Dallas Food ran an interesting article on Noka Cholocate, finding them a poor value at best. It’s an interesting article to read. If you are looking for great chocolate, I recommend, Jacques Torres. His chocolates are very, very good. The article discusses how most chocolatiers use chocolate sourced from other producers to make their candies. However, as distinct from what the article states, Jacques Torres also makes chocolate from beans as well as using chocolate from other sources for bon-bons (or truffles).
Thanks to Jason for the article!
