EarthKosher Kosher Certification Agency provides Kosher certification for some of the finest and most delicious specialty food companies on the market today. Tumbador Chocolate is one of these companies.
Tumbador Chocolate, began with Chef Jean-François Bonnet. Bonnet was born and raised in Fréjus, a small town in the South of France. His passion for pastry awoke in childhood, when the daily aroma of freshly baked breads filled his family home above a local bakery.
Chef Bonnet received his formal culinary training under Michelin two-star Chef Philippe Da Silva at the Hostellerie des Gorges de Pennafort before relocating to the United States in 1999. Eager to share his unique vision with the New York community, Jean-François served as pastry chef at several culinary powerhouses including Monkey Bar, Cello and the Ritz Carlton’s L’Atelier.
In 2003, world-renowned chef Daniel Boulud invited Jean-François to become Executive Pastry Chef at his legendary flagship restaurant Daniel. Chef Boulud notes that Chef Bonnet “has the technique of an artisan and the creativity of an artist. He combines it with simplicity and respect for delicate flavors and textures.”
During his years at Daniel, Jean-François was twice listed among Dessert Professional Magazine’s “Top Ten Pastry Chefs in America,” first in 2005 and again in 2006.

Our bonbons are never frozen and contain zero preservatives, so every bite is as fresh as it is delicious.

Adding the scientifically proven deliciousness of cookies to your favorite foods is now possible with our cookie butter spread line”.
With the long winter season, there is nothing more comforting than meaningful family time, close friends, warm healthy food, and of course some delicious wholesome, chef inspired, locally sourced, and good intentioned chocolate.
