Mövenpick Hotel & Residences Nairobi will, from October 10 to November 20 treat guests to a new menu of savory dishes with a sweet twist as Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts, its upscale brand within the AccorHotels Group, launches its ‘Chocolate on the Salty Side’ promotion.

The brand’s talented ‘food artisans’, in celebration of Swiss cuisine and the wonderful versatility of chocolate, have made Mövenpick chocolate the hero of seven dishes in its latest global campaign that will run for the stipulated period.

Each new creation offers up something distinctively flavorful and showcases chocolate in new exciting ways to guests dining at Mövenpick Hotel & Residences Nairobi – Baluba restaurant. Some of the dishes range from salmon fillets enlivened with dark chocolate to a savory tarte tartin with a white chocolate flourish,

The seven chocolate-inspired creations include:

  • Marinated ‘beetroot salmon’ with root vegetables and 72 percent dark chocolate to enhance the meal’s rich earthiness;
  • ‘Tomato tarte tartin’ where ‘white lemon’ chocolate complements the goat’s cheese, pine nuts, and coffee beans;
  • ‘Seabass and green tea’ – a light foam of green tea, almonds, nuts, and Mövenpick ‘Maple Walnut’ is the star;
  • ‘Minute beef goulash’, with a traditionally-made Hungarian goulash sauce, enriched with dark chocolate;
  • ‘Lamb shank and pesto’, slow-roasted and then refined with pistachio and hazelnut chocolate pesto;
  • ‘Duck breast and potato pie’, with white chocolate, lime, and pepper giving the pink-roasted meat a delicate yet spicy freshness.

Guests can finish their meal with a tempting ‘chocolate pavés au chocolat’, that combines milk chocolate, crispy cocoa bean fragments, sizzling pecan nuts, and slightly bitter matcha powder, all with a hint of green tea and paired with an espresso.

The quality of Swiss craftsmanship is world-famous and even the country’s chocolate is produced with legendary precision.

Mövenpick chocolate is made in keeping with the tradition, as well as its own culinary values that date back 70 years, and is produced in Switzerland using 100 percent cocoa butter.
