Dancing Lion: The Best Place to Get Chocolate in New Hampshire
Calling all chocolate lovers!
Have you ever heard of Dancing Lion in Manchester, New Hampshire? I had not until recently, but my GOSH do they make incredible-looking chocolate.
And no, this ain't no Hershey-type chocolate. This is crafted artisan chocolate with techniques used all over the world.
The chocolates come from Master Chocolatier Richard Tango-Lowy. His techniques for crafting the best chocolate in New Hampshire come from all over the globe.
According to the Dancing Lion website:
I first encountered the True Soul of Chocolate in 1995. For decades I have sought its subtle nuances, studied its moods, struggled to understand its complex temper. Chocolate is coquettish and proud, quick to anger, open only to the most patient overtures.
I’ve learned to prepare it in the ancient ways with Mayans in Belize and in the gleaming kitchens of the finest Parisian chocolatiers. I have shared knowledge in Vancouver and in France. I am proud to count among my friends the finest chocolatiers from Montreal to Melbourne to Guatemala and farmers from Central and South America and the Caribbean.
For chocolate is art. And as art it is magnificent.
And his chocolate is surely magnificent art.
From chocolate bars, bonbons, and even a variety pack, this chocolate lover's paradise has options for any sweet tooth.
The Dancing Lion also offers baking classes.
According to the website, you can register for spring classes and master croissants or truffles. They also have a chocolate adventure class where participants will "taste some of the world's rarest and most precious chocolate while learning about cacao and chocolate."
If you are a chocolate-loving human being in New England, you must visit Dancing Lion in Manchester.
