We like reinventing traditions. Emily Snyder does too. She first found her calling as a calligrapher at New York City’s venerable stationery and design house, Mr. Boddington’s Studio. Now living and working in Los Angeles, Emily meticulously hand-numbered each box in her unique style of calligraphy. With no two boxes the same, we are certain Chef’s Box No. 1 will be cherished inside and out. Enjoy!

In with the old
In with the new
andSons is a second-generation chocolatier formed by two brothers, a renowned pastry chef and a love of
fine chocolate. Bridging the gap between old and new, andSons marries our European heritage with the
inspiration and creativity of our Los Angeles roots to reimagine the world’s most important food group.
It all started with Mom
35 years ago she began importing chocolates from Switzerland. At a time when European chocolate was still
considered exotic, she introduced customers to ganaches, gianduja and pralines. Expanding the business to
include a café, she eventually turned a little corner shop into a local institution. Growing up, her sons
learned not only an appreciation of fine chocolate but how to care for customers and community. Today,
they are proud to carry on the business by making chocolate in their own kitchen that honors past traditions
and establish new ones for the next generation.
Our brother from another mother
Joining the andSons family is chocolatier Kriss Harvey. Recently named one of America’s Top 10 Pastry Chefs,
Kriss was formerly the Executive Pastry Chef at The Bazaar by José Andrés at the SLS Hotel. With a passion
for all things chocolate, Kriss’ skills have been honed in the revered kitchens of Oriol Balaguer and
Emmanuel Ryon in France, the Ritz Carlton and the Wynn Las Vegas. The chemical formula for theobromine is
tattooed on his right arm.
andSons makes fine chocolate in limited quantities. All chocolates are made in our modern kitchen using
time-honored techniques. With some recipes calling for fifteen or more steps, Chef Kriss and his team
carefully craft each piece by hand. With an obsession for quality, we source organic, all natural
ingredients from specialty providers around the world, including our local farmer’s market.
One Passion – Two Styles
Our classic line of chocolates is based on
a French-style of confections which feature traditional flavors such as ganaches and
pralines topped with subtle decorative elements.
Our modern line showcases bold and inventive flavor pairings inside distinctive and
colorful hand-painted shells. Too pretty to eat? Never.
