The AMANO Blog One of the things I have always found most wonderful about chocolate is how unlike it is from so many other foods: it reaches in and touches a person’s soul. Few foods do that, and none that I’m aware of do so so completely. Because of this, I have had some incredible experiences. People of all walks of life tell me what a profound impact our chocolate has had on them and how much they love that experience. (or love the chocolate?) The same goes for some well-known chefs whom I have admired from afar for years.
While visiting Paris, I visited Pierre Herme’s amazing pastry shop on rue bonaparte. I purchased over $70 of pastries to take back to my hotel. Upon returning to my tiny room, I tasted his raspberry rose cheesecake. I wore. A simple “oh my, thats good” was simply insufficient. Since then, I have striven to create that same experience for each and every person who tastes our handcrafted chocolates. This raspberry rose bar is my homage to this experience.
