Every day in Mumbai 200,000 home cooked, multi course lunches are collected from residences and hand delivered to students and workers across one of the most densely populated cities in the world. The tiffin boxes are delivered by dabbawalas via trains, bicycles and hand carts in a spectacular show which is unique and astonishingly precise. ( according to a recent survey, there is only one mistake in every 6,000,000 deliveries)
The lunches are packed in tiffin boxes also called dabbas, each course separated into layers that stack and lock together for the journey through the bustling streets of Mumbai.
Inspired by this ingenious system we present to you our version of the tiffin box. Of course you guessed it- ours is loaded with 4 layers of chocolate!! cherries, truffles, beautiful meringues in the shape of flower buds and a big Passion Fruit Baked Alaska heart are packed into a beautiful curvy, totally reusable, stainless steel Tiffin Box ready for you to gift to that special someone. As each layer is revealed the message of love becomes more complete.
Best part of the tiffin box is that it can be returned back to you packed with love letters and treats. This sweet exchange can last as long as stars twinkle in the sky...
LAYER ONE- TRUFFLES
the quintessential gift, a collection of 8 magical super heros to up the love levels at least 3 levels
Sweet and tart whole cherries tumbled in dark chocolate. Think Black forest cake
FLOWER BUD MERINGUES
These darlings are piped into little flowery buds and dipped in dark chocolate. 2 different flavours "passion" fruit and raspberry both tangy, bright and beautiful like love in all its different forms.
BAKED ALASKA HEARTS
Baked Alaska is the original fire and ice- layers of ice-cream and cake encased in fluffy meringue doused in rum and set on fire. Almost always served for two, ridiculously romantic.
Our baked Alaska is made as a special large format truffle: layers of passion fruit and rum truffle, almond dacquoise and hazelnut praline encased in roasted chocolate, set on fire to taste like campfire marshmallows.
