Memphis-based designer chocolatier, Chef Phillip Ashley unveiled his latest creation, called the Heart of Le Bonheur today. The designer chocolate was launched at a reception and hands on, personalized chocolate workshop for Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital patients. The Heart of Le Bonheur chocolates are sold in six piece gift boxes for $14.79 with $4 from every box sold to be donated to the Le Bonheur Heart Institute.
“We appreciate Phillip’s support of Le Bonheur and our community as a whole,” said Le Bonheur President and CEO Meri Armour, MSN/MBA. “He is an outstanding success story and a wonderful example of talented people giving back to their communities. We are so pleased to have his support for our Heart Institute.”
The Heart of Le Bonheur chocolate is heart-shaped with Le Bonheur’s famous stitched heart image atop the chocolate. The chocolate is flavored with orange marmalade, tarragon and honey, all of which have a history as being used in medicine or for healing practices. The stitched heart symbolizes the founding of the hospital in 1952, by Le Bonheur Club, a group of women who saw the need for Memphis to have a hospital just for children. The Heart of Le Bonheur chocolate can be purchased online at http://phillipashleychocolates.com/product/heart-of-le-bonheur/ or at Phillip Ashley Chocolates at 798 South Cooper Street in Memphis.
“I created the Heart of Le Bonheur to benefit and commemorate the great work Le Bonheur does on a daily basis to make a difference in their patient’s lives and in our community,” said Chef Phillip Ashley. “The Le Bonheur Heart Institute is especially close to me as my mother was also treated for a congenital heart defect.”
