I have heard great things about EHChocolatier for quite some time now, but had yet to experience their products first hand. It took me a while, but now I understand why everyone who enjoys quality chocolate is so excited by this maker.
The assortment of bonbons and confections available from this Somerville, MA operation are as appealing to the mouth as they are to the eye. Just one glance at any of the products offered by EHChocolatier, and you can tell you are in for a rewarding experience.
These chocolates are made with love, which gives each of them a unique glow one can see and taste. When discussing the business with Elaine Hsieh, cofounder of EHChocolatier, I inquired about her favorite product to produce and/or consume. Her response -“ Egads, that’s a difficult question to answer!” – sums up the product line and its appeal. She went on to say that “All of our products are especially delicious when they’re still a little warm and just made. I never tire of making ganaches and watching them come together through all the different stages while I’m stirring along. It’s a thing of beauty and it never gets old.” Her passion clearly carries over to the final products.
The company has future plans to open up a retail space in which they can also produce their array of products, but for now they are enjoying their current location and the success that has come along with it.
This is certainly a maker you are going to want to stop by and visit at this year’s Eat Boutique Holiday Market. The variety of products and collections (such as the Three Tea’s Box – an assortment of tea-inspired bonbons!) available will most definitely put check marks next to some names on your holiday shopping list.
