In an exclusive collaboration between Yauatcha and esteemed designer Manish Malhotra, luxury fashion and food converge to celebrate the craftsmanship and skill of both brands.

Designer Manish Malhotra has many different talents, all of them creative: a couturier, costume stylist and entrepreneur, Manish’s prolific career spans 29 years.

Founder of the eponymous Manish Malhotra label, Manish has carved a unique niche in the fashion industry by becoming a luxury designer, dressing some of the most celebrated actors in the Bollywood film circuit as well as brides across the country.

His glamourous designs are informed by traditional colours, textures and embroideries. His dexterity and passion are what inspired the Yauatcha partnership: both brands value timeless, intelligent design and unbridled expertise.

In celebration of this exciting partnership, Yauatcha and Manish Malhotra have come together to create a collection of limited edition haute petits gateaux and macarons in custom designed patisserie boxes inspired by Manish’s exquisite designs.

The collection includes four petits gateaux and four macarons, each influenced by elements of Manish’s couture.

The Golden nougat, a rich chocolate dessert filled with molten chocolate, is finished with a textured chocolate spray which mimics luxurious velvet fabric, while the gold dusted cookie crumble finish echoes his crafted gold thread zardozi work.   

The Royal rose grand macaron uses the delicate flavour of rose, in keeping with India’s rich culinary culture, and is decorated with a bow-shaped white chocolate ruffle and a delicate rose petal.

In another nod to Manish’s trademark designs, the Velvet milk chocolate praline is finished with delicate gold, while the Golden leaf marries flavours synonymous with Yauatcha such as black tea with a touch of luxury in golden dusted leaves.

In addition to the haute petits gateaux, four new macarons will be available in celebratory flavours including coconut, pistachio, violet and blueberry and hazelnut, each decorated with gold dusted feuilletine flakes.   The Yauatcha x Manish Malhotra limited haute desserts are available now in Yauatcha Kolkata.
