How I discovered the Best Gourmet Chocolate in the world. By Patrick, Michelin chef in Caracas

After retiring from my position as chef to Sir Elton John, I moved to Venezuela and with the financial support of multi millionaire Gonzales Gorrondona, owner of the largest banking network in South America, the restaurant Patrick was born. Located in the elite suburb of Las Mercedes in Caracas, Patrick was the favorite venue of many a celebrity, the rich and the famous. 

One of my regular customers was Mr, Jorge Redmond, president of the giant “Chocolates El Rey” corporation.
Venezuela is well-known for producing some of the finest cacao in the world

Jorge taught me everything one needs to know about chocolate, hence my lifelong romance with this delicious food began. Why should we eat chocolate?

Chocolate romantic-fall in love over chocolate!

High end chocolates have an intense flavor and a luscious mouthfeel. The whole taste of chocolate in your mouth is a voluptuous experience, so even if you didn’t know about the supposed aphrodisiac qualities of chocolate, it’s no surprise that good chocolate makes people feel romantic.”

A gift of chocolate has also long been a way to show a loved one you value them. Many ancient civilizations used cacao beans as currency. So when you drank chocolate, you were literally drinking money.
And with American consumers spending $19.6 Billion on Valentine’s Day, it seems some things never change

What a unique gift idea!

 A gift must say

“this has been created for you alone”
“wow I’ve never got anything like this before”

One day on my birthday-a gift of chocolates.
I was introduced to the worlds best gourmet chocolates

I was hooked for life!

You don’t need this gold leaf extravagance to say “I love you” but then again why not?
