Great New York Times article featuring Gina’s Chocolate Truffles, Cocobel and Delft Cocoa Estates
The 15th Annual Chocolate Show is taking place today and all weekend at The Metropolitan Pavilion in the Chelsea section of New York City. Top Chef, Zac Young inaugurated the event with an unforgettable sticky bun dubbed Morning Delight. The result was a glorious breakfast brioche bun layered in chocolate, bacon, hazelnuts, and finished with melting caramelized chocolate and a hint of Maldon salt (!!)… Needless to say it was otherworldly good…
In between appearances at sexy chocolate events and concocting pastry desserts, the executive pastry chef is here, there, and everywhere with birthday cakes and of course, holiday events. No rest for the fiercely delicious tastemaker.
Other notables included Lady Chocolat who’s on display in all her fine glory. The art of chocolate fashion was light this year with only one gown made of edible chocolate leaves and vines. Hurricane Sandy made it difficult for many participants to make it for opening day. However, the show is on all weekend. The lineup is really amazing with interesting discussions, new forms of chocolate making, and unique artisanal blends on hand.
Cosquelle Totally Espresso Totes
Totally Espresso truffles for Just Food’s Let Us Eat Local. The annual event, held this year at The Altman Building in Chelsea, celebrates food producers and manufacturers in the New York City area. This Cosquelle delight is a ganache of D’Amico Italian dark roast espresso, rum and cinnamon enrobed in semi-sweet chocolate and is nut-free.
