, you can also choose from a range of exquisitely crafted Fabelle desserts and cocoa beverages, created live by the Fabelle Master Chocolatiers.
If you love chocolate, the only thing I can say is that you need to visit the Fabelle Boutique at ITC Sonar ASAP! I’ve tasted plenty of luxury chocolates from across the world so believe me when I say that these rank right at the top. The quality is top class, the taste and presentation is exquisite and the pricing is quite reasonable. A box of 10 pralines will cost you Rs 750, a box of twenty cubes of Ganache is priced at Rs 675, single chocolate cups are for Rs 100, desserts are within the Rs 375-Rs 575 range and iced chocolate and warm cocoa beverages are in the Rs 325-Rs 425 range.
