The Seriously Good Chocolate Factory
It helps to have chocolate in the family. We began with family recipes perfected by my grandfather, once Mayor of Hokitika, an historic township and weather-beaten port on the South Island's dramatic West Coast. He had a chocolate business there. And there would be little forgiveness for a poor flavour in those wild days. What else is important? More than anything, it's having people who share your dreams. The people you work with. The people, our customers, for whom a chocolate truffle should be no ordinary experience. Everyone needs someone appreciative that they can feed a little chocolate to. Keeping it just this side of obsession .So what makes an unforgettable chocolate? Maybe you'll travel this way sometime to find out.
