The Magnum Masterclass: In a Class of its Own

Last week I got a wonderful invitation to attend the Magnum Masterclass at the Taj Bengal. A big vote of thanks to Kolkata Food Bloggers to give me this opportunity. Generally, I have to give up all the invites during the week, thanks to the hectic office life..but this time the event was on I just took the plunge!

I reached the Taj Bengal with a pounding heart because I was going to meet the celebrity chef Kunal Kapur (of Masterchef India) fame. Wow! I have been an ardent follower of Masterchef India so it was like a dream come true for me. And to meet the "beauty-with-brains" Soha Ali Khan was an added bonus.

Well the event started off with the chef giving us some info about Belgian chocolates. Belgian chocolates are premium quality chocolates that contain nearly 35% pure cocoa. This chocolate also does not have any bad fats. When you bite into a Belgian chocolate, you will not find any chocolate sticking to the back of your teeth or palate.

The Magnum icecream is made of this premium Belgian Chocolate and believe me one bite of this icecream is pure magic!

Do enjoy some pictures of the event.

The Magnum is going to hit the stores of Kolkata on the 1st of March. The price would be INR 90. But believe you me...this ice cream is mind-blowing! Do indulge.
