Alchemy is one of my favourite places to go when I am in Bali. I love it so much, I even asked them to provide all of their raw desserts for my wedding! I wanted to do something different other than the usual dessert selection you see at weddings. So I came up with the idea to create a Raw Dessert Bar that everyone could pick and choose what they would like to try. They would be able to indulge in healthy superfood packed desserts without feeling any guilt!
The week before my wedding I organised a meeting with Alchemy to taste test their Raw Desserts and Chocolates. I was familiar with a few of their flavours, however I wanted to do some serious tasting research and try them all. And I am so happy I did! I met with Shanti, Keira and Lesya to discuss my order. They were really excited to cater for my wedding. A beautiful selection of their desserts and chocolates were presented to me.
The chocolates were amazing! I had asked to try the White Magic, Chai Fudge, Lemonade Fudge, Oh My Goji, Peppermint Patty, Peanut Buttercup, Bounty Ball, Milk Chocolate and Ginger Raisin Crunch. I loved the idea of presenting them in halves so my wedding guests could see what each filling was. Shanti also had the idea to add a strawberry to the White Magic chocolate to give a strawberries and cream effect, with a pretty strawberry placed in the middle. Needless to say, I decided to order all of the chocolates!
I love their breakfast parfaits and thought it would be cute to serve mini versions of these. Alchemy provided the most adorable mini mason jars to display them in. I went with their flavour recommendations, how amazing do they look!? These little beauties are not just to enjoy at breakfast time that’s for sure!
The raw desserts were up next – Coconut Lemon, Black Forest, Cloud 9, Banoffee Pie, Mocha Holic, Tiramisu and Magic Mint. And every single one of these tasted so good! I couldn’t decide between them so decided to choose all of them as well. But if I had to choose my favourite? I think it would have to be either the Mocha Holic or Banoffee Pie. Or maybe Magic Mint! Seriously, they are all too good!
I was putting together a thank you bag for all of our guests and wanted to include a recovery pack. I thought a healthy snack bar would complement this perfectly. So I decided on the Almond Goji Energy Bar which Alchemy individually wrapped to be added into the gift bag. These little natural raw energy bars came in handy at the end of the night for our guests.
With the help of my wedding planner Narelle from Global Weddings, a chilled refrigerated display was organised to present all of the raw desserts. It was beautifully decorated by our florist with flowers, lanterns, candles and a blackboard sign. I could not have been happier! It looked absolutely perfect!
The Alchemy Raw Dessert Bar was a huge success! All our guests loved it! And for many of our guests, it was their first time trying raw dessert and I think on the day of our wedding I converted a lot of them into Raw Foodies! And best of all…we had raw desserts leftover to enjoy at our beautiful villa for days after! (Tip: always order extra for that reason alone!)
A big grateful thank you goes out to Shanti, Keira, Lesya and their wonderful team at Alchemy!
