Profile Last Updated: January 08, 2009
As far as the owners of ‘DC Duby’ are concerned, chocolate is a serious business. That’s why they’ve applied their knowledge of food science, in particular a movement called ‘molecular gastronomy’, to the making of confectionary; each of their hand made chocolates not only look like a miniature work of art, but provide anyone lucky enough to try one with an unforgettable experience. By experimenting with various natural ingredients in their laboratory, they’ve produced a range of exquisite, inventive sweets to please even the most thorough of connoisseurs.
As if the extensive scientific research into the how's and why's of chocolate making aren’t enough to suggest that these people know what they’re doing, they also won the ‘2003 Gourmand World Cook Book Award’ for their book on matching food and wine, along with numerous silver and gold medals in international culinary competitions. It seems fair to say that they’ve mastered the art and science of sweet technology to produce chocolates that appeal to all the senses. To receive a box of their chocolates as a present would be amazing; to give one away would be pure madness.
All of their products are available online, where one can explore their impressive virtual boutique and look at high-quality photographs of each of their chocolates that are enough to cause the casual browser to start salivating all over his keyboard. The user-friendly Web site also includes some lovely descriptions of their chocolates and what they contain, as well as plenty of videos and information about the company. If you fancy getting creative yourself, you can even order a ‘DC Duby’ science kit!
Note: Buy one of their cookbooks, and try one of their products like ‘Densification’ and stir up something completely new in the kitchen.
