Vosges Haut-Chocolat

I discovered Vosges Haut-Chocolat creations a few weeks back when I was on Armitage (951 W Armitage) and could not resist buying a few pieces to bring home.

Like all high-quality chocolates, these were meant to be slowly savored to the last experience of incredible flavor.

Owner Katrina Markoff was trained in Paris at Le Cordon Bleu and improved her art through extensive travel. Beginning in Spain at the famed El Bulli restaurant, she traveled and studied the local cuisines of just about every place in the world.

Wouldn’t that be the dream job - traveling around the world to discover the pleasures of chocolate? I want that job!

I believe that travel can put you on the fast track to learning just about anything. In fact, almost everything I’ve learned in my life that has really stuck has been when I was traveling.

Bon Appetit!
