What's better than A Chocolatier Experience with my girlfriends in a fine afternoon?
Tim Clark, an acclaimed Master Pastry Chef and Melbourne’s award winning artisan chocolatier and pâtissier is here at InterContinental® Kuala Lumpur in conjunction with the InterContinental Kuala Lumpur World Celebrity Chef Series 2015, to create the best in new and innovative cakes, chocolates, pastries and macarons for afternoon tea, dessert menu, chocolate buffet as well as a master cooking class from 15 November to 20 November 2015.
Artisanal Afternoon Tea at IVIV (OneSixFive) Lounge and Bar
Each limited-time tea set allows guests to enjoy the finest indulgence of Chef Tim Clark’s ambrosial selections of sweet and savoury items with a pot of selected house tea from TWG Tea.
Available daily between 2:00pm to 5:00pm, RM 160 nett per tea stand, inclusive two pots of tea.
Chermoula Spice Roast Duck Orange Marmalade Sandwich
Mille Feuille of Smoked Atlantic Salmon
Among the savouries, my favourite goes to the beautifully crafted slices of salmon that resembles the French pastry. Layered with cream cheese, each piece is simply heavenly!
Smashed Avocado Open Face Sandwich with Toasted Pine Nuts and Micro Cress
If you are a bread person, the avocado sandwich is equally indulgent and filling.
Chick Pear Fritter in Tahini, Coriander Mayonnaise
Eggplant Caviar Marinated Lamb Ciabatta
As I am more inclined towards sweet stuff, I can't decide which is my favourite item on the tea stand because the incredible sweet and tangy combination of desserts is just perfect. For instance, the Chef's specialty Murray River Salted Caramel Macaron is to-die-for.
Choc Pop with Freeze Dried Raspberry
Passion Fruit Marshmallow Cubes
Tangy, soft, hits at the right spot!
Double Chocolate Cake
Of course, no afternoon tea is perfect without a good cup of warm tea.
TWG has picked 8 types of tea out of its vast selections of over 400 types of tea in the house, to pair with the sweet and savoury tea set, ensuring that diners get to enjoy the combination at its best.
I pick the legendary grand classic, TWG Earl Grey tea-- Fragrant and richly infused with bergamot. Other selections available include TWG's signature Moonfruit Black Tea, Moroccan Mint Tea, Grand Jasmine Tea, just to name a few.
Prime Chocolatier Collection
To complete the chocolatier experience, be spoilt for choice with the delectably-crafted Double Chocolate, Maracuja Cheesecake and more at the IVIV (ONESIXFIVE) chocolate counter that are sure to leave your senses craving for more.

The Great Indulgence with Wine Pairing
