Éclat Chocolate

Master Chocolatier Christopher Curtin is a chocolate wizard, and makes magic using his vintage chocolate machinery. Eric Ripert, the super-chef Frenchman behind New York’s famed Le Bernadin, calls Curtin one of the greatest chocolatiers in the world.

I met Christopher at a tasting and found myself hanging on his every word, as he is incredibly wise, humble and kind. He has made a name for himself in the milieu of pastry and fine chocolate for more than two decades, and his great brilliance and reputation - his éclat - has set him in a class by himself. Originally from Madison, Wisconsin, Christopher set out for the House of les Compagnons du Devoir, the premier guild for pastry chefs in France. He worked alongside the most talented and inspired chefs in Europe and became the first American to be awarded the honor of German Master Pastry Chef and Chocolatier in Cologne, Germany. Christopher continued to learn from the masters, honing his skills in the finest chocolate houses of Belgium, Switzerland, France, Germany and Japan. Now you can find him at his shop & factory in West Chester, PA.
