Unique Chocolate Chef is Marriott Manila’s main Valentine attraction

Marriott Manila Sunday Brunch Cru Steakhouse

Last Sunday I had brunch at Marriott Cafe and this chocolate “scuplture” was causing quite a stir among the patrons. At first I thought it was just an ordinary scuplture – aside from the fact that it was made entirely of chocolate and very lifelike, there appeared to be nothing out of the ordinary. Probably made out of styrofoam, I thought. Boy was I wrong. I got the shock of my life when all of a sudden the scuplture moved! Full details, photos, and videos after the jump.

As it turns out, it was as lifelike as it can get because inside is a real person! It was no other than Chef Art Velayo (cool name for a chef who’s literally a piece of art), coated in liquid milk chocolate – from head to toe. An artist comes in every so often to retouch her “makeup”. Of course I had to try tasting her and yes she was indeed made out of delicious chocolate. How often do you get a living, breathing version of your favourite desert?

So we’ve been talking about live chocolate, but how about a tree made out of macaroons, or a painting made out of milk chocolate? The chocolate bar at Marriott Cafe is like a mini Charlie and the Chocolate Factory!
