Signature Chocolates

Just as fragrances are commonly customized to satisfy a client’s personal desires, chocolate can now also be created to fulfill any taste preference. The latest addition to the world of bespoke chocolatiers is Sir Hans Sloane Chocolate House in Surrey, England. Master chocolatier Bill McCarrick consults with clients to learn their preferences in a variety of spices, wines, fruits, and fillings. Next, they’re offered a tasting of different couvertures?chocolate coverings?and fillings. McCarrick creates a chocolate profile for each customer and maintains records for future orders. The 60 customized chocolates are presented in a handmade rosewood and maple inlaid box, and another 60 chocolates are held in reserve. The package, including tastings with McCarrick and two 60-count boxes, is $2,400. (www.sirhanssloane.com)
