What tasty sensations are most recognized globally? Chocolate and Cocktails.
Eyes roll in ecstasy for people world-wide when you bring up chocolate. It is a delicacy, a lotion, a bath, a candy, a cake … my list is infinite and I am grateful! Imagine a four-course prix fixe menu. Each menu carefully prepared with chocolate. Porcini Mushroom, Duck Confit and Coconib dusted Bass. Now imagine Chateau Langlois Brut, 2007 Pinot Noir and 2007 Reisling. To top your evening off is station after station of chocolate. Some of the highlights include items like the Opera Cake, White Hot Chocolate Infused with Lavender covering pineapples (or strawberries) and the outstanding Chocolate Tart Vanilla Sable Breton.
Executive Chef Kai Lermen and Executive Pastry Chef Celine Plano of The Peninsula Chicago dazzle with their exquisite eye for detail and gentle sedation of the palate.
This is one chocolatey infusion not to be missed. Be sure to experience “Chocolate at the Pen” coupled with “Jazz at the Pen”.
Also be sure to check the “I Love Chocolate” campaign run by Sofitel.com. Their “choclate” infused stay At the Water Tower Locale 20 East Chestnut and access to Le Bar are sure to intrigue!
After dinner and dancing, drinks are always fun at The Signature Lounge on the 96th . Such specialty drinks as the Raspberry White Chocolate Russian or the Peppermint Cocoa will certainly send you to sweet dreams.
