Caviar and Chocolate, an association from Petrossian and La Maison Du Chocolat

Please note that the meal was complimentary. However, the opinions expressed in my blog are 100% my own!

Caviar, chocolate and champagne: aren't these three names synonymous of a luxurious meal? That is what was on the menu of an event hosted by Petrossian, in association with La Maison Du Chocolat, in the presence of Alexandre Petrossian, from the famous caviar purveyor family, and Nicolas Cloiseau, the Chef behind the incredible creations of the chocolatier.

In this stunning setting, I have not only enjoyed some delicious amuse bouche from Petrossian's Executive Chef Richard Farnabe, but also the result of the collaboration of these two famous establishments. 

Here is what I tried:

Vodka caviar marshmallow (Petrossian):

Macarons from La Maison Du Chocolat (the white one was made with praline that is one of my favorite flavors):

And then, I could try their extravagant trio: caviar, vodka and chocolate, that you can also taste in a limited edition called Chocolate Vodka & Caviar, featuring two different kinds of chocolates:

The Vodka and dark ganache chocolate: for this, Chef Cloiseau used Petrossian 's premium vodka and made a ganache with it. When eating it, you get first a crisp flavor, and then feel the warmth of the vodka.

The second chocolate was a dark ganache caviar. For this one, Chef Cloiseau used Ossetra caviar for its nutty and buttery flavor. He paired it with the nuttiness of the praline and, on top, put a caviar ganache that gave a taste of the sea.

Then, Chef Cloiseau made an exclusive treat for the evening: a macaron with caviar ganache topped with a green apple whipped cream and caviar.

And as I mentioned at the beginning of the post, there was champagne...And not just one bottle, trust me!

This was a great event and I was really please to meet Chef Cloiseau and hear Alexandre Petrossian talk about the collaboration between Petrossian and La Maison du chocolat. Pairing chocolate and caviar is a very creative idea and it works! Bien joué, Messieurs!

Enjoy (I did)!
