Celebrate Chinese New Year With The Year of The Rooster Chocolate Art Collections

 

Wild Sweets® By Dominique & Cindy Duby Releases Limited Edition ‘Year of the Rooster’ Chocolate Art Collections for 2017 Chinese New Year Celebration!

It’s superb to live in a city where we have so many reasons to celebrate, and many friends from diverse cultures to celebrate alongside of. I missed out on my usual Ukrainian Christmas Celebration this year, and am entirely short on perogies and cabbage rolls, but I will not miss out on Chinese New Year! I’ve already been fortunate enough to attend a dim sum celebration (more on that soon) and now I’m going to spoil a few friends with something sweeter, the chocolate collections from DC Duby.

Year of The Rooster Chocolate Art Collections

Quality chocolates, made with natural ingredients, are pretty much health food, don’t you think? It’s worth a little splurge on calories for these though as the 2017 Limited Edition Chocolate Art ‘Year of the Rooster’ Gift Collections are absolutely gorgeous and full of beautiful flavours. The first set, the ‘Year of the Rooster’ Chocolate Art Collection features a soft ganache made with different fruit-based liquid caramels. They are beautifully hand-painted with cocoa butter colours scheme in different artistic patterns. The Wild Sweets® ‘Year of the Rooster’ Collection is sold in gift boxes of 12-units and features the following assortment of flavours:

Year of The Rooster Chocolate Art Collections

  • Chestnut Vanilla Bean Caramel Ganache & Organic roasted chestnuts
  • Pomelo Fruit Caramel Ganache & Ginger Lemon Honey Nut Cream
  • Apricot Vanilla Bean Caramel Ganache & Cubed Sticky Rice Cake
  • Kumquat Orange Caramel Ganache & Citrus Honey Nut Cream

Year of The Rooster Chocolate Art Collections

The other collection is even more special (well I think so). The Wild Sweets® ‘Year of the Rooster’ Chocolate Art ‘Bouchée’ Series is reminiscent of a cake for its symbolism of ‘rising fortune’ and features 3 textural elements including; a ‘dough’ component in the form of a buttery French ‘Sablé Breton’ cookie, a baked caramel nut jam made with different nuts & seeds, and a soft ganache made with fruit-based liquid caramels. The Bouchées are enrobed in chocolate and decorated with a disc of almond paste ‘printed’ with a rooster head design and hand-painted with ‘sparkling’ cocoa butter colours. The Wild Sweets® ‘Year of the Rooster’ Bouchée Series is sold in gift box sleeves of 4-units and features the following assortment of flavours:

Year of The Rooster Chocolate Art Collections

  • Lychee Longan Caramel Ganache, Sablé cookie & Black Sesame Nut Jam
  • Mandarin Orange Caramel Ganache,  Sablé cookie & Coconut Nut Jam
  • Peach Persimmon Caramel Ganache, Sablé cookie & Almond Nut Jam
  • Mango Green Tea Caramel Ganache, Sablé cookie & Peanut Nut Jam

I am currently trying not to devour these before I meet up with my friends to share them. I advise you buy a set for yourself too.

Gifts for Food Lovers

If you’ve got some foodie friends in your life, you are lucky.  They know all the great restaurants, follow all the latest food trends and make killer food when you are invited by (even better if you live with one).  This year why not reward the foodie in your life with some new kitchen gadgets?  After all, it’s to your benefit,as they are likely to show their appreciation by sharing the results with you.

2010 was a year of comfort food, where sandwich’s took center stage, so why not a Panini Grill for sandwich nights at home.  The Breville Panini Grill Quattro is also versatile enough to open up to cook eggs and pancakes.  Some great Panini suggestions in the new DC Duby Panini cookbook.

Tea replaced coffee for many this year and a kettle that can boil water for coffee at home or heat to 176 F, the perfect temperature for green tea, is a must.  The DeLonghi kettle makes serving easy with a detachable base, and wide pouring spout.  The kettle shuts off when water is too low – safety first.

 

Slow food and convenience are brought together with this kitchen must, the updated and sleek looking slow cooker from Cuisinart.  Start the morning with oatmeal, make soup for lunch or start short ribs in the morning for an easy weeknight dinner.  Throw is a cookbook such as Eric Akis’ Everyone Can Cook Slow Cooker Meals.

Perrier is so passe once you’ve tried the Soda Stream home soda system.  Environmentally friendly and cost effective, this gadget creates flavour from your tapwater.  Add some of their flavours to create pop at home, or add a splash of your own and create a new sensation.

This time-honored recipe—made from deeply roasted and golden caramelized nuts or seeds—makes an extravagant confectionary filling. Our praline butters are impeccably scented to create a multisensory mélange of ‘new classic’ flavors, voluptuous aromas and delectable textures based on the series theme.

Wild Sweets cocoArt teXtuRe® collections are inspired by classic recipes that ‘crack, pop and crunch’. The praline butter filling is scented with alluring and exotic spice blends and studded with honey caramelized nuts or seeds, plump dried fruits or candied citrus peels. The teXtuRe series includes 2 different collections of 4 chocolates each and features chocolates flavors such as Espresso walnut praline with honey caramel pecans and mango or Ginger macadamia praline with honey caramel macadamia and banana chips, to name but a few.

Wild Sweets cocoArt arÔme ® collection are inspired by a classification system used in the science and art of perfumery. The praline butter filling is scented with enchanting oil infusions and studded with luscious sun-ripened fruit jellies (pâte de fruit). The arÔme series includes 2 different collections of 4 chocolates each and features chocolates flavors such as Fruit: coconut praline scented with pineapple grapeseed oil infusion and pineapple jelly or Citrus: sunflower praline scented with citrus zest sunflower oil infusion and grapefruit jelly, again, to name but a few.

Of course, such exquisite edible jewels deserve equally luxurious packaging.
