The Chocolate Museum and Experience with Jacques Torres

Fondly referred to as Mr. Chocolate, Jacques Torres is the authority on all things related to this confectionery delight. Raised in France, Jacques fulfilled his American dream in 2000 with the opening of his first chocolate factory, Jacques Torres Chocolate in the DUMBO neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York. Jacques was a pioneer—the first artisan chocolatier to start from cocoa beans to make his own chocolate. In 2013, Jacques moved his production to a 40,000 sq. ft. chocolate manufacturing space at the Brooklyn Army Terminal in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. Jacques prides himself on specializing in fresh, hand-crafted chocolates using premium ingredients free of preservatives and artificial flavors. He has served as Executive Pastry Chef at Le Cirque for 12 years, has hosted several of his own series on Food Network & PBS as well as written three cookbooks. Additionally, since 1993 Jacques proudly serves as Dean of Pastry Arts at the award-winning International Culinary Center. He has eight retail locations throughout New York City.
