Shop #30 in the Ferry Building on the Embarcadero, San Francisco
A can’t miss destination
It was established by Michael Recchiuti, who had been a pastry chef and branched out into chocolate on his own.
Michael Recchiuti does a lot of chocolate experiments with the best ones becoming part of his line of confections and desserts. Some you can buy here. Others you can watch on YouTube, like:
- Making truffles on an elevator, Part 1
- Making truffles on an elevator, Part 2
- Making hot chocolate on a moving F-line trolley car
The full line of Recchiuti Confections are available at the Ferry Building. You can buy boxed sets or individual chocolates to assemble your own set. This is the only way to get a custom box of chocolates – they don’t offer the service online or in other locations.
Also available: bars, chocolate & caramel sauces, chocolate-covered fruit and nuts (dragee), marshmallows, S’mores Bites, and special items like Recchiuti’s book: Chocolate Obsession (signed by Michael himself) and limited edition items like Champagne Truffles (only available twice a year) or Whoopie Cakes, which are similar to southern whoopie pies, but these are rectangular cakes made with burnt caramel buttercream sandwiched between 2 layers of devil’s food cake and covered with semisweet chocolate.
