Growing up on the Mediterranean Sea, proprietor Jean Pierre remembers the almond and pistachio trees in his back yard. He and his brothers would pick the nuts right off the tree and eat them fresh or bring them home where his mother would roast them. There were always fresh nuts in the house and fresh ingredients that made up their meals. When he came to the U.S. he brought his passion for food with him and has been serving in all facets of the food industry for 30+ years. Dedicated to his craft, Jean Pierre selects from only the finest ingredients for his handmade chocolates and serves only freshly roasted nuts, bringing tradition and elegance to his products made for all occasions.

What is a truffle?
The other legend is that the chocolate truffle was created by accident in the kitchen of master French culinary artist Auguste Escoffier in the 1920’s. One day, as his apprentice was attempting to make a standard pastry cream, he accidentally poured the hot cream into a bowl of chocolate chunks rather than the bowl of sugared egg he should have aimed for. The mixture began to harden and he found that he could work this chocolate paste (ganache!) into balls, which he then rolled in cocoa powder. After they were coated in cocoa, he was surprised by their resemblance in appearance to the luxurious black truffle fungus from the French Périgord region and the Piedmont region of Italy.
Today we have many variations of flavors in the ganache and types of coatings and decoration. Whatever the story, the result is delicious!
