My Chocolatier experience : The Chocolate Story : Godiva @ Pavilion

I have always pass by this nice posh stall right at another wing of Pavilion. The cakes and chocolate always look so mouth watering and just didnt drop by and last 2 weekend, on early Saturday morning, I finally set foot to this outlet as I was invited to Godiva event : The Chocolate Story that we are all a chocolatier for a day that we can get our hands on to create our own chocolate.

How did Godiva came out and there is an interesting story behind it:

“” 80 years ago in Brussels, Godiva Chocolatier was founded at Belgium when master chocolatier Joseph Draps founded a chocolate company that was named in honor of the legend of Lady Godiva.

Why it was name after her as her husband Lord Leofric charge taxes and the civilians are suffering, at that mercy of people Lady Godiva appeal to the husband to abolish the taxes and in one condition the husband challenge her, that if she rode naked through the streets and the people of the city remained inside, the taxation on the poor would be lifted, as the day she rode on the streets, the people did close their shutters, as promised. Her action is how it was made to , become the brand of Godiva.

Before the whole class got kick of we were served with Macaroons and Long Black coffee to start off with, something new for my breakfast menu . .:p

Macaroons is good, with the crust just crack when you bite it, then after a few bites hits the middle is a bit chewy which is just nice.. I find a bit too sweet for me. . If it tone down a bit would have been perfect .

Godiva (7)

some Cheeze cakes to hit on, and I love the cheeze cake its cheezy, not too solid in texture, moist enough and with a bit crispy crust at the bottom is just perfect to go along with my coffee.

    I’m a chocoholic, and Godiva is one of the good chocolates available here in Malaysia. The other brand that I particularly love is Patchi 🙂
