The Cookbook Appelicious
“Working on ‘Appelicious’ with Stemilt Growers has been a truly exciting experience,” said Zeba Kohli, Founder, Fantasie Fine Chocolate. “The team and I have been on the same page through the way, and our passion to bring fresh new things to the table really sparked, to make the book what it is today. Apples and chocolate are a match made in heaven, and having one of the leading suppliers in the market on board gave me so much insight into the business of apples. We want people to know that even indulgences can be healthy, and we are sure our readers and consumers will love what is in store for them.”
“We are pleased to be hosting the launch of ‘Appelicious’,” said Tarun Arora, Director, IG International. “At IG International, it has been our aim to introduce our Indian consumers to the best produce from around the world. Bringing them a book about how to incorporate fruits in your diet in innovative ways is a further extension of that. Zeba Kohli is the best at what she does, and her chocolates are truly delicious. By joining forces, Zeba and Stemilt Growers have produced this beautiful cookbook, full of recipes on using apples with chocolate.”
Representing Stemilt Growers, the SEM of the company, William Young commented that, “The health trends are in, and people are focusing on how to incorporate the healthy aspect into all their food consumption. Our organic apples are amongst the most popular in the world, and consumers really enjoy them. We are thrilled to have worked with Zeba on Red Temptations, to show people that all your healthy eating doesn’t have to be boring, and to show chocolate fanatics that chocolate can also be healthy! The book includes several new ways to make great treats easily.”
