Not your Mom’s chocolate shop.
It was the year 1983
Except for us, it actually was.
Our Mom opened teuscher chocolates of Switzerland in Beverly Hills at a time when finding European chocolate in America was near impossible. Her weekly shipments of Dom Perignon champagne truffles quickly gained a cult following and her shop became the go to spot for fine chocolate. In 1995, she expanded with a European-style, walk-up café and the corner grew to be a Beverly Hills institution. While Mom treated customers to the very best European truffles and pralines, we got a world-class education in chocolate.
Taking over the business from Mom, we parted ways with teuscher chocolates with the goal to reimagine fine chocolate in a more modern way. Customer tastes and expectations had changed over the years and with the American culinary arts catching up to the Europeans, it was time for our own brand of chocolate. Out went cliche gold boxes and in came modern flavors and presentations influenced by our CA roots. Our approach to sourcing was no different: seeking out transparent, sustainable and ethically produced chocolate. Does Mom approve? You bet.
Welcome to the next generation of chocolate lovers!
