Godiva Chocolatier presents SWEET sponsored by Absolut Vodka, Kahlua and Perrier-Jouët hosted by Duff Goldman
Saturday, October 10, 2009

Talk about a midnight snack! Here’s your chance to indulge your sweet tooth in one of the guiltiest pleasures we can imagine. Hosted by Food Network’s industrial-strength cake maker Duff Goldman -of the endless fondant and the occasional cake-sculpting chainsaw – and featuring the creations of dozens of your favorite pastry chefs, including an exclusively created dessert by Godiva's Chef Chocolatier - this full-on sugar rush is definitely worth the calories. Taste a delicious selection of Godiva chocolates set in the most decadent of chocolate surroundings as you explore this sweetest of events with music by Brooklyn DJs Finger on the Pulse ( The centerpiece of the Festival – and, in fact, the lone event that two years ago started it all – tonight is all about free-flowing Champagne in your complimentary Spiegelau flute and the goodies you’ll pair it with: handmade chocolates, cream-filled puffs crammed with silky custard, to-die-for cupcakes slathered with miles of frosting, not to mention layered tortes jammed with liqueur-laced jellies, ice-cream so rich you’ll cry from happiness, and even rare cheeses crafted by artisans. Start your diet today if you must, but leave room for dessert!
