robert steinberg, creator of scharffen berger has passed.
Robert Steinberg, one of the founders of Scharffen Berger Chocolate Maker passed away last night. Robert, a former physician, was diagnosed with Lymphoma around the same time him and John Scharffenberger started SBCM with a coffee grinder, mortar and pestle, an electric mixer, and a hair dryer to produce their first chocolate, in his home kitchen .
A statement from John Scharffenberger is up on Scarffenberger.com.
Our Chocolate Adventure Contest Event today was postponed and I ask anyone reading this to go out and buy SBCM’s 10th Anniversary Finisterra Bar (or any SB chocolate) in the memory of him and his contribution to chocolate.
