Meet London’s New Vegan Chocolate Creations

FEATURE: QUICK READ
Words by EMILIE DOCK

Constantly pushing the boundaries of plant-based cooking, our head pastry chef Philip Khoury developed two exclusive vegan desserts for the Harrods Food Halls – one patisserie, one confectionery – made with Callebaut’s NXT dairy-free milk chocolate. Over a year since the launch, Dawn of a New Day (see below) remains a firm favourite. Check out the video for a behind-the-scenes glimpse of Khoury’s creative process, then visit the Roastery & Bake Hall to taste the fruits of his labour.

Dawn of a New Day
Kent Conference pears poached in Harrods No. 42 Earl Grey tea with velvety milk-chocolate cream, Earl Grey sponge and milk-chocolate Chantilly – with a biscuit crunch.

“I wanted to make treats that blow you away with the taste and indulgence you expect – just without animal ingredients,” says Khoury. “Callebaut’s NXT dairy-free chocolate is a familiar starting point. I tried many alternatives and had almost given up on reaching that familiar milk-chocolate profile in recipes that we know and love. Many alternatives rely on nuts or rice and oat, which has a different profile.”

"Plant-based baking almost requires you to forget what you know and start over. Our traditional recipes that have been developed over the past 200-300 years have eggs and dairy as their foundation. Vegan recipes require a lot of reformulation and reinvention!"

“I wanted to evoke some classic pairings, and Harrods tea and coffee was a fantastic place to start. Here, less sweet Perla Negra coffee caramel lends a robust flavour to balance the sweetness of the chocolate,” says Khoury.
