EHChocolatier is a small independently owned artisan chocolate and confection company in Somerville, MA. They share a building with Taza!
The kitchen doors officially opened in November, 2010. Co-founders and chocolatiers, Elaine Hsieh and Catharine Sweeney, started their chocolate adventures by sharing bonbons and confections with friends and family after they met in the Spring of 1999.
A mutual friend threw them together to bake her wedding cake (their first) and had them deliver it to Martha’s Vineyard (which was hot). Although they do still speak to this mutual friend (wedding success!), their friendship with each other has deepened as they work side by side to cultivate a strong mutual passion.
EHChocolatier doesn’t make chocolate from scratch; however, they do create deliciousness and beauty. Their chocolates are all handmade in small batches with attention to every ingredient and a great deal of care.
While visiting their kitchen, we sampled and watched the construction of their Ancho Bar – spiced nuts and pretzels blended into a Balvenie Scotch caramel and enrobed with a 65% single varietal chocolate. Yum!
