Last week I was invited to join an Exclusive Chocolate Tasting Session at Phoenix Residences. I was joined with other local bloggers, journalists and photographers to enjoy the feast of some highly unique, hand-crafted chocolates.
Phoenix Residences organized this chocolate tasting session by celebrated Mumbai-based philanthropist, entrepreneur and master chocolatier Zeba Kohli at their elite residential complex, Phoenix Kessaku.
Kessaku is considered among the finest residential complexes in India with homes starting at INR 12 Crores.
The tasting menu at the event included exclusive pieces that were handcrafted especially for the guests at the Phoenix Club One and came in various unique and bespoke flavor combinations using only the finest available ingredient.
Chocolates were Complex and Sophisticated – Revolutionary!
Guests were offered mouth-watering 100% dark dates, 70% dark, 53% dark, single-origin, organic dark and milk, surprise chocolate- Sambar, melted coffee chocolate, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and black sesame seed chocolate, French hazelnut, mint flakes and orange, white flakes.
Blindfold Chocolate Tasting Session!
I was lucky enough to try different chocolates, and each tasted blind. It means we weren’t told what we were eating until after we’d eaten it, and it was interesting to see all the different opinions the room gave before we’d be told the answer. Honestly, I was surprised, and it was a unique experience.
Chocolate is not for Chewing! Chocolates are beautiful all over the world, and I love to enjoy chocolates in its entirety from whichever place they are made.
Zeba Kohli on the Event! “I know the promoters of Phoenix Kessaku, and I appreciate their principles and their commitment towards their clients”, says Zeba. “We, at Fantasie, share similar ideals and are equally committed to satisfying our consumers. We have curated short and fun chocolate experiences for the discerning Bengalorians for the event.”
Arshia Ladak, Director, Phoenix Kessaku says “Phoenix Kessaku has always been about curated experiences and the art of the finer nuances of life, what better way to validate the same than to collaborate with Fantasie, Zeba Kohli’s exciting Chocolate brand for the fine art of chocolate through the chocolate tasting and appreciation session. At Phoenix Kessaku, we don’t just believe in selling a home, we also believe in creating experiences that one can cherish and today, we have created one such special experience for our clients.”
Phoenix Kessaku comes in the wake of the unparalleled success of Phoenix One Bangalore West. Phoenix Kessaku, is an exemplification of the idea of simplicity in complexity, allowing subtle and complex details, textures to existing in a balance of beauty and purpose.
