From salmon fillets enlivened with dark chocolate to a savoury tarte tatin with a white chocolate flourish, each new creation offers up something distinctively flavourful and showcases the wonderful versatility of chocolate.

Starting this October, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts will be celebrating Swiss cuisine and the culinary versatility of chocolate with a new global menu of savoury dishes featuring a sweet twist.

The brand’s talented ‘food artisans’ have made Mövenpick chocolate the hero of seven dishes in its ‘Chocolate on the Salty Side’ promotion, which runs from October 10-November 20 at selected Mövenpick hotel and resort restaurants worldwide. From salmon fillets enlivened with dark chocolate to a savoury tarte tatin with a white chocolate flourish, each new creation offers up something distinctively flavourful and showcases the wonderful versatility of chocolate.

The hotel chain says that the quality of Swiss craftsmanship is world-famous and even the country’s chocolate is produced with legendary precision. Thus, 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% cocoa butter.

The seven chocolate-inspired creations include marinated ‘beetroot salmon’ with root vegetables and 72% dark chocolate to enhance the meal’s rich earthiness; ‘tomato tarte tatin’ where ‘white lemon’ chocolate complements the goat’s cheese, pine nuts and coffee beans; and ‘sea bass and green tea’ — a light foam of green tea, almonds, nuts and Mövenpick ‘Maple Walnut’.
