Making holiday chocolates on Live From the Couch

Jacques dropped by the CBS television studios this morning to spread a little holiday cheer. Joined by the hosts of “Live From the Couch” he demonstrated a few do-it-yourself holiday chocolates everyone can do at home.

Peppermint bars one of “The Best Holiday Treats in NYC”

National Geographic’s Urban Insider, Annie Fitzsimmons, selected Jacques’ Peppermint Bark as one of “The Best Holiday Treats in NYC”.

She recently visited the Hudson Street chocolate factory on her holiday food tour. You can read about her experience here.

Our Peppermint bars are available on our store shelves, but they’re going fast!


Jacques crafts a white chocolate Christmas Tree for Saveur

Saveur magazine’s December issue features an article on white chocolate. They asked Jacques for some tips on working with the tricky confection.

An edible Christmas Tree centerpiece seemed the perfect example.

Chocolate Chip Cookies “Best Thing We Ate Last Night”

Tasting Table’s first annual Food Fight event took place in Dumbo last night. Jacques’ chocolate chip cookies represented the “chewy” cookie, while Tate’s Bake Shop represented the “crispy” cookie in a friendly battle of tastes.

Zagat’s “Best Thing We Ate Last Night” blog tapped Jacques as the “clear winner in our mind”.

We think everyone was a winner at Food Fight!

A Delicious Handbag for Mother’s Day


Purse Blog makes a good point – the only thing better than a handbag for Mother’s Day is “a delicious handbag”! We couldn’t agree more.

You can read the post in it’s entirety here. Please note, however, that while, yes, the chocolate handbags are available in-store only, they are available in all of our retail locations, not exclusively at Hudson Street.
