I don't want to start off complaining. So let me list the positive things about the "best chocolatier in Los Angeles," L'Artisan du Chocolat.
~ Homeboy is French
~ The sweetness is understated, not over the top
~ The designs on the top of his chocolates are tres chic
~ The flavors are inventive and fun
The problem? My dearest bought me a little sampling box with flavors I'd love. $14 bucks for 4 chocolates and a pilgrimage to Silverlake later, I have made you a little list of what I ate, and what it tasted like:
I'm cool with the sweetness being understated, but not the flavors. I want to taste that wasabi mango, the bacon, all of it. No one wants to shell out for bland ganache and waxy chocolate, no matter how pretty it is. Good day sir!
