David Chow’s artistic approach

Local pastry chef and chocolatier David H. Chow is known for making colorful and finely decorated candies, bars and other chocolate creations. Perhaps not surprisingly, Chow was an engineer by training before becoming a pastry chef, with the geometric patterns of his chocolates reflecting an almost scientific level of detail. For Easter, expect chocolate shell eggs topped with yellow passion fruit and white chocolate couverture to look like a “sunny side” egg, as well as eggs decorated with graffiti-like splash patterns. davidhchow.com
