a food/wine/marketing blog that is funny by accident, sarcastic on purpose.

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.

In the mean time, David Bovitz, a pastry chef, chocolate cookbook author and personal friend of Robert’s wrote a tribute to my favorite chocolate company.

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.
