Fashion and gastronomy go hand in hand and no one did it better during the Vogue Fashion Dubai Experience than Parisian tearoom Angelina, who served up its Hot Chocolat L'Africain to the fashion industry's bigwigs.
Once a favourite of Coco Chanel, the famous African hot chocolate is composed of three carefully selected varieties of African cocoa from Niger, Ghana and Côte d'Ivoire. It's this combination that gives Angelina's Hot Chocolat L'Africain its taste and distinctive character.
"As the world's fashion cognoscenti descended on Dubai for a spectacular celebration of high fashion and creativity, it was only natural for Angelina to add gastronomic chic to the event," said Angelina's Executive Chef Tarun Sharma. "The celebrities and VIPs flying in for VFDE are well aware of Angelina and the history of its iconic hot chocolate. We wanted to bring that experience and legacy to a local audience as well."
