Pierre Marcolini Valentines Collection

When it comes to chocolate, I can honestly say that I am a choc-a-holic and just absolutely love it. So when the chance to experience the new Valentines range from expert chocolatier Pierre Marcolini I wasn't about to say no.  Pierre Marcolini established his luxury chocolate brand in Brussels in 1995 and it is renowned for its use of rare and exotic ingredients such as Sichuan pepper to Moroccan pink berries. 
The Valentines range has imagery which has been commissioned by Parisian illustrator Séverine Assous, to illustrate its cases in the theme of a romantic Provençale dance and it features mythical characters and fairy tale heroines which are just totally divine.

The Duo of hearts comes presented in an incredibly cute minimalist box which is dressed in a Collection case. Inside there is a duo of raspberry hearts which are just so beautifully packaged and would make such a lovely romantic gesture.

What you get are two hearts which are a dark chocolate ganache with a raspberry pulp and as soon as you open the box, the scent of chocolate is just mouthwateringly good. Priced at £4 you can find them here.

If chocolate isn't something you are a fan of but Macarons are more your thing then there is a gift for you too. Again the Macarons come presented inside an incredible luxe box which is dressed with a case adorned with those mythical characters and fairy tale heroines and if you do look closely enough you will see Little Red Riding Hood dancing with a wolf or throwing macarons and Snow White receiving a love letter from a beast.  Inside the beautifully presented box are 12 macarons which smell just absolutely incredible and look beautiful.

The macarons which are neatly packaged in rows feature an array of amazing flavours such as: 

  • Roasted pistachio from Iran with a hint of Maldon sea salt
  • Caramel, sweet butter and Maldon sea salt flakes
  • Blend of vanilla from Tahiti and Madagascar
  • Rose water from Morocco
  • Summer raspberry pulp and milk chocolate from Ecuador and Ghana
  • Buttercream praline with a crunchy centre of roasted and caramelised hazelnuts from Piedmont
  • Bergamot and lemon zest infusion
  • 78% Grand cru dark chocolate from Venezuela
  • Caramel and bitter chocolate ganache flavoured with vanilla from Tahiti
  • Java coffee infusion
  • Flakes of speculoos with cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and a hint of ginger
  • Passion fruit from Brazil
If you are a fan of macarons then you will love these. They are light and pack a punch when it comes to the flavour, in fact they taste just as you imagine them to from the descriptions given above. Like all good Macarons, they are chewy but so much that they stick to your teeth and they are the best I have ever tasted. Find them right here 

With a flagship store here on Marylebone High Street where you will find a bespoke chocolate counter, a macaroon carousel, a tasting area and a sweetie bar, I cannot wait to pop in the next time I am in the area, because having had a little taste of the brand, I now want to try more!
