A Land of Ultra-modern Luxury
Located on its own small peninsula extending from the Arabian Peninsula, Qatar is a land of contrasting extremes. Only 90 km wide at its broadest, the country is comprised of arid desert surrounded by breathtaking beaches and shoreline. And while Qatar has deep cultural roots extending back to the start of human civilization itself, its capital city is the epitome of modernization. In fact, few places capture the spirit of contemporary luxury more than Doma. Futuristic skyscrapers feature bold, avant-garde architecture, while the city’s many hotels and shopping centers bring together the world’s most stylish products and experiences. Intriguing extravagances abound, making Qatar an exciting destination for those living in the GCC and beyond. And as both local and visiting consumers continue to seek out the best luxury goods, high quality European chocolates have become an increasingly popular purchase. In fact, Qatar brings in nearly 4000 tons of chocolate annually, making it one the country’s top commodity imports a trend that is only expected to increase as the Middle East falls ever more in love with chocolate.
In Qatar, gift-giving is an important way of expressing appreciation and respect. Whatever the occasion, the giver traditionally seeks out the highest quality item he or she is able to afford in order to honor the recipient and avoid any appearance of selfishness. zChocolat’s
simplifies this process with the indisputable epitome of opulence. While each zChocolat creation already features the finest ingredients from around the world, this collection takes luxury chocolates to the next level by wrapping individual pieces in edible 24 karat gold leaf. The result of painstaking precision, each piece of food-grade gold leaf is hand applied to create a gift that is almost too beautiful to eat. Sophisticated packaging further underscores the elegance of the collection, with each product arriving in a dark mahogany wood box that would feel equally at home in a jeweler’s showcase. Sure to be treasured long after the chocolates themselves are mere memories, it’s an overall stunning way to pamper someone special.
Halal Chocolates for Ramadan
Similar to other predominantly Muslim countries located in the Middle East, the month long observance of Ramadan is a high point of the Qatari calendar. Food plays a critical role during Ramadan, with most people fasting during the day and sharing in group meals known as Iftar after sunset. Eid al-Fitr, the celebration marking the end of Ramadan, also typically features festive meals shared with family and friends. Because all zChocolat recipes are naturally animal fat-free and alcohol-free they meet the strict dietary standards necessary to be considered halal and are a sought-after solution for many people looking to send gourmet gifts to Qatar. The Ramadan Collection, featuring Master Chocolatier Pascal Caffet’s most requested flavors in limited-edition seasonal packaging, is a particularly festive option for anyone seeking to share the very best of fine French chocolate during this special time of year. Whether looking for something suitable for individual gifts, a small indulgence for Iftar, or a box big enough to share at a large Eid al-Fitr buffet, zChocolat simplifies Ramadan gifting while delivering unparalleled French savoir faire.
Traditional meals in Qatar are a delightful blend of Middle Eastern, African, and Asian flavors. Machbus, the country’s national dish, involves a mixture of rice, meats, and vegetables, prepared with a distinctive blend of sweet and savory spices. Seafood, hummus, and arabic coffee are other regional favorites. But where Qatar really shines is on the dessert menu. From cheesecake-like esh asharaya topped with cream and nuts to flaky bakhlava oozing with honey, many of the country’s most beloved desserts feature complex flavors and intriguing textures. Recipes like
zChocolat’s No. 8, which combines Piedmont hazelnuts, phyllo dough, and Kenyan coffee and the No. 19 with its walnut praline, phyllo dough, and Valencia almonds have found particularly dedicated followings in the area as they artfully combine the slightly crunchy feel of traditional regional desserts with luxurious single origin cocoas and masterful French techniques.
All our chocolates are handmade by our chocolate master Pascal Caffet, World Champion Chocolatier, with zealous adherence to French tradition: no alcohol, no preservatives, no coloring, high cocoa content, low sugar and 100% pure cocoa butter.
No matter where your recipient lives, our unique temperature sensitive packaging and rapid DHL Express delivery mean connoisseurs of zChocolat’s all-natural, preservative-free confections can enjoy French chocolate anywhere in the world. Insulated delivery boxes keep your gift at the perfect temperature while a reflective outer layer provides additional protection.
