Fabelle chocolate Launched Heart of Gold Collection
Pioneers of luxury chocolates in India, fabelle chocolate ITC Ltd.’s Fabelle exquisite chocolates launched their unique and inspiring Heart of Gold Collection. The collection is a first of its kind offering crafted with 24 karats of pure edible gold. The thoughtfully indulgent gold-infused chocolates have been co-curated by Fabelle’s master chocolatiers and Michelin star chef Marco Stabile.
Fabelle’s chocolate Heart of Gold Collection acknowledges the legendary feats achieved by select illustrious citizens and organisations. Eminent personalities such as Dr. Devi Shetty, Chairman and Executive Director of Narayana Health, Amla Ruia, Founder, Aakar Charitable Trust and Krishna Nagar, Gold Medallist, 2020 Summer Paralympics were honoured with the Fabelle Heart of Gold Title.
Renowned pan India for his medical prowess, it was Dr. Devi Shetty’s Karnataka’s COVID task force that helped the healthcare ecosystem in the state battle the pandemic efficiently. On her part, Ruia, the founder of Aakar Charitable Trust, has transformed close to 500 villages in Rajasthan using traditional water harvesting techniques and building check dams that positively impacted over 2 lakh villagers and their families.
Krishna Nagar, the 22-year old shuttler and winner of the Gold Medal at 2020 Summer Paralympics, is a shining inspiration for aspiring individuals to overcome their challenges and beat the odds.
The Heart of Gold Collection has been crafted and named after the virtues of these heroes, namely valour, knowledge, compassion, purity and persistence. It is the amalgamation of all these qualities that form a true Heart of Gold, now reimagined in the form of pralines with 24 karats edible gold.
The Valour praline represents the red of courage in the form of a ruby mousse filling along with crisps coated in 24 karat edible gold. The Knowledge praline showcases the enrichment of the mind in the form of an almond — hazelnut praline with rich dark mousse and 24k edible gold-coated crisps. The Compassion praline finds its expression in the soft notes of milk choco mousse paired with alphonso mango conserve and 24k edible gold-coated crisps. The Purity praline has been reimagined in a pristine white mousse with a hint of lemon and 24k edible gold coated crisps. Human’s enduring spirit shines through in a golden caramel filled hazelnut-almond praline with 24 karat gold coated crisps in the Persistence praline.
