if jacques torres tells us to eat more chocolate, maybe we should! this award winning french master baker has had sweeping influenceÂ in his craft around the world, and continues to be a dynamic force in the industry, especially in his current role as the dean of pastry studies at the french culinary instituteÂ in new york. jacquesÂ has a scrumptious line of chocolates that are terrific for giving or keeping. yesterday when i was at bittersweet i came across them and had to share (and will if you come to visit!).
look how beautifully rich and stylish this packaging is, from the satin ribbon to the font choice. accessible flavors like white chocolate key lime, espresso and chai tea, in addition to the superior traditional truffle, set the standard and tone for quite a delicious and memorableÂ experience. and do i need to tell you that these little pieces of joy feel like silk on the tongue?
assorted boxes of chocolate start at $18 and can be purchased at his websiteÂ or atÂ his shops (66 water street in dumbo or 350 hudson at king in manhattan). enjoy!
