There are always launch events that I can’t go to due to the day job, some of them I don’t miss so much – although more and more the events themselves are amazing and in great venues which makes it a real shame to miss out.
One such example was the opening of renowned international luxury chocolatier La Maison du Chocolat at The Dubai Mall last month (I know…I’m a bit blogging this one). The first boutique in the Middle East offers handmade artisan chocolates in a café setting – in the Fashion Avenue area of the mall.
“We are proud to be bringing our values of excellence, creativity and luxury to the Middle East and to enter the market with this prestigious boutique. Our chocolates offer not only exceptional taste and the best ingredients, but are the pure embodiment of Parisian art-de-vivre,” said Geoffrey D’Anglejan, Managing Director, La Maison du Chocolat.
La Maison du Chocolat was founded in 1977 by visionary Robert Linxe and has crafted incredible chocolate creations of unique taste in its famous Parisian atelier ever since.
The brand carries on the tradition of its grand classics and each season, crafts new chocolate collections, showing that the art of chocolate is ever-evolving. Nicolas Cloiseau, Master Chef of La Maison du Chocolat, maintains a signature taste throughout his work, from the delicate chocolate covering, to the sumptuous ganache, following through to the chocolate pastries.
“With the introduction of La Maison du Chocolat, we are bringing a taste of French luxury lifestyle to the region. It is a certain lifestyle that the Maison offers, and is a perfect reflection of the dreamlike universe of delicate artistic creations; La Maison du Chocolat is an overall experience unlike no other,” added Wissam Al Mana, Executive Director of Ikram Group, La Maison du Chocolat’s partner in the Middle East.
Time to head down to The Dubai Mall me thinks…
