Chocolate and Caviar and Vodka… Oh My!

Chocolate and Caviar and Vodka… Oh My!

On their own, La Maison du Chocolat and Petrossian offer decadent edibles to delight those who seek luxurious chocolates, caviar and vodka. But with their powers combined, these two maisons have made something delicious that will be available this fall.

Nicolas Cloiseau, Master Chef of La Maison du Chocolat, in collaboration with Armen Petrossian, President and CEO Maison Petrossian, has crafted chocolates that offer the added indulgence of subtly salty Petrossian Caviar and the crispness of Petrossian’s Premium Vodka.

In October 2016, La Maison du Chocolat and Petrossian will release a limited edition Chocolate Vodka & Caviar Gift Box, featuring two chocolates with bold flavor profiles. The gift box comes in one size only and features 20 pieces of chocolate—10 each of the Vodka Dark Ganache and Caviar Dark Ganache.

I recently attended an event where the other guests and I were able to try the chocolates for ourselves.

I’ve had chocolates made with liquor before, but there was an added elegance to the Vodka Dark Ganache that I really appreciated. Besides looking classy—a neat little dark chocolate rectangle with a slim strip of white near the edge—it tasted incredible. The vodka was present, but did not overpower the dark chocolate taste, and added just a hint of warmth across my palate.

The Caviar Dark Ganache was the same size and shape as its vodka counterpart, but was decorated with a tiny black button in a corner, instead of the white stripe. The dark chocolate ganache is accented with a hazelnut and almond praline blended with the caviar. The middle of the chocolate has a buttery smooth texture with the faintest notes of salt. It’s not as strong of a salt taste as, say, salted caramel, but this muted flavor pairs so well with the chocolate.

These luxury chocolate gift boxes will be sold for $59.00 at La Maison du Chocolat and Petrossian boutiques, as well as online at lamaisonduchocolat.us
