A Churros and Chocolate Affair at Four Seasons Hotel Bengaluru
A decadent daytime dalliance
Crisp on the outside, soft and tender on the inside, and best dunked into chocolate: churros are adored the world over for their deliciousness and ease, just as any comfort food is. Anyone who has visited Spain will vouch for the nationwide fame of this simple but soulful creation.
The origins of churros are foggy, but one version that is widely accepted is the story of nomadic shepherds who lived in the high mountains and had limited access to fresh food, so they decided to fry dough made of flour and water, as sustenance. Soon enough, the craze of churros had caught on, because who doesn’t love crispy fried dough with sprinkled sugar? Spanish explorers brought this tasty dessert in the 16th century with them, and before one knew it, churros had evolved with chocolate as accompaniment, and a global favourite was born.
The pastry team at Four Seasons Hotel Bengaluru have created a promotion involving the sensory pleasures of hot chocolate and handcrafted churros. These delightfully flavoured treats will be served with a bespoke twist. The menu also has a range of hot chocolates, served with marshmallows and chocolate flakes in flavours such as Valrhona smoked cinnamon (dark), salted caramel and hazelnut (milk), saffron and turmeric (white). The chefs will be using the coveted Valrhona chocolate, which is known for its premium quality and loved by pastry chefs the world over.
Traditionally churros are fried dough pastries showered with powdered sugar, but at Four Seasons they will be served with caramel sauce, chocolate sauce and cheese frosting.
“We wanted to recreate some tasty treats for daytime snacking and who doesn’t love churros? The Valrhona chocolate is rich and lush; a pleasure to work with. It also lends a luxe charm to the hot chocolates we will be serving,” says Executive Pastry Chef Partha Bose
Valrhona is a premium French chocolate manufacturer based in Hermitage, a wine-growing district near Lyon. The company has a storied history since 1922 and produces confectionery, plain and flavoured chocolate bars and bulk chocolate in bars or pellets, adored by pastry professionals around the world. Huge advocates of promoting sustainable and ethical relationships with cacao suppliers, this premium chocolate brand is revered for its exquisite taste.
