TCHO New American Chocolate — another great reason to visit San Francisco

Doreen Pendgracs

Known throughout the Web as the "Wizard of Words", I've been a freelance writer since 1993. I'm currently researching and writing volume II of "Chocolatour: A Quest for the World's Best Chocolate". Volume I was published in September, 2013.

    This is another chocolate store that I MUST go see. I do like the flavor possibilities. I think I’ll need to make day of chocolate touring. Wouldn’t that be fun? :-)

      Absolutely, Susan! That’s what Chocolatour is all about. Seeking out fine chocolate in every place you go. And, WOW! You have some really great chocolate in your part of CA. Lucky you! Enjoy, and may your coming week of Thanksgiving celebrations be filled with joy.

    Personally keep on being amazed at the variety of chocolates. It makes sense but most of us never give it a thought. We just buy chocolate that we like. The science behind is however fascinating and I learn a lot from you Doreen.

      What I’m trying to do in Chocolatour is educate people about chocolate, encourage them to travel the world and explore the world of cacao and fine chocolate, and to try different flavours and varietals of chocolate that they never even knew existed. It is even more sumptuous than the world of fine wine, and it’s my job to get the word out!

      Hi Cheryl: Yes, that’s what I like about chocolate. It has so many different and distinct personalities. If you want fun, there are chocolate makers who will most appeal to you. If you want sensuous and exotic, there are chocolatiers who are best skilled to titillating your senses. I have an entire chapter in my book on this.

  4. I love the thought behind the packaging of the chocolate. These are playful and fun, but sometimes the packaging is so elegant, it’s comes like a gift. It’s not just the packaging that demonstrates a wide variety of approaches either. When I read your posts I always think you must be a brilliant note taker because I don’t know how you can recall not just the different types of chocolate but the very different philosophies and focus the different producers utilize.

      Thanks very much for your vote of confidence, Debra. I’ve been a journalist for over 20 years, so the art of note-taking has become second nature. I find taking pics also helps revive the memory and keep the facts straight.
