Our Culture

Handmade Culture

We believe when you introduce people to truly exquisite chocolate and ingredients, they will be won over instantly. That's the Recchiuti philosophy that started in 1997 and one we still live by today. 

Handmade Culture


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. Candied Orange Peel are hand sliced into thin strips and candied in-house for over 2 days. 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.

Custom Couverture Chocolate

Did you know Valrhona created our custom-blend chocolates based on Michael Recchiuti's own palate? The custom-blend chocolate we use to craft our confections is exclusive to Recchiuti. You won't find our unique flavor profiles anywhere else.

What does couverture mean? It means we only use the highest quality chocolate with a minimum of 32% cocoa butter to create the smooth, creamy (and never “waxy”) confections you love.

Bold Innovation

Recchiuti Confections is known for our bold, but always balanced creations. In addition to our year-round confectionary line, we are always coming up with new ways to test the limits of technique and ingredients to deliver a one-of-a-kind experience to our fans. If you're lucky enough to live in the Bay Area, you may have already tasted some of our in-store exclusive items like freshly made Whoopie Cakes or Peach Ginger Shave Ice.

Supporting Our Community

Recchiuti is proud to support a variety of local nonprofits in the San Francisco area including Creativity Explored, Slow Food SF and Meals on Wheels. 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. Don't miss this year's collections, San Francisco Icons and Musical Jamboree!
