Calling All Chocoholics in NYC - Travel the World through Chocolate

"Take chocolate in order that even the most tiresome company seems acceptable to you." Madame de Sevigne

Named one of the 10 Best Chocolatiers in the World by National Geographic, Vosges Chocolate House on Spring Street New York was a fantastic discovery. 

I have always been an advocate of real chocolate, and by this I mean something high in cocoa content. Ever since I visited cocao plantations in rural Ghana and tried Fairtrade, high cocoa content chocolate, I have struggled to find something authentic and not overly sweet.

 I finally found this in Vosges, called “THE innovator in chocolate to lead the US through the next 30 years” by Food & Wine Magazine

This ethical and experimental chocolate house prides itself on sourcing only the finest ingredients.

This purple paradise is a fusion of the best chocolate recipes brought together from across the world. These chocolate creations are daring and innovative. 

From black salt caramel to bacon truffle, these surprising combinations are sharp and elegant. 

The Parisienne Couture Cocoa Single hot chocolate is made of Madagascar vanilla bean pieces with dark chocolate. This thick, rich, deep cocoa hot chocolate is to be drunk in tiny sips. It reminds me of the thick hot chocolate you get in Spain to be eaten with churros. 

This shop is quirky and yet classy. The staff are extremely knowledgable, helpful and friendly. Ask them anything, they will help.
