Michael Recchiuti and his wife Jacky created Recchiuti Confections in 1997. Michael, a self-trained chocolatier, founded Recchiuti Confections with the idea that meticulously sourcing ingredients, hand-crafting confections in small batches and using traditional European techniques would make Recchiuti Confections a necessary indulgence and create an obsession for artisan chocolate nationwide.
Directed by Jacky, influences in design, architecture, music and fine art mark packaging and product style details in collaboration with the graphic design and photography team. Recognizing that like love, the experience of opening a beautiful box of chocolates is just as much part of the Recchiuti experience as the chocolate within.
Recchiuti Confections still sources local California farmers’ markets for bundles of fresh herbs like lavender + lemon verbena to create our signature infusions. Single-origin chocolates are blended together to create complex + unique tasting experiences. And of course, we wouldn’t be Recchiuti without Michael’s signature Burnt Caramel. This smoky, whiskey-like flavor is woven into the fabric of our confectionary line, from Burnt Caramel Truffle to Burnt Caramel Sauce.

Recchiuti is proud to support Creativity Explored, Meals on Wheels, Scholarmatch, and No Kid Hungry: Share Our Strength with annual donations. Additionally, we are involved in annual events at the Ferry Building Marketplace, including Food from the Heart and The Harvest Festival that benefit Slow Food, CUESA and CCOF.
This year, we are excited to debut our latest Creativity Explored collaboration, Creativity Explored: Victorians. Since 2008, Recchiuti has been teaming up with Creativity Explored, a San Francisco nonprofit visual arts center where artists with developmental disabilities create, exhibit, and sell art. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each Creativity Explored box directly supports Creativity Explored programs.
