Chocolates para Kate y Guillermo – EL UNIVERSO

 

 

En la zona de Belgravia, al lado sur de Hyde Park, una afamada chocolatería, esencialmente británica, ha trabajado en una idea que fusiona lo artístico con el paladar. Chantal Codey, una artista de textiles fundó en 1983 una de las más respectadas chocolaterías inglesas. Su visión atenta y apetitoso gusto la llevaron a crear Rococo Chocolates, hoy un legado de la sociedad inglesa.

En esas calles empedradas de acogedoras tiendas y casas pintorescas en Motcomb Street descubrimos una colección de chocolates inventada para celebrar el acontecimiento.

“Nos inspiramos en ese momento especial en África donde William propuso matrimonio a Kate para crear esta caja de chocolates”, explica Chantal. Y continúa: “Nos gustaría imaginar que se despertaron con el alba y se subieron a un pequeño biplano a disfrutar de una aventura lejos del ojo humano y de los lentes fotográficos. Guillermo llevó a Kate hacia la frontera con Tanzania para admirar el amanecer sobre el nevado del Kilimanjaro, antes de recluirse en el valle de Kenia donde solo los elefantes y bestias salvajes podían verlos. Después caminaron por un sendero hasta que llegaron a una montaña rocosa, y desde allí admiraron las grandes llanuras. Y mientras Kate miraba el paisaje, Guillermo hurgó en su mochila por algo. Ella pensó que él estaba sacando los bocadillos para el lunch, pero no pudo sentirse más sorprendida cuando extrajo de ella una pequeña caja”.

Es conocido que el príncipe Guillermo ha tenido un largo romance con África y por eso Chantal Coady quiso festejar el matrimonio real pintando una caja de chocolates, de edición limitada, que refleja esta historia. “Por cada caja de chocolate que vendamos donaremos una cantidad a la organización Build Africa. Los beneficiarios serán los habitantes de Kenia y Uganda. No queremos vestirlos o alimentarlos, sino educarlos y permitirles una vida mejor”, explica.

    In the area of ​​Belgravia, south side of Hyde Park, a famous chocolate, mainly British, has worked on an idea that combines the artistic with the palate. Chantal Codey, a textile artist in 1983 founded one of the most respected British chocolate. His vision attentive and appetizing taste led her to create Rococo Chocolates, today a legacy of British society.

    In welcoming these cobblestone streets of quaint shops and houses Motcomb Street discovered a collection of chocolates invented to celebrate the event.

    “We were inspired by that special moment in Africa, where William proposed marriage to Kate to create this box of chocolates, ” says Chantal. He continues: “We would imagine that they were awakened at dawn and boarded a small biplane to enjoy an adventure away from the human eye and photographic lenses. William took Kate to the border with Tanzania to admire the sunrise over the snow capped Kilimanjaro, before being locked in the Valley of Kenya where only elephants and wild beasts could see them. Then they walked along a path until they reached a rocky mountain, and from there admired the great plains. And while Kate looked at the landscape, William reached into his backpack for something. She thought he was making sandwiches for lunch, but could not be more surprised when she took out a small box. ”

    It is known that Prince William has had a long affair with Africa and why Chantal Coady wanted to celebrate the royal marriage by painting a box of chocolates, limited edition, which reflects this history. “For every box of chocolate we sell we will donate an amount to the organization Build Africa. The beneficiaries are the people of Kenya and Uganda. Do not want to dress or feed them, but educate and enable a better life, “he explains.

    Needed to dig out the old Uni Collins dictionary for the odd word but here’s an alternative to the gobbledegoogle translation of the Spanish…

    “In the Belgravia area of London, on the southern side of Hyde Park, a famous, quintessentially British chocolate shop has been working on an idea that combines something for both the visual and the gustatory palate. Chantal Coady, a textile artist, started one of the most respected English chocolate shops in 1983. Her eye for detail and attractive style led her to create Rococo Chocolates which has become part of the English establishment.

    In these cobbled streets of friendly shops and colourful houses, we discovered in Motcomb Street a collection of chocolates created to celebrate the event.

    “We were inspired to create this box of chocolates by that special moment in Africa when William proposed to Kate,” explains Chantal. And she continues, ”We like to imagine that they woke with the dawn and set off in a small biplane to have an adventure far away from prying eyes and telephoto lenses. William flew Kate towards the Tanzanian border to catch the first light on the snow of Kilimanjaro, before landing in the Kenyan Rift Valley where only elephants and other wild beasts could see them. They then walked up a path till they arrived at a rocky mountain, and from there they took in the immense plain. While Kate was captivated with the landscape, William felt in his bag for something. She thought he must be looking for their lunch [or maybe a nice chocolate bar!], but couldn’t have been more surprised when he took out a little box…”

    It is well known that Prince William has had a life-long love for Africa and that is why Chantal wanted to celebrate the royal marriage by doing a painting for a limited edition box of chocolates, which would reflect this story. “For each box sold we will give an amount towards the charity Build Africa. The beneficiaries will be the inhabitants of Kenya and Uganda. We don’t want to give them clothes or food, but rather to educate them and allow them to live a better life,” she explains.
