A world-renown chocolatier that started and is stilled located in the Bay Area. This is an upscale and completely delectable chocolate – one of my favorites Joseph Schmidt, the originator of the oval shaped truffle is known for creating all sorts of shapes, and building all sorts of things with chocolate., His innovative and artistic expression in chocolate is world-renowned. Signature pieces include half-eggs (with a alternate flavor “yolk”), toy soldiers, bunnies, bears, Santas – if it can be made of chocolate the Schmidt has done it! He stills loves to make chocolate even today, and strives to create new and exciting designs. Who doesn’t love chocolate?
