Christmas chocolates. Classic gifting

Chocolate.
A casual, or elegant luxury anytime–but especially
at holiday time. Whether for gifting, or sharing.  Whether a specialty menu or an intermezzo or thank you bon bon.
Here’s some holiday best from some of the finest chocolatiers on either coast.
Recchiuti
One of San Francisco’s finest confectioners since 1997.
From their signature holiday collection: Northern Lights
Eight pieces of Burnt caramel chocolate adorned with the delicate signs of winter and the holidays. This collection features eight pieces of our signature Burnt Caramel Chocolate, a dark, smoky caramel blended with extra-bitter chocolate ganache enrobed in pure bittersweet chocolate.
Payard
For over 14 years François Payard has made the Bûche de Noël one of New York’s most cherished holiday traditions. Featuring several decadent selections this season, including this signature confection: Bûche de Noël – Cassis Chestnut 
This year’s special buche has a tart and sweet cassis cremeux that is harmoniously combined with jewels of poached cassis and fragrant vanilla pound cake and is enveloped in a silken chestnut mousse.
Fabulous?  Manhattan delivery only.
