The word “artisanal” gets thrown around recklessly these days—so much so that it’s tempting to throw up your hands and say it no longer has any meaning. But chefs Matt Silverman and Matt Piekarski are making chocolate in the fashion of true artisans. They travel to countries close to the equator to select cocoa beans, which they import and use to create different varieties of dark chocolate. The difference in each nation’s product is amazing. And because all of their chocolates contain between 70 and 74 percent cacao—and no other ingredient except coconut palm sugar—they actually qualify as health food under FDA standards.
