Excerpt from “Expert Choices: The Best Chocolates” by Lei Chavez for SEAIR InFlight December – January 2010
“Buddy Trinidad’s Park Avenue Desserts — just delicious. Call ahead since all are made to order and specially prepared by award winning pastry chef Buddy Trinidad. Rolando Laudico’s Chef Laudico Chocolates for pralines with a Filipino twist, like buko-lambanog (coconut-palm wine) infused white chocolate ganache dipped in semi sweet chocolate rolled in dessicated coconut, and manga-dried mango rhum ganache barako, among others. And Benoit Nicolay’s Chocolates by Benoit , Belgian chocolates by a Belgian available at Terry’s.”
