Larry Burdick’s pursuit of fine cuisine and chocolate began in the late 1970s, when a passion for all things French led him to Paris and, shortly thereafter, Switzerland. During a visit to Bern in the mid-1980s, Larry discovered in a confiserie the heady aroma of pure chocolate and hand-made delicacies that propelled him to launch the company bearing his name today.
L.A. Burdick Chocolate was established in New York City in 1987, when Larry returned from Switzerland bearing a chocolate pot, guitars for cutting shapes, dipping forks and a plan to create true chocolate confections. Five years later, he and his family – his wife, Paula, and their two children – moved their thriving small business to Walpole, New Hampshire. At their new café, Larry’s exquisite chocolate bonbons quickly garnered a devoted following. L.A. Burdick Chocolate has since continued to expand, with several cafés and chocolate shops, a French-style restaurant and small specialty grocery store.
The company has changed, but our methods and values have not. We still import only the best couvertures from Switzerland, France and Venezuela, made with cocoa beans sourced primarily from South and Central America and the Caribbean. Confections are made in small batches and, eschewing molds, we cut and shape our bonbons by hand. Complementing flavors and ingredients come directly from their sources, never from extracts, concentrates or artificial flavorings.
