In 1997, Michael and Jacky founded Recchiuti Confections. Their idea: when you introduce people to truly exquisite chocolates they will be won over instantly and forever. They make their chocolates exquisite by painstakingly selecting each ingredient, like bundles of fresh lavender and tarragon from the farmer's market. They use traditional European equipment, but Recchiuti goes beyond taste and technique. Their chocolates feature drawings, etchings, and paintings that tell the story of this couple's extraordinary, and full, life.
