By Leeann Froese It’s Saturday – that means it’s time to introduce you to a new personality #withTownHall. This does not mean they work as part of our team, or are our client (although sometimes they are). We just interact with so many amazing people that we want to expand networks and introduce them to you, and you to them.
This week we introduce you to Dominique and Cindy Duby . Can you please say hello?
Dominique and Cindy Duby are world-acclaimed chocolatiers and owners of DC Duby Wild Sweets. They have won many international gold and silver medals and have written various critically-acclaimed recipe books such as Wild Sweets Chocolate: Sweet, Savoury, Bites, Drinks, Crème Brulee and Wild Sweets: Exotic Dessert and Wine pairing.
They regularly work with food scientists to research, develop, and implement techniques to create new tastes and textures that improve the palette of flavours which they offer.
After years of being direct-to-customer only, in time for the holidays they are opening a retail pop-up at their Atelier.
At The Atelier you'll find a small retail counter that offers you a range of truffles and filled chocolates, special barks, hot chocolate, as well as the Dubys' cook books, granola, assorted pralines, caramels and other luscious bits to go.
Behind the counter, get a peek at the Dubys' chocolate lab; it's like a mad science lab of equipment, where they create bean-to-bar vintage chocolate, molecular gastronomy flavour infusions and other interesting applications that lead to some truly unique and amazing flavour combinations.
Examples of these unique flavour combinations include a Parmesan tomato olive mendiant bark, basil leaf infused strawberry fruit ganache, or a cane sugar caramel ganache & Hazelnut praliné cream? These are just a few of unique flavours, but I have to also mention the coconut curry or ancho chili pralines.
They have vintage bean-to-bar house made bars and flavoured chocolate bars, which make great treats and a very affordable luxury for a stocking stuffer or hostess gift.
Open Fridays 3-7pm Saturdays 10-5:30 Sundays 12-5 and by appointment and open 24/7 at WildSweets.com
Now back to Dominique and Cindy - the masterminds behind this all...
