3 September 2021 (Suzhou, China) — From September to December 2021, Niccolo Suzhou, in partnership with the century-old classic luxury brand Montblanc, will offer the ‘Montblanc UltraBlack’ afternoon tea, celebrating the launch of the new Montblanc UltraBlack Collection. This all-black cross-category collection pays tribute to its heritage with the colours in Montblanc’s emblem, along with elegance and simplicity of timeless design.
Inspired by the brand-new Montblanc UltraBlack Collection, Marx, the hotel’s pastry chef, has created a series of classic and modern delights that reflects Montblanc’s statement on versatility, blending in the wonderful twist of Niccolo’s contemporary chic lifestyle. The classic black, white and orange colours complement each other effortlessly, giving the modern delights an unprecedented unique texture and charm.
The shape of the cake is a subtle tribute to the new Montblanc StarWalker UltraBlack writing instruments. The ink box-shaped cake combines sour cherry, sweet cream, bitter chocolate and mellow cherry wine to show the charm of traditional black forest cake inspired by modern writing instruments.
Orange and Choco Gâteau
Underneath the chocolate dial inspired by the all-new Montblanc 1858 Geosphere UltraBlack watch, a soft, sweet orange mousse paired with 33% white chocolate cream will leave you an unforgettable surprise on your palate.
Caramelia Nuts Tartlet
Symbolizing the fleeting time, the revolving time tunnel on the surface of this dessert represents the timeless presence of Montblanc spirit --- elegant, mysterious and dignified. The subtle fulfilment of Caramelised nuts, crispy vanilla and a creamy chocolate tart base, will gently whisk you away through time and space.
Foie Gras Crème Brûlée and Orange Compote
The creation of this savoury takes inspiration from the new Montblanc Smart watch --- The SUMMIT Lite with an addition of a retro compass on the crème brûlée. Combining the spirit of discovery of the Niccolo brand, it enhances the fun and creativity of dessert savouring, while the foie gras cream and cheese crumble takes dessert texture to the next level.
Ricotta Mousse, Tomato and Basil
This classic salty Italian dish is distinguished using the noble and elegant-looking black leather pattern by Montblanc. A refreshing basil aroma is paired with delicate tomatoes and soft cheese, creating a unique visual and tactile savouring experience.
