Valrhona Cocoa

choconut Aug 21, 2007 05:58 PM

Does anyone know of a source for Valrhona unsweetened cocoa powder in Baltimore or Washington, D.C.? I've only ever bought it online, but I'm curious if I can get it at a store so I can make a molten chocolate cake on Saturday.

    I got a box at the Williams Sonoma in Old Town Alexandria about a month ago, $10 for about 8 oz. Others might carry it too. Here is their store locator:

        I've found it at Whole Foods. They buy it in bulk and package it in their own deli-style containers. They are labeled Valrhonoa Cocao, and they have variable portions. I'm not sure if all Whole Foods have it (mine on P Street does often).

        You might call Biaggio on 18th Street in DC, and see what they stock. They might even have alternatives that are just as good if not better.

          Thanks Martin, for your help! I'm going to be right near the P St. Whole Foods later today, so I'll duck in to check it out.
