To welcome 2016, the Year of the Monkey according to the Chinese horoscope, Jean-Paul Hévin presents a limited collection of premium artisan chocolates in Hong Kong, from gold ingots to a personalized bonbon, symbolizing health, wealth, and good fortune.
The gold ingots are in a creamy praline of Spanish almonds and hazelnuts from Piedmont in Italy, coated with milk chocolate and which can be purchased individually or integrated into a “Red Packet”, a box of five pieces that can be customized to individual taste with any combination of his treats such as Mendiants, Orangettes, Pearls, Almonds, and Palets.
For those who want a year of wealth, Hévin has created a limited edition bonbon, filled with dark chocolate ganache and kumquat puree of the season’s favorite fruit, coated with dark chocolate, and adorned with gold glitter.
The celebrated chocolatier also adds a festive twist to his trademark macaroons, voted “Best Macaroon in Paris”, with bi-colored yellow and brown Macaroon Kumquat of milk chocolate ganache and kumquat puree. And for a surprising gift, the Boîte Fortune, a gift box with selections from the collection which are packaged with a symbolic fish design, and which is an indispensable component of Chinese New Year dinner celebrations.
