My love affair with chocolate began in the simplest form – from our childhood faves Hany and Choc-nut that, to the branded ones that are easily accessible in the groceries, up to the ones that are sought after in the international market.
but nothing beats the classic homey taste of our homegrown hot chocolate – also known as sikwate that makes you think of HOME. and this was Ms. Rachel Choa – also known as our homegrown Chocolate queen, and her equally beautiful daughter Hannah – has been given to us during the intimate event at The Manila Hotel. we were able to experience the chocolates that comes in tablea form that is sold at The Manila Hotel’s The Deli – a perfect gift for all chocolate afficionados for the upcoming yuletide season.
The chocolate queen’s passion for chocolates has brought her to different places to showcase our very own chocolate in order to put is in the international scene. with her perseverance and passion, she and her group of friends opened The Chocolate Chamber in 2016. In the same year, Ms. Choa represented the Philippines in the Le Salon de Chocolat in New York.
The intimate event with Ms. Rachel and Hannah has transported us into the whimsical world of chocolates – that our local variety is indeed world class, that you have to do the 5S (swirl, smell, sip, swish and swallow) in order to enjoy our hot chocolate, and there are many varieties of hot chocolate that we can experience, enjoy, and can be proud of.
