Choc Until You Drop
Temper Chocolates
By Sylvie Greil

THIS PRODUCT IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE

Caroline Yeh is a chocoholic. While living in New York and working as pastry cook at Gotham Bar & Grill her daily routine included trips to local chocolatiers such as Jacques Torres, MarieBelle and Payard. When she moved to Boston, to her dismay, there wasn’t a single chocolate shop that met the expectations of her distinguished palate. So she simply opened her own little boîte in Boston’s Hotel Commonwealth.

At Temper Chocolates, Bostonians indulge in artisanal treats made from the highest-quality cocoa beans. Yeh makes it a point that the cocoa content of all of her chocolates on offer exceeds 60 percent. Aficionados will love the flavors: you can taste quality cocoa from Chuao, criollo and porcelana beans (criollo is the most delicate cocoa bean with porcelana being a rare white offspring). Aesthetes will love the design of the bon-bon sized bites. The pretty purses we sampled, delicately huddled together in precious boxes were almost too beautiful to eat. But then again, nothing is too beautiful to eat, right?

The beautifully packaged chocolates are wonderful gift ideas. Lucky Bostonians and visitors to the city will find that Temper also features a full range of teas, espresso-based drinks and hot chocolates, as well as other treats. Your sweet tooth will thank you.

Temper Chocolates, The Retail Shops at the Hotel Commonwealth, 500 Commonwealth Ave. (Kenmore Square) Boston, MA 02215,
