In Hollywood, the air is thick with Oscar prep so I got downtown earlier this week to scope out the chocolate situation.
JKC signature truffle fudge is basically fudge covered in Callebaut and topped with sea salt. Unique, decadent, and delicious! Take a look at the full post for pictures, tasting, and the full story:Continue

Plastics play a part in every phase of food production and preparation so they couldn’t possibly be harmful right? You might be surprised. Recent health controversies have spawned new discussions about the safety of plastics in the food industry, especially linked to the potential health risks from Bisphenol A (BPA), a common chemical used in food packaging. Environmental scientists (Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health) warn that non-food grade plastics may be transmitting…Continue

In a previous post I wrote about the two most famous chocolatiers in Amsterdam. Yesterday I focused on a far less known chocoholic place in this city on my blog: Van Velze's. The chocolaterie and patisserie was founded by Robbert van Velze and Deborah Kilroy more than 5 years ago, but remains one of the less known chocolate place in Amsterdam. This might be due to its location in Amsterdam Oost, which…Continue
Although devoid of those grand and fancy eye candy decors its sheer simplicity makes you more focused on the essence of what chocolate is. A centerpiece of chocolate display but it was a cornucopia of the festival's uniqueness with their…Continue

Thirty years ago I planted 1200 cacao trees on our small farm near the southern Pacific coast of Costa Rica (bought before the ridiculous present land prices!). That was 1984, but some 10 years later the Monilia fungus moved in and we were losing most of the crop. Before the monilia we were producing about 1000 kilos per year. I was back in the US working and trying to save some money, and my "caretaker/thief" abondoned it.
Returning permanently to my farm 6…Continue
I looked a little more into cacao genetics, so here are some thoughts on this issue as posted on my blog. Let me know what you think...
When entering the world of high-quality chocolates you immediately get confronted with a number of categories in order to understand or classify a chocolate. There is the technical aspect of the chocolate manufacturer: roasting, conching, adding cocoa…

I plan on buying pre-made truffle shells for my truffles. I'm not sure which ones to get since everyone I talk to has different brands.
What do you guys think about Chocoduc truffle shells?
Also, I seen Keller, Callebaut, and Pastry 1 (Paris Gourment brand) ----> any thoughts on these as well?
Is there really a difference and does it matter which one to get? Do people typically focus just on…Continue

Amsterdam is a beauty, no doubt about that. But it is clearly no chocolate celebrity like Paris or Brussels. In a way that's a shame (after all it got the biggest cocoa harbor in the world). However, as already mentioned on this site quite some time ago, things are getting better and better. Selflessly, I hence decided to give Amsterdam candy makers and chocolatiers a try and blog about…Continue
