Because of the diverse nature of the many different restaurants and chefs Brian Henry has worked under he is highly proficient at a wide range of cuisines.

Brian’s cooking is seasonal, inventive and smart, but in no way unapproachable or fussy. When he is coaxed out of the kitchen and starts talking about food, his passion and knowledge are instantly recognizable.

"Chef Brian Henry cooked a series of delicious appetizers for us as we sat around a table in the kitchen". Thanks

Tony Aspler, Wine writer

“Chef Brian Henry puts one hundred percent of his energy into going all the way.”

Wild Sweets®

By Dominique & Cindy Duby

Launches New Cocoa Bean-To-Bar

Chocolate Hearts Collection

January 20, 2014 (Metro Vancouver, BC). We are pleased to announce that 

Wild Sweets® By Dominique & Cindy Duby

 Cocoa Bean-To-Bar Online Boutique, an haute chocolate couture concept, is launching Hearts, a new cocoArt chocolate collection.

We have posted a short video on YouTube that shows the 12 steps involved in making this beautiful chocolate collection.

The exquisite hand-painted Wild Sweets® By Dominique & Cindy Duby cocoArt Hearts collection

features our exclusive Limited Release Vintage Single Origin Dominican Republic cocoa bean-to-bar chocolate.

This chocolate is made with cocoa beans from La Red, a cooperative of small-scale cacao producers in the north of the Dominican Republic.

We use the cocoa bean varietal Hispaniola for this collection.

This varietal has a distinct chocolate flavor with tamarind and citrus notes as well as roasted tones of caramel and toffee. The Hearts collection includes:

  • Individual hearts flavored with raspberry ganache, almond nougatine and raspberry jelly.
  • Hand-painted cocoArt heart filled with a creamy organic coconut & peanut butter praliné, passion fruit & raspberry pâte de fruit, organic roasted peanuts and organic dark chocolate crispy puffed rice.
  • duby 1

Such exquisite edible jewels deserve especially luxurious packaging.

 For this new collection, we worked with our graphic artist partner, Linda Mitsui,

to design a new and distinct packaging scheme based on the heart shape with repeating lines and two leading colors:

kraft to represent nature and red for love. The packaging is produced in microprint runs

and hand-finished, a process that requires patience and precision and illustrates the art of true craftsmanship.

This approach allows us to showcase the symbiosis between our chocolate-making process and our packaging —

 exclusive, meticulously crafted, single origin/limited edition and small-batch production —

resulting in one-of-kind high-quality exclusive chocolate products, which could not be achieved from a high-volume production process.
