What’s in Season: February 10, 2014

If you’re going to give chocolates this Valentine’s Day, do it right.

If you’re going the traditional Valentine’s Day route this year and giving chocolate, then why not share the good stuff?

New York state home to a host of chocolate artisans and one of our favorites is Fruition Chocolate located in Shokan, NY.

Head chocolate-maker Bryan trained at the CIA and did his externship with the city-based Jacques Torres (Edible Manhattan had the privilege going fishing with Jacques a few years back). He knows a thing or two about the ingredient, needless to say.

Check out what Fruition currently has available via Brooklyn’s Good Eggs:
