Heart for Two

Enjoy the world’s most romantic dessert this Valentine’s Day

By LLM Reporters on 19th January 2017

This Valentine’s Day, discover 3 Michelin starred Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester’s exclusively created ‘Heart for Two’, a dessert designed by leading Pastry Chef Angelo Ercolano.

Made of two unique halves of chocolate and passion fruit, the dessert is the ultimate finale for any foodie couple.

The left-hand side of the heart is composed of a passion fruit cream which is piped between two layers of chocolate mousse, and glazed with dark chocolate.

The right-hand side of the heart is a tangy passion fruit sorbet dipped in chocolate and covered by a thin sheet of milk chocolate, on the edges of which a line of Chantilly cream is drawn.

The inner portion is then filled with a passion fruit jam, and is covered by another sheet of milk chocolate with a small heart-shaped cut-out.
