New York's Finest
C&M Chocolatier epitomizes everything I love about New York from the success story to the diversity of flavor. Founder Chris Martorano started cleaning floors in a chocolate factory at the age of fourteen, nowadays he makes his own handmade chocolate. Each flavor is a brilliant nod to New York's East Village neighborhood and its wide variety of foods and flavors. I can't quite decide which is my favorite. I savored them all very slowly. The Peanut Butter Pretzel is amazing, a gianduja truffle rolled in crushed, salted pretzels YUM! The Black Sesame Tahini which features a sesame tahini filling flavored with honey and black sesame seeds was a fantastic taste experience. The Truffle truffle is a foodie's paradise featuring 70% dark chocolate ganache infused with white truffle oil. Put simply, this chocolate rocks! As Martorano is the new kid on the block, you can say you were one of the first in the know. I think he's about to blow way up!

This is one of the inspiring stories and delicious posts. Hardly there's any people like Chris Martorano, who can come out from such level. If there's any then they go pretty high like Chris.

I'll try his stuffs if available in our local stores.

Thanks
Elena
