Fabelle Exquisite Chocolates, the home-grown luxury chocolate brand from ITC, has revealed its most expensive chocolate listed under Guinness World Records with the launch of its limited edition Fabelle Trinity – Truffles Extraordinaire. The chocolate was unveiled at an event in ITC Grand Central Mumbai, in the presence of the legendary, Michelin Star Chef Philippe Conticini – who is credited for numerous innovations over the last three decades and is the co-curator of Fabelle’s Trinity – Truffles Extraordinaire. This range brings alive the cycle of life represented by the Creator, Nurturer and Destroyer in a box of unique handcrafted truffles, each representing a concept.
The limited edition offering will be encased in a unique, hand-made wooden box, each containing 15 truffles, each weighing approximately 15 gms. The made-to-order box will be available at an indulgent price of
Rs 1, 00,000 (inclusive of taxes).
The Trinity – Truffles Extraordinaire range that represents the Creator, Nurturer and Destroyer is co-curated by Chef Conticini and Fabelle’s Master Chocolatiers using some of the rarest ingredients and finest single origin cacaos in the world. Consumers and chocolate connoisseurs in India will experience Fabelle’s signature multi-sensorial and multi- textural experience through this trio of truffles, each of which are an expression of a hero ingredient representing the cycle of life. Like the coconut which symbolises the beginning in Creator, the rare Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee in Nurturer or the Grand Cru dark chocolate in Destroyer, each master piece unfolds a mystical story for the Indian consumers to experience.
The launch of the Trinity – Truffles Extraordinaire series is a testament of the brand’s commitment in offering Indian consumers undisputedly extra ordinary chocolate experiences. Two chocolate experts, one a globally celebrated chef and the other an Indian chocolate expert have come together to create this experience. Fabelle’s state-of-the-art manufacturing expertise, single origin cocoa expertise, craftsmanship of its Master Chocolatiers and in-depth understanding of the Indian chocolate consumer combined with Chef Philippe Conticini’s global understanding and experience in creating unique experiences for global consumers over three decades have come together to create this.
