“The Galavanting Chocolatier” by Matthew D. Christianson


Steven Shaw and Jaques Torres

While working an otherwise quiet lunch service at L’Ecole (the restaurant at the International Culinary Center in SoHo) the jolly Jacques Torres and company took over the dining room today. Crashing through the door near the end of the afternoon and with only a few patrons left to take in Torres’s antics, he was trying to Save the integrity and the name of his delicious candy product (which has another candy mogul’s name) called “Kiss”. Stopping at every table to feed the guests and staff at L’Ecole, Jacques was in usual form captivating and charming everyone with his sinful delights. The pide piper of New York City’s chocolate scene is trying to gain support for retaining the name of his tastey lipstick labeled chocolate covered champagne flavored treats at: www.savejacqueskiss.com. Amazing energy from a man who seems to have been leading the charge in candy forever! Bravo Jacques keep it coming!
