Elegant Simplicity Of Pure Flavor
Fran’s pursuit of the extraordinary is baked into her confections . Her chocolates are sublime and her hand packaging itself is a delicious celebration. A feast for all your senses.
A visit to Paris in 1970 inspired Fran’s European-like passion for the elegant simplicity of pure flavors. She opened her first patisserie and chocolate shop in Seattle in 1982 as an ode to her philosophy of joie-de-vivre. Many confections later, she has been credited for sparking the artisan chocolate renaissance in the United States, and is one of the most celebrated chocolatiers in the nation.
Fran’s pursuit of joy is the touchstone of her work. From the way her chocolates are presented in the gorgeous gift boxes to savoring the first bite of one of her creations, each element is truly infused with love, care, and celebration.
