What can I say about Heinde & Verre – the name translates from Dutch as “Near and Far” – that I haven’t already said?
Tune in and find out.
I met H&V one Amsterdam February during Chocoa. (Spoiler Alert: I will leave the details for the live stream.) I was hooked after listening to co-founder Ewald Rietberg talk about their approach, even as I was tasting their work. After visits to Finland, France, and Belgium just as the pandemic was breaking out I made it a point to stop in Rotterdam to visit their workshop on my way to Schipol to fly back to New York just as global travel restrictions were being imposed.
A year later I was looking for some special chocolate for my 20th Anniversary Celebration, and H&V was one of two makers I approached (the other being Mackenzie Rivers of Map Chocolate, a recent guest on TheChocolateLife :: LIVE, card below).
Without being too obvious a fanboy (though it should be obvious I am), H&V is one of my favorite specialty chocolate makers because they eschew the conventional wisdom of how “craft” chocolate “should” be made. Tune in and learn why.
