Celebrating 90 Years of Godiva Chocolatier
- Celebrating the Past, Crafting the Future -
Featuring eight of Godiva's most iconic chocolates – one from almost every decade – the collection is completed by the brand new ‘Egérie Noir' piece. Every precious chocolate tells its own unique tale; the ‘Lady Noir' (1926), lovingly recreates one of Pierre Draps' (Godiva's original Maître Chocolatier) earliest recipes, while the ‘Signature Lait' is a velvety coffee ganache, decorated with a feather and created for the movie ‘Gone With The Wind' in 1939. The rich milk chocolate encased liquid caramel ‘Ecusson' is an iconic one, it bears a lion rampant to mark Godiva's appointment to the Royal Court of Belgium in 1968. Other historical pieces include: the Coeur Blanc (1945), Noblesse (1959), Nippon (1972), Aztèque (1992) and Mousse Meringue (2015).
The ninth and final piece of the collection is the Egérie Noir (2016); a complex, contemporary creation of the smoothest raspberry ganache, delicately balanced with essence of rose petals, and encased in rich, dark Belgian chocolate. Created by one of Godiva's expert chocolatiers, Chef Jean Apostolou, both the filling and the shape of the shell are exciting new innovations – a testament to Godiva's pioneering flair for chocolates. The delicate rose and raspberry flavour is one that will play an exciting role in the chocolatier's 90th year.
