Covington, WA (PRWEB) November 9, 2005
Harmony Sweets, a gourmet chocolate and confectionary store, is now the exclusive American distributor of DeLafée, a Swiss chocolate made with 24-karat edible gold leaf.
“DeLafée Pralines are really a one-of-a-kind luxury confectionary -- a delicious concoction of cocoa and gold leaf,” says Jane S. Roseen, Owner and President of Harmony Sweets. “It is entirely appropriate that Harmony Sweets, a confectioner with products from all over the globe, is the exclusive American distributor of DeLafée.”
Edible gold leaf is a delicacy in many cultures. In India, people eat over 12 metric tons of gold per year, and gold leaf is used to decorate pastries, which the wealthy offer as gifts for special celebrations like weddings or holidays. In France and Italy, the best chefs use gold leaf to decorate their most refined dishes. In Japan, gold leaf is mixed with sake on New Year’s Eve to bring good luck and prosperity for the coming year.
DeLafée Pralines, with 24K edible gold, are decadent and luscious. The taste experience begins with very rich chocolate tones, balanced perfectly between bitter and sweet. Next is the rich, smooth creaminess of the ganache to prolong the taste of chocolate. The gold is an unusual and exotic taste, metallic, but not thin and tin-like. The taste transitions from the ganache to the gold with a real richness that lingers far after the chocolate leaves.
“DeLafée Pralines are a truly unique taste experience,” says Roseen. “Even within our diverse and high-quality array of confectionary, they will be one of our most gourmet products.”
