Online PR News – 10-July-2009 – – GREENWICH, Conn.—Craving the chocolate from her native Belgium, Martine Coscia, a Greenwich, Conn. resident and mom to four children, launched The Little Chocolate Company (http://thelittlechocolatecompany.com/) this May. Her handmade gourmet chocolates and signature Biscottini™ have an added flair: Coscia’s young children often help her blend unique flavors.
Known for her playful pairings of seasonal flavors that entice and surprise, Coscia began her cooking affair with chocolate in 2004 when she left the world of corporate IT for the kitchen. Born with a highly evolved palate for confections, Coscia trained at the Institute of Culinary Education in New York City and at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, N.Y.
As Coscia experimented and found her own way around the kitchen, she grew a fan base in Greenwich that inspired her to start The Little Chocolate Company. Her creations, available through the website and private order, include:
Critters™. Bite-sized clusters that feature a carefully balanced combination of decadent chocolate with dried fruits & nuts. Available in white, milk, and semi-sweet chocolate.
Bark. Luscious chocolate shards accentuated with the wonderful texture of your choice of peppermint, peanut crunch, coconut lime, or Fruits of Eden.
Biscottini™. Mini versions of the centuries-old Italian twice-baked biscotti are available in a variety of delectable flavor combinations.
Truffles. Infused with fresh peppermint from her kitchen garden, Coscia’s Peppermint Truffles are a definite crowd pleaser. Her rich confections offer ganache using a variety of natural ingredients like organic tea leaves and purées from locally grown fruit.
