Our proprietary chocolate is crafted specifically to support the ingredients we infuse with it to achieve a taste experience matching the storytelling. Our 72% cacao dark chocolate is one of our most intense and has a deep roasted vegetation, dried fruit and a touch of tart berry notes. Our 45% cacao deep milk chocolate is a roasted cacao with a dense caramel profile that is achieved through the caramelization of roller dried, whole milk during the conching process.
At the heart of our mission is creating luxury chocolate collections with responsibility to the environment that sustains our earth. We have been sourcing Fair Trade or Rainforest Alliance certified cacao for over 15 years. We are powered by 100% renewable energy and abide by a green purchasing of procuring only post-consumer recycled board and biodegradable materials. Our kitchen exclusively uses Organic cream and sugar.
"My first truffle collection, the birth of Vosges®, and the origin of Travel the World through Chocolate™ lies within the Exotic Truffle Collections. After returning from Le Cordon Bleu in Paris and a trip around the world, I began to use chocolate as my medium to recount the adventures of my travels. After you unravel the purple bow, the wanderlust begins…where do you want to go? Nagaland is vibrant with curry, macadamia nuts beckon to Australia. Relish in Chinese star anise, reminiscent of the forbidden green absinthe of days long past. Open your senses and experience the culture, take a bite and imagine what it is like to stand on the streets of Shanghai. Milk, white or dark chocolate first? I suggest starting with white, but break the rules and follow your instincts. Be a rolling stone…."
peace, love + chocolate
Named after one of my favorite pastry chefs at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris who loved to use ‘un peu plus de kirsch.’ This exquisite clear cherry brandy is crafted by the Schladerer family, a 6th generation distillery originally founded in the small Kreuz-Post Inn near Germany’s historic Black Forest. Dollenseppler, Schwarze Schüttler, and Benjaminler cherries are cultivated and refined to produce a highly aromatic bouquet of cherries and almonds. Each 62% cacao dark chocolate truffle is crowned with a dried tart cherry from the Traverse Bay region in northern Michigan.
Pair with AN OLD FASHIONED COCKTAIL
I discovered this prized paprika in the town of Kalocsa in the Bács-Kiskun region of southern Hungary, which bears the name Csemege, or “Exquisite Delicacy.” Feast your eyes before turning the truffle spice side down on your tongue, then let the 62% cacao dark chocolate melt alongside the sweet spice.
Pair with CHAPOUTIER BANYULS WINE AND A FINE CIGAR
I combined lemon zest with spicy, bitter horseradish, together reflecting the social criticism inherent to the genre of rap music. We use fresh horseradish root from Harmony Valley Farm in Viroqua, Wisconsin where they have been growing organic vegetables since about the same time rap music was born. 62% cacao dark chocolate and sweet praline juxtapose the strong flavors, while Ghanaian cocoa nibs add an audible crunch.

WINK OF THE RABBIT®
Inspired by Aesop’s fable, “The Tortoise and the Hare,” there was once a speedy rabbit who bragged about how fast he could run. Overconfident in his race against the turtle, he stopped by the side of the road to “catch a few winks.” While he slept, the slow and steady turtle pulled ahead and won the race. We celebrate his triumphant victory with our carefully crafted, small batch, burnt sugar caramel, which is touched with fleur de sel from the Ile de Ré in France and encased in 45% cacao deep milk chocolate. Each truffle is hand topped with a pecan from Las Cruces, New Mexico grown by Sally Harper, a paragon who spreads the gospel of organic farming methods.
