This must be the world’s tastiest flute

This must be the world’s tastiest flute

Two friends - one a pastry chef, the other a flautist - have combined their talents to create what appears to be the world’s first ever, playable chocolate flute.

Indian chef Vinesh Johny partnered with his friend, flautist Parth Chandiramani, to create the tasty project.

“It took a lot of time and research understanding the intricacies of making a wind instrument, to finally create an actual playable flute entirely out of chocolate,” Johny explained on Instagram.

He used his specialist pastry chef tool to craft the instrument, which he shared with the world in a video posted on July 7, also known as World Chocolate Day.

In the post, Johny credits Chandiramani for bringing his creation to life: “This mad idea could only happen with one of the greatest flute players in the country.”

Chandiramani also shared the creation on his Instagram page.

“Vinesh Johny came up with this brilliant idea of making a flute entirely out of chocolate. It was such a fun experience seeing this fabulous idea come to life. Thank you Vinesh for giving me the honour of playing this delicious chocolate flute,” he said...

“I didn’t just get to play it, I got to eat it too!” 

In the clip, Chandiramani plays the Indian song - ‘Urvasi Urvasi’ composed by A.R. Rahman for the soundtrack of the 1994 film Kadhalan.
