Looking for good cooking chocolate

Blueicus Jul 9, 2006 08:30 PM

I'm looking for a vendor that sells good quality dark chocolate (such as Ghiradelli, Sharffen Berger, etc.) for cooking purposes around Eglinton and Yonge. Thanks in advance for your help.

    Surprisingly, Loblaws sells a good quality semi-sweet dark in a large PC-brand bar for about $5. It's French and works very well in baking in my experience. They might be little tough to find in July but it's worth a look.

      Pusateri's at Avenue and Lawrence carries most of the quality chocolate (callebaut, sharfenberger, etc). Closer to you on Yonge is the small Dufflet's store, which usually carries some baking chocolate.

        Bruno's on the southwest corner of Yonge and Heath (one block north of St. Claire) carries Ghirardelli.

          I have actually been buying large packs of bars of very good dark baking chocolate over at Soma. Excellent quality and all things considered not insanely expensive. The packs contain about 4 bars of about 7 oz each.

          Excellent stuff for really decadent brownies!
