High Quality Baking Chocolate
Any suggestions where to source high end baking chocolate? (Valrhona or equivalent) Can be retail or wholesale. Ideally the source would be located in the Burlington vicinity but will gladly take suggestions for Toronto and points in between.
Bernard Callebaut in Oakville sells 2.5kg baking bars in white, milk, semisweet and bittersweet. They retail for $60 or so. Unfortunately, it's one big slab, so you have a lot of chiselling ahead. They also have smaller 454 g bars.
If you don't mind mail order, chocolat-chocolat in Quebec sells Cacao Barry and Callebaut chocolates (some single origin too) in 1 kg and 2.5 kg bags in wafers/pellets.
I've been trying to figure out how to order from Qzina, a large Canadian importer/distributor of chocolate and other pastry ingredients. They cater to wholesale rather than retail.

Most health food stores have a good chocolate selection as well. Perhaps you have a few to choose from in Burlington?
