Mesob Ethiopian Restaurant Introduces New Vegan Chocolates to Dessert Menu

Mesob Ethiopian Restaurant of Montclair, NJ is proud to announce the addition of a new vegan option to its line of premium, all-natural desserts – the Mesob Ethiopian Vegan Chocolate Collection.  Debuting on Thursday, December 16, 2010, the handmade gourmet chocolates are filled with a dairy-free dark chocolate ganache infused with a selection of exotic Ethiopian spices, coffee and tea – Berbere, Hibiscus, Kemem Shai and Ethiopian Coffee.

The chocolates are made by Chocolate Legends, owned by New Jersey artisanal chocolatier, Sherri Hiller. She introduced Mesob owner Berekti Mengistu to her gourmet chocolate line and worked with the restaurant to develop a vegan chocolate collection.  Hiller’s special collections have been featured at Delicious Orchards. This is the first vegan chocolate specialty Hiller has created for a restaurant.

Berekti met Sherri Hiller, through Marketing Manager Vickie Smith-Siculiano, who was familiar with the unique offerings of Chocolate Legends.  Says Berekti,  “I was excited to have our own chocolate collection, with our Ethiopian spices and flavors. Having them especially made to fit a vegan diet was perfect for us as many of our diners are Vegans.  These chocolates will fit perfectly on our menu of fresh, all-natural, no-preservatives added foods.   We listen to our customers and want to create the best experience for them.” 

Gift boxes of these chocolates will also be available at the restaurant, which has plans to expand the varieties to include other authentic Ethiopian flavors.
