sweet shop

April 29, 2013



Savannah chef and chocolatier Adam Turoni found his passion early on — in his grandmother’s kitchen.

After graduation from the Culinary Institute of America in New York, he interned at Alice Water’s restaurant Chez Panisse in Berkeley, CA, and with a chocolate guru in New York. Then Turoni headed South.

Last year, the Pennsylvania native opened Chocolat by Adam Turoni in downtownSavannah.

His artisanal chocolates include bars, truffles and caramels that are almost too lovely to eat.

Roasted fig and cognac and raspberry truffles are favorites. But so are Southern treats, like Bacon Butter Pecan Toffee (made with Georgia pecans) and caramels filled with local honey.

Some chocolates, like the chocolate “bee” bars ( pictured above), get the Midas touch, with a dusting of 24-karat gold. Prices range from $2.50 to 4.25 per piece.

To satisfy your sweet tooth, visit

If you are in Savannah, visit the shop at 323 W. Broughton St.
