For the love of chocolates.. Schokolart

New Folder (4)

Eventhough I prefer Godiva for their dark, creamy chocolates and truffles, I absolutely DIE for the chocolate artwork at Schokolart. They take creativity i.e. colors, shapes and flavours to new heights!

chocs

The handmade swiss chocolates are so mind-bogglingly delicate and beautiful in design that you don't want to eat them.. you just want to stare at them and keep taking pictures.

That's me, doing just that.

The ganache fillings I particularly like, as they are wonderful concoctions of flavours such as Wasabi-Raspberry, Earl-grey tea and even Sechuan Pepper! Unless you eat chocolates here everyday, it will take you an awful long time to get bored!

I'm a self-confessed chocoholic... I can even eat chocolate for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Still remember that when I was a teenager, I managed to telan a box of Coco Jelly, Cadbury in less than an hour... Whoops! That explain my plump size

CUMI & CIKI said...

qwazay monkay:
tis an optical illusion; kehkeh.. cumi took that shot.. gawd i luv my husband:P lol

genuiness said...

errr... Godiva??? Are you being serious? They use cheap chocolate and sell them at rip-off prices - you would be better off eating a Cadbury bar or Ferrero Roche! Just go to the supermarket and buy some Valrhona chocolate and make your own chocolates... (seriously I am really anti-Godiva - they are the Starbucks of chocolate).

p/s regarding the comment you left on my blog - I like to follow a blog for a while before I add them to my blogroll. Just being pedantic..

CUMI & CIKI said...

genuiness:
Wow! you sound like a true food and choc connaisseur. We were really impressed with your blog too :D
We love Valrhona! dats what we use in our Macaron baking class .. so smooth hor..;)

rainbow said...

wow! looks very delicious!

CUMI & CIKI said...

rainbow:
that's rite:D

Nic (KHKL) said...

the chocolate musta melted really fast that day. cos you looked hawt!

omg, another too-sweet-to-be-true from me! pass me the Chinese numbing pepper again (from your next post..hehe)

CUMI & CIKI said...

thank u nic! always the charmer :P

genuiness said...

I'm not necessarily an expert but I do eat out a lot. amazingly enough I don't like eating chocolate all that much - its the other half who is crazy about chocolate.

You are right! Valrhona is probably the best chocolate for cooking with (its flavour improve as you temper it) but not as good if you were to eat it on its own or make a sauce with it. For that, most chefs prefer either St. Etienne Weiss, Gianduja or Araguani chocolate. I personally prefer Etienne weiss as it has a more robuts flavour.

p/s was browsing through some of your older blogs and some of your writing is truly hilarious

fatboybakes said...

guffaw, oh dear, just saw a fellow commentor's comment. godiva is the starbucks of chocolate? hahahahah... aiyo, really ah? but i like wor. (but i dont like starbucks)
