Having given the misses heart shaped boxes of See's and Godiva one too many times over the years, I am interested in presenting her with something a bit finer (and a bit more exotic) this year.
Having done a bit of research, I've come to understand that Neuhaus chocolates/truffles are considered by some to be among the very finest (some would say THE finest) in the world. I've also read very positive reviews for Teuscher, Leonidas, and Valrhona. I know Leonidas has a few southland locations scattered about - there's one in Santa Monica and one in Pasadena that I know of.. but the nearest Neuhaus stores I could find are in San Francisco and Seattle!
Does anyone know of a retailer in LA that sells Neuhaus? And if you happen to know where I can find Valrhona and Teuscher, that'd be grand, too!
Thanks a bunch!
PS - Also tell me which chocolatier is your favourite (and where to find it in LA).
