Selected Chocolates for December 2011

28 Nov

Finally I have my Selection bonbons for December, available in my shop, Amsterdam and London.

To experience what gourmet chocolate can do for all your senses, visit Erik of Chocolatl in Amsterdam and Patricia of La Fromagerie in London.

Presentation in plastic portable chess box, wellcrafted & attracttive pieces, clean & easy on the eyes by moderate sheen; uniform size & shaped to look like mahjong tiles au noir; ditto color transfer tops all lined up in neat rows if technically imperfect; overall, so far so good.

Flavor: delimited by design. Primarily a series of single-origin ganaches, the equivalent of a Grand Palet d’Or Tour Around the World of Premium Cacáo, with only a few containing inclusions for change of pace / taste. (source: The Daily Review Boxed Chocolate )

For enrobing the dark bonbons I used the Chocolate Fortunato N°4 68% of Marañón with 100% Pure Nacional Cacao

These bonbons are always made by myself and only by myself, chocolate is one with my life; alive, living with joy. I just don’t want to make the chocolate complicated. I feel it is important to keep chocolates handmade, by my own hand, so this creates a limit. If the customer can enjoy the chocolates, it is this satisfaction that gives me the energy to continue my work.

Please feel free to enjoy and to share this feeling with many others

Your sincerely chocolatier.
