Chinese stem ginger enrobed by a velvet layer of bittersweet, rich dark chocolate.
Presented in a dark orange and cream gift box, a wonderful quote from Oscar Wilde decorates the side of each box. Written in 1890 when he worked for The Women's Journal, this grand collection is inspired by Charbonnel et Walker's Victorian heritage; ' The House of Charbonnel is one of the oldest ministrants to the taste for sweets, and upon their counters will be found the latest dainties...'
About Charbonnel et Walker
Founded in 1875, Charbonnel et Walker is one of Britain’s earliest chocolatiers. Encouraged by Edward VII, (then the Prince of Wales), the company first formed as a partnership between Mrs Walker and Mme. Charbonnel, the latter from the Maison Boissier chocolate house in Paris. Charbonnel et Walker's first shop opened at 173 New Bond Street in Mayfair and has remained in Bond Street ever since. It is now housed in one of London’s elegant arcades, the Royal Arcade on Old Bond Street. 'We feel much pride and privilege to be endorsed by the Royal Warrant as chocolate manufacturers to Her Majesty The Queen'.
