Flight Of Fancy
In 1600, in the spirit of expansion, Queen Elizabeth I granted a Royal Charter to The East India Company. The company was sent East to explore. They returned with magical flavors that would change the West's palate forever. I feel like the Queen herself seated in front of a box of chocolate treasure packaged so artfully that it resembles an old tome that could belong to The Royal Collection itself. The confections inside feature flavors such as Creme Rose, Hazel Praline and Cafe Latte and reflect a heritage of quality and tradition along with a new found sense of adventure. My favorite among the truffles happens to be the Mimosa: cream, marc de champagne and orange essence. The taste is so right on it should be served in a flute!
