Throughout the last four centuries the Netherlands have played a critical role in ushering cocoa towards its modern status as the world’s favorite sweet indulgence. Shortly after cocoa was introduced to Europe from the Americas, Dutch merchants became involved in its distribution and by the 18th century controlled virtually the entire cocoa bean market. Renowned as the most important cocoa port in the world, a vibrant cocoa industry emerged in Amsterdam eventually resulting in several key industry developments. Most notable among these was the invention of the cocoa press that allowed fat to be removed from cocoa, resulting in the first production of cocoa powder. The Dutch Process of alkalization was another important discovery that reduced the natural acidity of cocoa powder making it more suitable for certain applications. Today, the Netherlands remain the world’s largest importer of cocoa beans and are considered a major consumer of luxury European chocolates.
zChocolat prides itself on incorporating only the finest ingredients alongside its famous French chocolate. Careful sourcing and selective purchasing have led to the delightful marriage of flavors like our Madagascar bourbon vanilla ganache drenched in Venezuelan dark chocolate as well as our crunchy combination of caramelized pistachios and Piedmont hazelnuts wrapped in smooth milk chocolate. Known for their rich nutty flavor, Dutch sesame seeds take the spotlight in one of our most requested recipes. The Chocolate No. 12, also affectionately referred to as the “Secret D’alcove”, features a surprising blend of Dutch sesame seeds and Valencia almond praline coated in a pure West African milk chocolate couverture. Pleasantly crumbly with just the right amount of sweetness, the No. 12 brings together one of the Netherlands’ agricultural jewels with the best of fine French chocolate. And like all of Master Chocolatier Pascal Caffet’s mouthwatering creations, the No. 12 is made using only pure, never-blended cocoa butter, resulting in velvety textures and intense chocolate flavor.
No mention of the Netherlands is complete without acknowledging their world famous gardens. Known as the “Flower Shop of the World.” the Netherlands are nearly synonymous with beautiful bulbs, especially tulips. Aalsmeer, located near Amsterdam, is a dizzying whirlwind of vibrant colors as it plays host to the largest flower auction in the world, while a flower festival each spring and a traditional flower parade on Amsterdam’s famous canals complete the postcard perfect image of Holland in bloom. This appreciation for beauty extends into their gift-giving attitudes. Deeply sensitive of the etiquette of reciprocity, the Dutch tend to avoid overly large or ostentatious gifts. But what Dutch gifts may lack in size they tend to make up for in elegance and meaning. With products ranging from delightfully personal 4-piece chocolate boxes up to astounding treasure troves filled with more than 500 pieces of chocolate, zChocolat has the perfect gourmet gifts no matter the occasion. And thanks to an abundance of artisanal details, no matter how big or small your selected gift you can rest assured that it will be a beautiful addition to any event.
zChocolat has become a favorite option as Dutch consumers prepare for Saint-Nicholas Day each winter. Accounting for nearly half of the Netherlands’ annual chocolate purchases, this pre-Christmas holiday is named for the patron saint of youth and is characterized by a sense of whimsical joy as children eagerly await presents from Sinterklaas and family and friend find excuses to exchange seasonal gifts. Making the moment even more magical is simple if you choose to share something special from zChocolat.
