| Vosges Haut-Chocolat @ New York |
Go there listening to Happy Up Here – Röyksopp
Created by Katrina Markoff who trained at ‘Le Cordon Bleu’, Vosges Haut-Chocolat offers a great variety of products from truffles to chocolate bars (exotic AND delicious) to candles, pancake mixtures, gift sets, t-shirts (!) etc. Founded in Chicago, the brand has two boutiques in New York, one on Upper East Side and another in Soho. If you happen to be stopping over in the city, or just wandering around Soho, it’s really worth visiting.
Their products really are the result of in depth research in terms of affinity of flavours and excellent quality. The staff are certainly very American, but, for once, throw reticence out the door and try everything they suggest. You will for sure be happy up there.
Most importantly, don’t go home before tasting some of their truffles – amongst my favourites are:
_ balsamico: dark chocolate, balsamic vinegar, hazelnuts
_ sale del mare: dark chocolate, caramel, sea salt
_ red fire: dark chocolate, ceylan cinnamon, thick Mexican chipotle chillies
_ oaxaca: Tanzanian chocolate, pumpkin seeds
And don’t forget some exotic candy bars:
_ mo’s milk chocolate bacon candy bar: milk chocolate, bacon
_ blood orange caramel exotic candy bar: dark chocolate, blood orange, campari
_ amalfi exotic candy bar: white chocolate, lemon zest, pink peppercorns
