Eat Like Royalty with the Queen of England's Favorite Chocolate
Today on The Daily Meal
Recipe of the day
In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, we’ll come out and say it — we’re chocoholics. In fact, it doesn’t even need to be the biggest chocolate-infused holiday for us to admit that; chocolate is just that good.
But although we stand by our beloved brands like Godiva, Jacques Torres, and Neuhaus, it must say something about your brand when it’s dubbed a royal favorite. Such is the case with Prestat, the London-based brand that has scored fans here and across the pond — even Her Majesty, the Queen of England.
Though the truffles, chocolates, and pralines are available in select retailers across the U.S., they’re being showcased in a one-stop pop-up shop at New York City's Fifth Avenue icon, Henri Bendel.
When we stopped in to sample the fare and meet Nick Crean, Prestat’s co-owner, we were stunned by not only the gorgeous jewel-colored packaging, but by a little fun fact — Prestat sells heart-shaped boxes all year round.
Why? Simply because the box (and what’s inside) makes a serious statement, not to mention a great gift for those situations when you need to impress — or smooth things over with — your special someone.
Our personal favorites are definitely the salted caramel truffles as well as the brand’s big hit, champagne truffles.
The Henri Bendel pop-up shop is open through Valentine’s Day, but these sweet treats can be found at a few retailers year-round in the U.S. — see where here.
