Smooth, delicate, exquisite, flavors blended in beautiful harmony, a symphony on the palate. Great Beauty and Artistry in every bite!

Michael and his wife Jacky started their confectionery shop in San Francisco. Michael’s life is filled with art, music and lots of friends, so the look of his chocolates act as a show and tell of his favorite things.

I love chocolate. I always have and I always will. I love the perfect snap of a fine chocolate bar, the tobacco notes of a rare cacao varietal and the sheen of a gorgeously enrobed confection. And because my job is not only to eat these chocolates, but to create them, I know I’m very a lucky man. 

Creating with chocolate is a wonderful alchemy of temperature, ingredients, patience and sometimes luck. It’s about inspiration and practice, practice, practice. It has been my work and passion for nearly two decades. Still each time I spread a sheet of tempered chocolate across that cool white marble slab, I learn something new. And every morning when I walk into my small San Francisco kitchen, I’m reminded of just how lucky I am. ~ Michael Recchiuti. http://www.recchiuti.com/

EAT LOVE SAVOR magazine
EAT LOVE SAVOR® has, since 2010, been more than a virtual platform and print magazine. It is an affluent lifestyle foundation for all the tiers of wealth: from mid-level to core affluent, from high net worth, to ultra high net worth. This readership desires the most clarifying, yet nuanced information on luxury travel, cuisine, home décor, jewelry, and real estate. Within our pages, the reader finds content that identifies the Zeitgeist of the affluent human experience — travels that expand awareness, cuisine that underscores and heightens the perfectibility of taste, objets d’art that exude singularity, provenance and worth. In all these, we strive to seek the meanings beyond elite, elegant, and excellent. We seek the sublime, as we experience what is beyond the horizon, with a copy of EAT LOVE SAVOR® as our guide.
