Chocolate & Cheese May Be This Fall’s Most Irresistible Combination

You won’t have to decide between sweet and savory this fall! The Président® brand is teaming up with Brooklyn’s The Chocolate Room for a special “chocolate meets cheese” collaboration.

Pastry Chef Romina Peixoto – who worked at Eleven Madison ParkFishtail by David Burke, and became the first female Executive Pastry Chef at Le Cirque – combined the creaminess of four Président® cheeses to complement the bitterness of dark chocolate and the sweetness of milk chocolate into four limited-edition bonbons.

  1. The Strawberry Brie Cheesecake bon bon pairs sweet white chocolate with a decadent Président® Triple Crème Brie ganache, finishing with strawberry jam and graham cracker crust.

  1. The Blue Cheese Galaxy combines dark chocolate with a mellow Président® Blue Cheese ganache, pear compote and walnut praline.

  1. Third on the menu, is an Apricot Goat Cheese Cobbler bon bon, which marries a classic milk chocolate with a fresh Président® Goat Cheese ganache, apricot compote and almond crumble.

  1. Last, but certainly not least, the fourth bonbon is a Coconut Comté Crunch – creamy white chocolate paired with a nutty Président® Comté ganache and encased by a toasted coconut crunch.

On Wednesday, September 25th, a group of influencers will be invited to try out these new creations. To learn more and follow along after the event, check out these hashtags to see them for yourself! #LifeWellPaired #PresidentCheeseUS #TheChocolateRoomBrooklyn.


Additionally, chocolate and cheese lovers alike will be able to purchase their very own limited-time gift box for the month of October, featuring one of each of the four flavors, at The Chocolate Room located at 269 Court Street in Brooklyn, NY.
