You all know I love making my own artisan chocolates - right? and that I have a strong desire to open a chocolate shop in downtown brunswick and call it "port city chocolates" and use a liberty ship or a mermaid as the logo, maybe both! hmmmm???

Well, I have found some handmade chocolates which are far superior to my own!
while cruising the web for ingredients to make valentine chocolates, i came across mama ganache. I was really impressed by the company mission and after talking with cindy by phone, decided rather than making my own, i would introduce this great company to my readers and give us all a chance to try their delicious chocolates.

then, in addition to the mama ganache assortment, i will add my own selection, handmade by me, using mama ganache 70% dark chocolate (fair trade, organic of course)and the usual lotta leafy love!
chocolate gets a bad rap for many reasons. To read more about the benefits of chocolate/cocoa click here. to find out more about fair trade cocoa and why its important, click here.
MAMA GANACHE IS SO NAMED BECAUSE WE ALL HAVE MOTHERS AND GANACHE IS THE MOTHER OF ALL CHOCOLATE FILLINGS. THE COMPANY PHILOSOPHY IS TO "DO NO HARM" TO THE EARTH OR THE FARMERS WHO SUPPLY OUR COCOA. THUS, ALL OF THE CHOCOLATES THEY PRODUCE ARE EXCLUSIVELY 100% ORGANIC AND FAIR TRADE. MAMA GANACHE SUPPORTS PROJECT HOPE AND FAIRNESS, A NON-PROFIT CREATED BY TOM NEUHAUS AND ERNIE ROIDE TO FOSTER SUSTAINABILITY OF COCOA FARMERS.
