Gingerline's Institute Of Flavourology Only the Brave will Dine

Godiva Masterpiece Banquet

Black Swan Studios, London Bridge
September 2017

Gingerline commissioned Flavourology to create a multi-sensory menu for the Godiva Masterpieces banquet. 

The experience treated guests to a luxurious dining menu with three indulgent courses inspired by the shapes, tastes and storied behind the new Godiva Masterpieces collection: the Heart, the Shell and the Lion. 

On arrival, visitors stepped into an artist’s workshop and ventured through a painting into a banquet hall. Once inside guests embarked on a gastronomic feast with three full-room transformations. By incorporating specific smells and textures into the menu along with the movement, sound and wonderment Gingerline is known for, guests were propelled on a chocolate journey like no other. 

Menu 

Heart: Eyes meet and indulge for longer than they should. Hearts thud in anticipation of that first touch. Sparks fly, senses elevated, one moment never felt so good. 

Duck liver parfait w/ cocoa, sour cherry, truffle aioli & beetroot chutney. Served w/ brioche toasts

Shell: Let the seas of change wash away what has gone before. Dive deeper, swim with the fishes and float in the beauty of the unexplored.

Part One 

Coral platters w/ oyster shells - oyster emulsion, smoked eel, sea bass tartar, oyster leaves & tamarind gel

Part Two

Scallops w/ hazelnuts & lemon verbena
