Pralines to be celebrated

Berliners Christopher O’Connor and Daniel Budde have one goal – they want people to start celebrating chocolate again instead of just eating it as a snack. This is why they have invested their heart and soul in their Candide pralines.

Christopher O’Connor is originally an opera singer, but thanks to his Pignut truck he is already firmly established among Berlin’s culinarians. Daniel Budde is a confectioner and patissier and has previously worked at the Adlon Hotel, for the Reichstag and at Michelin-starred chef Tim Raue. They both have one thing in common: they agree that German chocolate should be a whole lot more than just milk chocolate and that it needs to move away from the low-priced sector and questionably long use-by dates – towards fairly produced, premium-quality chocolate that can be enjoyed with a clear conscience.

They put their plan to action and served up the results in 2017 as Candide: freshly made pralines made of fairly produced and sustainable ORIGINAL BEANS chocolate from Switzerland with a few other seasonal ingredients. But if you think seasonal has to be boring, you’re wrong – because it’s Candide’s unusual flavours that really makes them stand out from the crowd. Tea & passion fruit, salted caramel or basil & liquorice are just a few examples from their repertoire that are definitely worth celebrating!
