INGREDIENT SOURCES

Pure, flavorful ingredients, respectfully farmed, foraged and prepared, make the recipe. We’re lucky to live in a fertile river valley in Southern Vermont, a place where organic farmers and artisanal food producers abound, acres of forests and fields yield delicious wild  edibles, and where people approach good, wholesome food as both an art and a necessity. It’s only natural that we use the most delicious and nutritious organic, locally sourced ingredients whenever possible. We continue our explorations in the kitchen by using globally sourced ingredients discovered in our travels, U.S.-sourced nuts and fruits, and locally sourced foods in exciting new combinations, all inspired by the particular flavor profile of each chocolate, carefully chosen for each recipe.

It’s important to us that our central ingredient, chocolate, not only tastes good, but does good, too. We use single origin chocolate we purchase directly from Venezuela as well as American and French made couverture sourced from South American cacao that is produced following fair trade precepts, either as cooperatives or ethically estate-run farms. Like fine wines and coffee, the people behind our couverture strive to innovate farming and processing methods to create the most delicious chocolate available.

Our bonbon recipes follow the seasons, and we formulate new flavor combinations year round as ingredients inspire us.
