Among the Bay Area’s chocolate-making community, Michael Recchiuti is pretty much royalty. His exquisite mini masterpieces are infused with lavender, tarragon, grapefruit, lemon verbena and other farm-fresh ingredients from local purveyors. Many are etched or painted by local artisans, including truffles illustrated with San Francisco landmarks by Creativity Explored, a nonprofit center for developmentally disabled artists. At his Ferry Building Marketplace shop, you can sample favorites such as burnt caramel chocolate, fleur de sel caramels, salted ginger bars and chocolate-covered fruit. Recchiuti also has a small outpost, Little Nib, in Dogpatch where you’ll find boxed chocolates, sauces, nuts and fruits and other popular selections.
