DELIGANT “A”: Lucky Share Cocoa Pod for everyone

My concept of "DELIGANT" is to embody "elegance that is not only delicious".
There are two episodes that led me to create this concept. Just before my friend died of cancer, her husband gave her a confection I made for her. As she was eating it, she smiled and said, “As expected, it is so delicious". Two hours later, she passed away. This tragic experience convinced me that sweets must always be delicious.

As a pastry chef, I delivered sweets to areas that were severely damaged by a typhoon. We were able to make many people happy and bring smiles back to their faces. Unfortunately, one of the children was allergic to eggs and could not eat the pastries I delivered. 

After experiencing these events, I realised that as a professional confectioner, the most important thing for #TMRW is to have the elegance to create custom-made sweets for each individual so that they can choose what they want to eat, rather than what they can eat.

“Delicious" + "Elegant." This is my DELIGANT concept.


I believe that everyone might know someone with a food allergy. When taking allergies into account, sharing with everyone can be a real challenge. My DELIGANT for this assignment is the deliciousness associated with the elegance to be able to provide deliciousness to everyone, regardless of their allergies.

This is why I made this #SHARE without any of the world’s well known 30 allergen ingredients. I have replaced the traditional animal based fresh cream with a brand new rice based product I’ve developed. I also decided to use muscovado instead of the usual sugar, that provides an extra richness in terms of taste and adds minerals as well as vitamins in terms of nutrition. 

Generally, people think that non-animal based ice cream is always lacking something, but I believe that my DELIGANT ice cream will change that, and I’m convinced that most of the people won’t be able to tell the difference with a regular animal based ice cream. This new product is drastically increasing the deliciousness of plant-based & allergen free ice cream, that will finally give the opportunity to everyone to share deliciousness and smile. 

My concept of "DELIGANT" is linked to all the themes of WCM. In #SHARE, I express “Delicious+Allergen free", as for the "A" of DELIGANT. 
deligAnt" = “Delicious+Allergen free" = #SHARE
