Nunu Chocolates, an artisanal chocolate company based in Brooklyn, New York, will be featured as a live chocolate-making exhibit at Brachfeld Gallery in Paris this month.
From April 12 to 26, the company’s founders, husband-and-wife chocolatiers Andy Laird and Justine Pringle, along with fellow chocolatier Dave Gould, will be making truffles and caramels on location at the gallery, located at 78, rue des Archives (3rd arr).
The finished goodies, along with plenty of other chocolates, will be sold in the “pop up” store set up in the gallery’s shop.
In addition to the live demonstrations, chocolate workshops (for adults and children) will be held on Wednesdays (April 13, 20) and Saturdays (April 16, 23), and chocolate and wine pairings/tastings will be held on Thursdays (April 14, 21) and Fridays (April 15, 22).
Nunu Chocolates, a small company founded in 2007, is notably renowned for its chocolate-dipped sea salt caramels.
For its chocolates, the company uses a single-origin cacao bean derived from a Trinitario and Criollo hybrid, which it buys from a sustainable, family-run farm in eastern Colombia.
Brachfeld Gallery, opened in 2008, describes itself as “a space dedicated to art expression in all its forms.”
