Shangri-La Hotel, Bangkok’s Chocolate Boutique presents a new selection of patisserie to delight anyone’s sweet tooth.

Among executive pastry chef Christoph Widmer’s notable new creations are the Salted Caramel, Vanilla, Pineapple Cheesecake, New York Cheesecake, English Fruit Cake and Butter Marble Cake. Fans of Italian fare should be sure to try the Tiramisu Eclair with creamy and smooth tiramisu filling.

A long-term resident of Thailand, the Swiss-born chef also explores the possibility of using locally sourced premium produce. One item he experiments with is a 70-per-cent Chiang Mai Dark Chocolate Crunch Dome. Rich dark chocolate from Chiang Mai elevates this delight to another level.

“As a chef who loves the fragrance of freshly baked pastries and enjoys playing with wonderful and interesting ingredients, I always feel at home when I am in my kitchen, and this new patisserie selection is a heart-made collection, something I would cook at home for my family and special friends and which I believe that they would very much enjoy,” he says. 

The Chocolate Boutique also offers many other choices including Almond Darquoise, Diplmat, Raspberry, Hazelnut Praline Mille Feuille, Baked Royal Apicot Tart, Chocolate Passionfruit Craze, Banana Cake with Walnut and Green Tea Castella Cake.

The Chocolate Boutique is open daily from 7.45am to 11pm.
