Cacao & us
A HISTORY OF CHOCOLATE JEWELRY
CHOCOLATE has always been considered the food of the gods. So we at Babancu felt it should be presented in a way that is fit for the gods. That has meant inventing what we call CHOCOLATE JEWELS. EACH handmade jewel is crafted to be extra special, extra delicious and especially delightful to look at.
Behind Babancu there are two passionate and succesful artists. CHOCOLATIER Lorena Rincon who was born in Venezuela the home of the world's best cacao beans and has long understood their special magic. SHE also understands the subtle beauty of nature's rarest gems and was inspired to combine these two loves into what has become the Babancu's signature and delicious CHOCOLATE JEWELS.
FILMAKER Roland Joffe discovered a love of the chocolatier's art when he was making his much admired film about one of the world's greatest chefs FRANCOIS VATEL. Vatel believed that every chocolate, indeed every dish he prepared, had to be a stunning and harmonious contrast of texture flavour and colour. Vatel insisted that each chocolate was like a message from him to whoever chose to eat one of his creations.
FOR THE SWEETEST MOMENTS IN LIFE
Diamonds are forever, but chocolate jewels are carefully handcrafted by Babancu to be what makes that SPECIAL occasion exquisite and unforgettable. Each chocolate jewel is an original work of art, made with the finest ingredients, creativity and love.
We at Babancu believe that each chocolate jewel is a personal message from us to you and the ones you love.
THE BABANCU - A MYTHYCAL BIRD THAT DWELLS IN LATIN AMERICA
Once upon a time a girl had a dream. In it she saw a beautiful gold and red bird whose tail feathers seemed to be made of flames, sitting on the shoulders of a handsome young man. When she woke up she asked her grandfather what the dream meant. “My child, the man you saw is the man you will fall in love with, and the Babancu, for that is what the bird on the man’s shoulder is called, means he is the man you will marry.” The girl looked at him with serious eyes. “ But the man is a stranger, grandfather” she said. Her grandfather smiled. “The Babancu does not know strangers, Child, he only knows hearts.``
Vatel movie theme song performed in the magical setting of San Marco's square in Venice and directed by Ennio Morricone himself.
