Chocolat, Quintessential Chocolates
In 1984, Lecia Duke founded Chocolat, Quintessential Chocolates, and introduced the US confectionary market to a new product based on the centuries-old European process known as Liquid Praliñe (liquid center chocolates). After apprenticing under a Swiss master Chocolatier to learn the process, she added an American twist: infusions from the American TASTE pallette, an unprecedented and original approach... the first chocolatier, worldwide, to create a liquid center made from wine varietals, Texas Spirits, as well as, non-alcoholic liquid centers. Each batch of Quintessential Chocolates is handcrafted using the Swiss/Texas technique! Stop by their shoppe in the historic West Main Shopping District, right next door to the Fredericksburg Winery - TEXAS Chocolate and TEXAS Wine, side by side!
