Cradled by the Alps and the Jura mountains, Geneva is a city of dramatic views and rich cultural ties. Host to such international organizations as Europe’s United Nations and the Red Cross, this once sleepy village has become a major hub for business, banking, and diplomacy. It has also become a guardian to Switzerland’s epic chocolate legacy. As part of a country that boasts the highest chocolate consumption per capita in the world, while also making some of the world’s most sought after chocolate, cocoa-craft is practically considered a national birthright. And yet, as much as Geneva treasures its local candy-making industry, residents’ appetite for high quality chocolate is large enough to equally embrace other luxury chocolate brands from throughout Europe. This is especially applicable to fine French chocolates. As the largest city in Romandy, France’s influence is readily apparent in Geneva’s language, culture, and cuisine--including a preference for intense, never-too-sweet, French chocolate. zChocolat has become a favorite of connoisseurs in the region thanks to their commitment to high quality single-origin cocoa butters, flavorful all-natural ingredients, and stylish packaging, all delivered with a touch of pure French savoir faire.
Imagination and culinary handiwork collide throughout the year in Geneva’s famous chocolate shops. For example, sculpted chocolate cauldrons (marmite) filled with marzipan vegetables commemorate the defeat of troops sent by the Duke of Savoy in 1602--an accomplishment aided by a quick-thinking mother’s choice to hurl a pot of hot soup out the window and onto the attackers. Meanwhile chocolate covered almonds are a Christmas favorite, while Easter brings window displays filled with painstakingly detailed bunnies, flowers, and eggs. zChocolat carries on this tradition of providing specialized chocolates for exceptional occasions with their best-selling seasonal collections. Whimsical packaging and world-renowned recipes make the Christmas Collection a favorite for busy winter shoppers, while the Romantic Collection brings together zChocolat’s most exceptionally indulgent gifts, including oversized chocolates and gold leaf-covered chocolates. The release of the company’s Easter pralines and playfully-shaped friture mark another annual highlight as chocolate aficionados eagerly anticipate enjoying the slow-roasted Piedmont hazelnut filling and classic dark, milk, and white chocolate couvertures. And because every zChocolat gift can be customized with options like personalized images on the packaging or an individualized message on the card, it doesn’t matter if it’s a birthday, anniversary, wedding, or other completely unique occasion, zChocolat can help you create a gift to perfectly capture the moment.
