It all began in a tiny chocolate shop in Lyon, France. One of their specialties was a devilishly good “chocolat du diable” with the flavors of blood orange and ginger. After I had polished off all the ones I returned home with, I decided to recreate them myself. Then I expanded to new flavors, inspired by the fantastic food culture of my then home, the San Francisco Bay area, and by travels around the globe. I started making chocolate truffles on a regular basis for friends and family. Fast forward many years and a transcontinental move later, and Swoon has launched to bring this same global/local outlook to Washington DC.
Swoon uses the best possible ingredients - local and seasonal, sustainable, organic, and fair trade where possible.
