Truffles & Torches with Duff Goldman & GODIVA
GODIVA hosted an exclusive event last Thursday at The Kitchen NYC featuring Ace of Cakes’ Duff Goldman and GODIVA’s Executive Chef Thierry Muret to celebrate the launch of GODIVA’s first ever celebrity chef collaboration, the Cake Truffles Collection. The collection, which was over a year in the making, was inspired by Duff’s favorite cake flavors from Charm City Cakes and is now available at GODIVA boutiques nationwide.
Jim Goldman, CEO of Godiva welcomed guests to ‘the kitchen’ where we decorated cakes and Godiva truffles using all of Duff Goldman’s cake decorating supplies and confectionaries.
Godiva’s Executive Chef Thierry Muret gave us lessons on how to properly temper chocolate and how to use the utensils to perfectly coat a truffle and how to paint them. Duff was walking around judging cakes and dusting edible glitter – his favorite toy in the bunch – on all the truffles and cake, at one point.
It was a true luxury to be able to experience the new, delicious collection that Godiva is currently offering side by side with the ‘imagineers’ of the truffles. Duff went into detail on the creation and dedication that went into these flavors and recommended to look out for all the different flavor notes that each ‘cake’ truffle offers – suggested letting it sit on your tongue for a few seconds to really indulge in the different flavors.
The truffles are pure chocolate – nothing cake about them but the flavor – making this an amazing experience for your taste buds to linger and treat yourself to.
The event also served Godiva cocktails; GODIVA Chocolate Martini and a GODIVA Pom-Martini that was made with GODIVA Raspberry Liqueur.
It was one sweet event!
