Comptoir du Cacao tastings at Zabars today and Dec 17 & 18th

Posted by Niko on December 11th, 2011

Comptoir Du Cacao is a French family run artisanal chocolate factory.

One of my favorite chocolate offerings from the New York Chocolate Show was from Comptoir du Cacao, a French, family-owned small batch chocolate factory.   The good news is Zabars is going to be carrying their chocolate going forward.  And to kick things off, they are having tastings today (Sunday, Dec 11) and on December 17 and 18th.

Chocolate Matzo update: Zabar’s takes up the slack

Posted by JK on March 28th, 2010

Still available as of March 28th, 2010

I  am hearing reports that Jacques Torres on Amsterdam is out of  large dark chocolate covered matzo so I thought I would let readers know that Zabar’s still has Ozem brand dark chocolate matzo in regular and orange flavor.  The Ozem product is not in the same class as Jacques Torres but in a pinch they’ll do, and they come all the way from Israel.  The Ozem product is real dark chocolate and the matzos underneath stay reasonably crunchy but they just aren’t as flavorful as the locally made Torres matzos.   $5.69 at Zabar’s 2245 Broadway.

I am also told that some Vosges stores still have some Dark Chocolate matzos left as well.
