Live by Love Flavors

Tradition - Harvey Wallbanger - A tribute to my grandfather’s Harvey Wallbanger cake, which always brought together family and laughter in our New York City home. Made with the zest of fresh oranges and Galliano Liqueur, this flavor gives subtle notes of citrus blended with herbs from the spirit. The name tradition honors the melting pot of cultures in the US especially New York where family traditions are held so dear. Pair with Glenfiddich Scotch Whiskey and Délice de Bourgogne Cheese. The sweet orange notes in the truffle work seamlessly with this triple cream and balances the sweet oak flavor from the whiskey.
Sanctuary - Ginger/ Turmeric/ Black Pepper - Influenced by the peace and divinity I found while exploring the temples in Kyoto and throughout India, these intense yet subtle flavors balance and calm the body. Ginger, turmeric, and black pepper are great natural anti-inflammatories that also add a nice spiciness to chocolate. I encourage you to incorporate these healing spices in your favorite recipes. Pair with a fruity and spicey red wine like Le Grand Cros, a blend of Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon (2014), and a Young Taleggio Cheese. They accentuates the savory spices of ginger, turmeric, and black pepper in the chocolate.
Goddess - Hibiscus/ Mint - These two flavors awaken memories of visits to the pyramids of Cairo and learning about ancient female rulers of Egypt. Hibiscus, known for its refreshing effects on the body, is accented with sweet mint. While frequenting Egypt during my corporate career, I tasted hibiscus, the tea of the gods, and fresh mint in many of their local beverages. I was pleasantly surprised to learn about female pharaohs like Hatshepsut and modern day women leaders like the CEO of the factory I used to visit in the heart of Cairo. Pair with a citrus and floral white wine like Ca' di Rajo, Marca Trevigiana, Pinot Grigio (2015) and a Valencay Cheese. The floral elements in the wine bring out the hibiscus in the truffle and the citrus in the wine, cheese, and chocolate are balanced with the refreshing mint.
Puriste - Dark Chocolate - Channels the passionate and devoted love of chocolate by the French people. Every time I make a batch of Puriste, I am transported to my favorite chocolate shops in Paris where art and food meet like lovers on the Seine River. As a child, I cherished visits to Paris’ chocolatiers and patisseries with my French family. This flavor invokes the happiness I felt while there. Pair with a powerful yet elegant red wine blend like Massi di Mandorlaia, Maremma Toscana (2013) and young Comté Cheese. The lush blend of Sangiovese, Alicante, Merlot, Cabernet grapes accentuate the creamy ganache center and the nutty, golden cheese creates a decandent experience.
Serenity - Whiskey/ Sea Salt - The rich mingling flavors of whiskey and savory sea salt recall my visits to Cork in Ireland, where I first fell in love with my father’s heritage. Salt opens your palate for the sweet grain character and vanilla from the Bushmill Whiskey. When I close my eyes and think of ireland, I can still smell the fresh air and feel the revitalizing breeze of the lush island’s countryside. Pair with Donatien Bahuand, Chinon Les Boires (2014) mellow oak red wine and St.Agur Blue Cheese. The savory chocolate bring out the woody and fruity aromas in both the wine and the cheese.
