Jacques Torres is a true artist when it comes to his chocolate truffles. They are 'ta die fawh' as is his lightly spiced hot chocolate. A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of visiting his kitchen and store in Brooklyn, New York.
Another genius chocolatier, Joel Durand, has his culinary workshop in St. Remy de Provence. His work surpasses even the remarkable Torres. I had the good fortune of making regular visits to Durand's shop while living near by in Aix-en-Provence. Both can be located on the Culinary Compass Map.
This is a short video of Monsieur Torres taking you on a tour of his kitchen. A must watch for any of you who are chocolate lovers. Below the video are photos I took on my recent visit.
