To my customers and Fleur de Sel fans:
If you’ve tried the Fleur de Sel bar that you purchased at a farmer’s market recently and found it to be super-salty, it’s not because I changed the recipe. It’s because I must have accidentally doubled up on the salt! Please come and see me at the market to exchange your bar for a fresh one. If you’ve already eaten it or given it away as a gift, I’ll still be happy to give you another one. I’ll be at Callingwood Market October 7th and then I’ll be at the City Hall market for the winter season. Sorry for the inconvenience. I’ll be handing out extra treats for your troubles. My apologies, and thanks for your support!
Here is some good news for Chocophilia lovers in Edmonton! The long wait is over. Your favorite Chocophilia bars and other Chocophilia products are once again available, fresh and delicious as ever.
The Chocophilia Line
After shutting down the shop in April, I approached my sister, Angie, about the possibility of continuing to make the bars herself. Angie was with me in the kitchen from the very beginning in 2005 when we first developed the bar flavors and started producing them in a downtown condo for our first wholesale customers. After careful consideration, Angie has decided to carry on the line, but on a smaller scale that better suits her situation (she has two little ones). We made chocolate together this summer, went over all the key recipes, and I am very certain that she can make all of your favorite Chocophilia products perfectly. Over the last month or so, she has been busy making bars, cocoa nib caviar, hot chocolate and other confections with the goal of selling them at farmer’s markets around the city. I am so excited to see Angie grab the baton and run with it!
Sales restart this week!
Angie and your favorite Chocophilia products will be at the Highlands Farmer’s Market
(112th Ave and 65th St), TONIGHT, Thursday Sept. 20th
from 7pm to 9pm and at the Callingwood Farmer’s Market (69th Ave and 178th St.) this Sunday, Sept 23rd from 10am to 3pm. She will do a repeat appearance the next week: Highlands on Thursday Sept. 27th (7pm to 9pm) and Callingwood on Sunday, October 7th (10am to 3pm).
So where is Kerstin?
Thank you everyone who has been following my global adventures on the blog. I promise to continue writing and to keep you posted on my chocolate discoveries here in Germany. Right now I am very busy settling in and getting adjusted to living abroad. While I have no plans to begin making chocolate here on a professional basis right now, I hope to perfect the recipes that I’ve collected on my trip around the world for a book that I am writing. Please stay tuned for more on that!
Thank you all for your unwavering support,
-Kerstin (and Angie)
