I was at the Salon show last Fall in LA, as I'm a pastry chef at a high end Philly hotel, so I went with our Exec. and the F&B head. There were so many amazing new Chocolatiers out there, but I felt compelled to mention another awesome Chocolatier out here on the East Coast named Derry Church Artisan Chocolates. The Chef's name is Eric Cayton, and he did a function for us at our hotel, this guy is amazing, he is doing some truly phenominal chocolates! VERY VERY premium bon bons, people check them out online!
