Home-grown: Etiquette of Chocolate





One of my goals this year is to put a little more effort into developing a local resource for North Florida Brides within the blog. While those plans are underway but not nearly close to completion (more on that later)... I want to introduce you to my most recent find.... Etiquette of Chocolate- located on Kingsley Avenue in Orange Park, Florida. Jaycel and Judy are bringing such a refined (and delicious) treat to the first coast. They studied at the French Culinary Institute in NYC and interned under Ron Ben-Israel, thus one can expect nothing short of mouth-watering delight within each of their carefully crafted bonbons. I was introduced to this duo through a current bride of mine. We have been working closely with Jaycel and Judy to develop both a gorgeous cake design and a favor concept centered around their signature line of bonbons. Each bonbon is named after relationships that people form (love, compassion, etc)- all elements that my bride felt were essential within her marriage... thus we are naming her tables after each of these, offering a sampling of the delicious squares to her guests, and attaching a little love letter from the couple- explaining how each element is important to them. I am excited for to carry out the execution and will be sure to share pictures from this one in July. In the mean time, be sure to stop into either Matthew's Market (San Marco) or Bottega di Bella Sera (Park and King near 5 points)or Etiquette of Chocolate Studio (Kinglsey Ave in Orange Park) to pick up your box to share or indulge solo...
