A spectacle for the senses, the celebrated window displays will also be dressed creatively with a chocolate haze, with chocolate sculptures as the centrepiece. During Chocolate Week itself, The Café will be unveiling an exclusive new partnership.Classic chocolate tart Highlights from the light menu include Celtic scallop ceviche, with orange and cocoa nibs, carpaccio of venison, chocolate marshmallows and parmesan and Cocoa Chipotle salsa and crispy fajitas; each dish being a nod to chocolate. For the sweet tooth, Executive Pastry Chef Andrew Blas and his team have turned their attention to chocolate and have created exclusive treats especially for Chocolate Week, including three new flavours of macaroons: Chocolate and Orange, Milky Bar and Baylands Bahibe, using Valrhona’s intense sweet chocolate.
