CAFÉ 103 X AMEDEI Chocolates @ The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong


The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong introduces its first collaboration with Amedei, presenting a delectable Italian-themed afternoon tea at Café 103 from now until July 31. Amedei is dedicated to sourcing the most prized cocoa beans from around the world, including Madagascar, Venezuela, Jamaica, Ecuador, Trinidad, Grenada and many more.  Amedei chocolate is highly acclaimed for retaining the aromatic characters of the place it is sourced from. Executive Pastry Chef Richard Long of The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong sees a shared purpose between Amedei and Café 103’s famed chocolate afternoon tea. The Amedei afternoon tea features an enticing selection of sweet and savory treats inspired by Amedei’s most refined chocolate collection as well as its divine confections. Rich and delicate with fruity flavors of cherry, raspberry and redcurrant, Chuao chocolate gives the decadent chocolate scones a remarkably deep and complex flavor. Slathered with the additive Crema Toscana hazelnut and chocolate spread, the heavenly chocolate scone is a sweet indulgence in every bite. Playing with hints of honey, flowers and the velvety flavor of fresh milk, Toscano Milk Brown Chocolate makes Chuao Lavazza an irresistible mid-day pleasure. The cake features three distinct layers of Chuao chocolate chip, Lavazza coffee cream, as well as chocolate mousse, with each layer being a sweet surprise. The lemon curd is a perfect complement to the rich and flavorful chocolate foie gras mousse. The symphony of flavors takes the Swiss Roll with Chocolate Duck Foie Gras Mousse to a whole new level. Airy and creamy, the texture of the gluten-free Cremagelato lies between smoothie and soft-serve ice-cream. This signature product of Italian gelato brand Fabbri promises to end the pampering afternoon experience on a chilled and sweet cotton candy-like note. Price at HK$368 for one/HK$598 for two. For reservations, please contact +852 2263 2270 or via email restaurantreservation.hk@ritzcarlton.com
