The Ramadan begins on Saturday June 28th, and for this special period of togetherness, we are introducing our 2014 Ramadan Collection - a compilation of lavishness at its finest. Composed of 3 luxurious mahogany-wood boxes filled with French master artisan chocolates, you will gratify friends, family and children with exquisite non-alcoholic and non-animal fat recipes exclusive to the south of France.
Our French chocolates contain NO alcohol and NO animal-fats of any sort and therefore abide by local priciples in Muslim countries.
Your recipient will find concealed under the lid of each box, the Arabic inscription: 'Ramadan Kareem' , which means: 'Happy Ramadan' - a special yearly attention for a holy month filled with blessings and prosperity.
To make sure you please both adults and children, each box is composed of our numbered chocolates and other specialty chocolates, including an all-time children's favorite: chocamandines! Presented in soft pouches, these almond based bonbons will gratify any kiddie's palate and unite the family in a shared chocolate gustation experience.
To handcraft the most beautiful chocolate gift box in the world, it was obvious that we needed a noble and rich material. Our first choice was mahogany-wood for its tight grain and beautiful red undertones. Today, we collaborate with one of the last two traditional woodworkers in France in the heart of the Jura region to deliver true handcrafted luxury boxes. It is therefore only natural that this luxurious wood fully inspired our Ramadan Collection.
The tradition of chocolate coated almonds dates back to the 17th century when a French King's mistress had the peculiar habit of adding almond powder to her hot chocolate. The combination of the 2 was later adopted by many chocolate artisans to reveal the perfect balance of crisp almonds and powdered cocoa. Here at zChocolat, our master chocolatier gently roasts Valencia almonds from Spain until their full, robust, nutty flavor is released. Each almond is then drenched in 40% Ivory Coast milk chocolate and rolled in a 70% Venezuelan dark chocolate coating and cocoa powder - resulting indeed in a true royal 'gourmandise'.
Pascal Caffet, rewarded with the best French artisan title and particularly renowned for his outstanding praliné, has created 26 exquisite recipes exclusively for zChocolat. Our combined expertise and experience has resulted in worldwide availability of the finest French chocolates in the world.
