A Tale Of Two Chocolates

June 13, 2016

A chocolate maker and a chocolatier — who share space in Somerville's Aeronaut Foods Hub — show us the secrets behind their sweet crafts.

There's a lot of great chocolate coming out of Somerville right now. Whether you prefer the gritty, elemental goodness of bean-to-bar, or the decadent, silky mouth-feel and creative flavoring of a French-style confection — you can find your fix at the Aeronaut Foods Hub.  

We chatted cocoa beans with chocolate maker Eric Parkes of Somerville Chocolate, and watched chocolatier Alexandra Whisnant of Gate Commes de Filles in action as she turned out fresh truffles.

Check out their sweet stories on the first episode of our new video series, Tastemakers.
