Godiva is giving new meaning to the all-important ‘sense of place’ with its latest collection.

The Wonderful City Dreams nine-piece and 18-piece collections honour the home cities of Godiva’s chef chocolatiers and will be showcased at the brand’s booth (823) at the inaugural Summit of the Americas in March.

To represent New York, chef Thierry Muret has chosen a slice of caramel cheesecake, while chef Philippe Daue has created a pure white chocolate ganache with lychee and roasted hazelnut nibs to represent Shanghai.

To denote Tokyo, chef Yannick Chevolleau created a complex caramel, orange and Yuzu milk chocolate ganache that is decorated it with an illustration of Japan’s iconic parliament building.

Iconic landmarks

Chef Jean Apostolou selected the iconic red double-decker bus as the decoration for his white chocolate piece filled with strawberry and violet ganache to represent London.

Godiva places a great deal of focus on creating unique packaging and has collaborated with Pénélope Bagieu, a renowned French illustrator and comic artist, for the Wonderful City Dreams gift box to create a colourful skyline of famous global landmarks.
