Our chocolate philosophy
Combinations and taste journeys: Ingredients are combined to give a full chocolate flavour experience – often with the focus on the specific chocolate used in the piece; be it La Dalia or O’Payo from Friis-Holm, Esmaraldas or Virunga from Original Beans or Red Mayan from Xoco.
Often combinations of berries, spices and herbs give a “flavour journey” to the piece – from chocolate to sweetness to acidity to richness and back to chocolate. For instance in the Blackberry Tarragon or the Blueberry Rosemary. Other times it’s a unique ingredient such as the raw juices from Frederiksdal Cherrywine or the special made organic apple syrup from Fra Fejø.
This is us
Peter Svenningsen – gastronomic chocolate nerd
Award-winning chocolatier Peter Svenningsen constantly strives for the ultimate chocolate experience. Seeking to promote and accentuate the divine nuances of good chocolate, he is innovative and uncompromising both in his selection of ingredients and in his craftsmanship.
Every piece is carefully designed to satisfy both visually and in taste. With an uncompromising approach to raw ingredients, the artisanal chocolates are pure, simple, and exceptional. For many years, the production of handcrafted artisanal chocolates was a hobby preserved for friends and family. However, Peter was convinced to submit his chocolate to the International chocolate awards and won gold – world’s best chocolate.
Jakob Ørstrup – foodie, artisan & culinary innovator
With his uncompromising approach, Jakob Ørstrup always seeks to unleash the full flavour potential of any of the carefully selected ingredients he works with. An insatiable gastronomic curiosity and fearless play with food characterizes Jacob, and he is not afraid to break with traditional cuisines and conventions in the art of cooking. An approach to gastronomy that more than once has led Jakob into the role of respected adviser to well-known chefs and renowned food companies.
Simplicity, purity & honesty characterize Jakob’s food, and since 2018, also his chocolates.
Ingredients and partnerships
We explore and seek out the best ingredients for our pieces. First and foremost of course the chocolates. But also the finest waters, fruits and fruit produce. From likeminded adventurers in gastronomy or homegrown…
We take great care in finding and using the best chocolate we can find. For us, chocolate is simply not just chocolate. Its not just using “good dark chocolate”. We are proud to say who and what we use. Every chocolate maker uses time and energy in making some of the worlds best chocolate. So when we make our pieces, we strive to combine the right chocolate with the right ingredients. This is why we don’t just use a single dark chocolate. And the hunt for good chocolate is part of our journey, so that we also can expand our horizons. The O’Payo from Friis-Holm for the Inland Ice or the La Dalia for our Olive oil pieces. Our new Blackberry Terragon is smooth with Virunga from Original Beans. Or using Tien Giang 80% from Marou for the acidity of the apples for the Apple Infusion piece.
Ingredients are acquired from trusted partners with the same mindset when it comes to quality in produce: World class chocolate from Friis-Holm, unique salts from Icelandic Saltwerk; soft, sweet, organic birch sap from Voss Distilery in Iceland; refined cherry juice from Frederiksdal Kirsebærvin, coldbrewed coffee from Ayoola and the purest, smooth water from esteemed gourmet water supplier Inland Ice.
Collaboration between producers is vital to producing high quality end products. We take great care to ensure that we only work with the best – the innovative seekers of perfection – who share our values and beliefs regarding quality, fair trade and sustainability
