In partnership with Norman Love, Princess Cruises offers an exclusive Chocolate Journeys program available onboard fleetwide. Love’s creations blend premium quality chocolate and artful design. This fun and unique offering was one sweet perk of cruising with Princess. Each dining option on board has different Chocolate Journey desserts available.
Daily you can choose from delectable chocolate options throughout the day in the Horizon Court Buffet. During my trip I anxiously watched as the selection changed from chocolate muffins to slices of cakes and puddings.
You’ll find Norman Love’s artful chocolate creations on various dining room desserts menus. At the Chef’s Table dinner you are treated to an array of chocolate delights. This special dining experience starts your night in the kitchen with the Executive chef and ends with a what seems like an endless selection of chocolate-y treats.
You can also purchase exclusive Norman Love confections in the various gift shops. AND there is even Chocolate Spa Treatments! You can indulge in a luscious, anti-oxidant chocolate body treatment. You leave smelling like one big chocolate bar.
Suffice it to say, if you are a chocolate lover this is the cruise for you!
Here is a teaser of just one of the desserts you can enjoy. Check out the plating of one of the Chocolate Journey desserts…
Love chocolate cake? So do I! Bon Appetite shared a story about 3 Chocolate Cake Recipes You Need In Your Life, which got me thinking yeah you really do need chocolate cake in your life! So then I got to baking. I loved the tips in this post as well. For a more in depth read check out the original post here, my biggest take away was the addition of buttermilk for tenderness. Seems so obvious reading it, I do this with scones, but I actually don’t often do it with cake.
Of the three my favorites was the Chocolate Sheet cake, but that really just comes down to ease. While I completely ooo and awww over a gorgeous layer cake, I’m not one to jump at the task of frosting it. I’m find with one simple layer and a smathering of sweet frosting on top. Keep it easy!
Wolf is the newly opened restaurant from chef Marcel Vigneron on Melrose Ave. in Los Angeles. The menu features seasonal Los Angeles cuisine made from locally – sourced ingredients. Beyond the amazing savories is a swoon-worthy dessert menu. They have a Blueberry Souffle with violet ice cream that is melt in your mouth good. I didn’t get a chance to try the Roasted Banana with maple whip, peanut tuile and cacao, but the Not Your Grandma’s Chocolate Cake was heavenly. It is topped with gianduia ice cream, candied hazenuts and gold and is essentially a refined cake version of ferrero rochers!
Wolf is open for dinner Tuesday–Thursday from 6pm – 10pm, and Friday—Saturday from 6pm – 11pm.
