Knipschildt Chocolates

Fritz Knipschildt's name may be a mouthful, but wait till you taste his chocolates. The name 'Knipschildt' will be rolling off your tongue as easily as his nougatine truffle.

A young Dane living in Connecticut, Mr. Knipschildt has hurled himself into the top ranks of chocolatiers. Using Valrhona from Bernachon and Michel Cluizel chocolate but not a single machine, everything is hand rolled and molded. Nothing artificial and no preservatives, of course. He makes a classic truffle but also frankly insane pieces such as red chili/tangerine ganache. They are all little drops of the sweet by and by.

You can find them at Dean and Deluca, Grace's Market and Jefferson Market or order them from echocolates (a 40-piece box is $50). Learn more about Mr. Knipschildt at his website.
Brooklyn Brewery's Dry Stout, a big success when it was last brewed two years ago, makes a return for a limited run through St. Patrick's Day and a bit beyond. Get your first sip at the brewery tomorrow night, March 7th, in their tasting room from 6pm-10pm. The address is 79 N. 11th [Wythe] 718.486.7422.
