NY Mag recently profiled 7 local chocolatiers in anticipation of Valentine’s Day and we have 3 of them in the store (Nunu, Fine & Raw and Vere) for your Valentine’s pleasure.
We’ve previously profiled Vere and Nunu and are tasting them in the Brooklyn wine store tonight from 5-7pm along with some port wines from New York, California and, of course, Portugal. Fine & Raw is a new addition to our chocolate lineup. Handmade in Brooklyn and sweetened with agave, they are ideal for your vegan valentine. Dense and intense, they will also please a meat-eatin’ sweetie.
Save the Date! Daniel Sklaar, the maker of Fine & Raw, will visit Greene Grape Provisions on February 20 from 6-8 pm to provide tastes of his remarkable chocolates.
The most recent Edible Manhattan has a great article on Vere chocolate, which we carry at Provisions. Our favorite right now is the espresso and anise bar – it’s like ordering a chocolate torte, an espresso and a sambuca all at once and is a perfect healthy after-dinner treat. Made in their Manhattan factory, it is certified organic, vegan, gluten free and contains no preservatives.
Vere is part of the bean-to-bar movement that encourages ethical trade in selecting its ingredients. To read the entire Edible Manhattan article, click here.
