Moonstruck Chocolatier Gets Candy Cred

Moonstruck Chocolate's Chef Julian Rose -- the company’s master chocolatier and the host of our Wine and Chocolate event earlier this year -- was named to Dessert Professional magazine's first annual list of Top Ten Chocolatiers for North America! The 2009 Top Ten Chocolatiers list will be featured in the December issue of Dessert Professional magazine.   

At the Chocolate and Wine event, Chef Rose shared his knowledge from a classical pastry education and 25-year professional career, beginning with his earliest days working in his parents’ pastry shop. As Moonstruck’s Master Chocolatier, Chef Rose develops new delicious morsels and refines our existing favorites. We know we can always count on Moonstruck Chocolate for beautiful and delicious goodies, thanks to Chef Rose!

We want to extend thanks once again to Chef Rose for taking the time to teach us all so much about chocolate, and wine! It was another incredible evening at the Confectionery!

The Colder Side of Fall Calls for...

Now that fall is here (really, really here--cloud cover and all) we started thinking about all the nice warm things that give us comfort through the colder months. And of course one of the first things that came to mind was Moonstruck's incredible Mayan truffle. We carry this morsel all year, but there's no better time than a gray day to have a savory sensation from south of the border -- chocolate, almonds and cinnamon blend seamlessly to make this an excellent pairing with a morning coffee, or an afternoon cup of cocoa. (We don't believe in chocolate moderation.)
