The Posh Cocoa Affairs

Cocoa

 

Had there been no chocolates the whole idea of living would have been collapsed for most. They say it’s either Belgian or the Swiss that rule over the existence and life of chocolates but the thing I claim on is chocolates have descended from the kitchen of the almighty. Belgians get their beans from Africa while Swiss get it both from Africa and Latin America yet they all stand out as the kings of chocolate making.

Few are these blessed choco maker who have crept into the list of best chocolate makers on the globe.

 

TEUSCHER

On the beautiful lands of Switzerland high on the Alps some 70 years ago Dolf Teuscher went ransacking the globe to find exotic fruits, beans, cocoa, marzipan to make his own signature sweet confectionaries. The tradition then went on to his future generations who have been carrying on the tradition well for all these years. The makers kitchen is seen in Zurich where they continue t blend in the best of ingredients to form the best chocolates. They presently prepare around more than 100 varieties of chocolates out of the best nuts and fruits. The best part being there is no added preservative or chemical. The champagne truffle still rules over its other varieties due to the fragrant champagne cream filled centre blended with the best cocoa butter and cream which is dusted with sugar and served

VOSGES-HAUT CHOCOLAT

Katrina Markoff from Chicago,illinois spilled magic all around the globe when she came up with this luxury chocolate making boutique of her own where she introduced the world class flavoured specially designed chocolates inspired by her adventure travel times then in the year 1998. She went on to blend the Mexican chillies with cinnamon and dark cocoa which marked a big trend in history of chocolate making. The black pearl chocolate she made with ginger, black sesame seeds, wasabi and dark chocolates were no less a superhit and her most special experiments with bacon marked a new era of chocolate making.

SCHARFFEN BERGER CHOCOLATE MAKER


Starting the production of small scale south san Francisco chocolate in Berkeley now they have been completely taken up by The Hershey Company in the year 2005 yet the originality persists. They were the first in world to proudly mention the composition and content of cocoa in the chocolate label which would indicate the pure bitter chocolate flavour of the bar which is now common. Main ingredients of making chocolates were Venezuelan criollo beans and whole Tahitian vanilla which would be blended with fresh picked best cocoa from places over the globe. They would pick beans of cocoa only from trusted and selected growers and transform those delicate beans into amazing chocolate bars by using techniques of conching, to roasting, tempering and molding thereby making outstanding chocolates.

NORMAN LOVE CONFECTIONS


They have been spreading the proper love for chocolate from Florida via its founder and chief chef Norman Love who worked as an pastry chef with Ritz-Carlton in 1988-2001. Love would use techniques to craft coloured designs for each chocolate candy and airbrush them into molds which would then involve a lot of passion and love in giving a fine finish to the chocolate. The chocolates are usually filled with Belgian cocoa and cream thus making it yet more rare and delicious.
