A Feast of Kisses
ABOUT THE ARTISAN
The inspiration of these gifts are hazelnut orange meringue kisses from Olamola Confectionery. The ingredients are simple and of the highest quality. The kisses are handmade in small batches and dipped in a creamy dark chocolate. They’re light (and low in sugar) but they’ve got a soulful flavor and a nutty texture we think you and your sweetheart will find irresistible.
Combined with the kisses, we are including an assortment of exquisite truffle “hearts” from Neo Cocoa. No shell, just creamy chocolate ganache in a range of classic flavors, including almond butter & smoked sea salt, zested lime, toasted coconut, mocha cinnamon, and crushed cacao nib. It’s no exaggeration to say they melt in your mouth!
A small box of our favorite fruity truffles from Coco Tutti rounds out a delightful variety of sweet flavors.
For a tastebud splurge, we have an option that also includes 1/2 pound of almond toffee from Toffee Talk. One of our customers described this toffee as "legal crack" and we could not agree more.
Don’t be surprised if this Feast of Kisses brings you a shower of kisses!

ABOUT THE ARTISAN
We are pleased to bring together some of San Francisco’s delicious artisanal sweets including meringue kisses from Monica at Olamola Confectionery, hearts of truffles from Christine at Neo Cocoa; chocolate truffles from Elyce at Coco Tutti; and toffee from Catherine and Ellin at Toffee Talk.
Monica La O’ began baking as a child, inspired by hours of watching her grandmother work to perfect croissants. She pursued her love of baking with a degree in food science from the University of California, Davis. After years of winning hearts and inspiring addictions with her custom desserts, Monica La O' teamed up with her dad and brother to produce artisanal sweets from the highest quality ingredients for local California markets and beyond. Her meringue kisses are irresistible!
Christine Doerr has been involved with chocolate since her first job at a retail chocolate shop in the 80s, and has been named one of the "Top Ten Chocolatiers in North America" by Dessert Professional. Her truffles are inspired by traditional European truffles, with no hard shell, just rich, creamy chocolate delicately dusted with cocoa powder - Heavenly!
Grand Master Chocolatier, Elyce Zahn, founded Coco Tutti in 2010 with a focus on truffles that pair with wines. Elyce’s truffles are stunning and scrumptious!
After a successful 30-year career Catherine Hughes needed out of the commercial real estate business. With the encouragement of every friend who ever tried her toffee, Catherine and her cousin Ellin started Toffee Talk using a godmother’s classic recipe. We think you’ll find their toffee irresistible!
