Chocolate perfume

Posted on December 5, 2009 at 12:15pm 0 Comments

That's it; i could not longer resists and order 3 samples of perfume (enough for 2 applications each) at $20(!) for the 3 from Mandy After. I am too curious about the cocoa perfume she has. i've heard great things about her but never tried any of her products and my meager income will not stretch to actually buy the products. So samples it will be. Has anyone of you ever worked on a chocolate fine perfume? We have a couple of times with a perfume house and always ended up with something too… Continue

Even more rewarding as every other chocolatier in UK has copied our caramels but ours still rock!

Our chocolates are in space

Posted on July 18, 2009 at 10:47am 0 Comments

A couple of months ago, one of our regular transatlantic customers paid for a large order of our dark chocolate coated candied gingers. I am proud to say that they are now traveling with her in space. Apparently food tastes less in zero gravity so the intense ginger and chocolate combination seem to be a favourite with her and the rest of the crew. How cool is that?

Are French chocolates (apart from a few) terribly overrated?

Posted on July 5, 2009 at 9:53am 4 Comments

I was in the South West of France for a few days and of course paid a visit to the local chocolate shops. All of them a great disapointment selling same things as 10 years ago (mostly pralines)and regional or house specialties bought in from Francois Doucet (potatoes, quail eggs, chocolate in shape of beans, olives etc etc). Most people used Barry Callebaut which did not help. Quality of the bonbons was poor and marshmallows were like bike tyres. Makes me wonder if French chocolates (apart from… Continue

Anne,

I have posted a comment about your company here. Clay Gordon suggested that I let you know about the post so you can respond directly.


I would love to know more about your company, where you source the liquor, is it being processed in the country where the beans are grown, what prices relative to Fair Trade are the farmers being paid for their cacao.

 

I am asking because I carry your chocolate in my Silicon Valley tasting room and part of our philosophy is to give our customers the story behind the makers. I want to be sure that I am able to answer their questions adequately before using your bars more extensively at my tastings. The more I know about the maker and their practises, the more enthusiastically and authentically I can support their work.

I would also like to carry more of your products. For now I have 4 single origins and about 4 of your fusion bars and I would like to expand that.

Thank you,

Sunita de Tourreil

Hi Anne
thanks for the invitation to your website. You'd be surprised at the uproar out there! UK and globaly. I think it is importnat to alert people of the fraud out there! May i suggest in fact linking the Chocoalte life blog on your website? This i hope will offer people an alternative to seventypercent.com.
As Obama says - its time for change!!
Good luck in your quest
Leila
