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 (www.fotpnyc.com). 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!
