Recherche du Plaisir opening

Author: | posted 12/8/11 | Print This Post Print This Post |

For nearly 20 years Sonoma County native Lucy Gustafson has been giving away chocolates confections by the dozens of dozens for appreciative friends and family. After making more than 500 truffles last Christmas, Gustafson decided to enroll herself in the Ecole Chocolat’s professional chocolatier program and make her part-time
passion a full-time calling.

This weekend, she opens Recherche du Plaisir, a Parisian-style confiserie (aka a sweet shop) in Santa Rosa
(3401 Cleveland Ave., Suite 9, 843-3551) featuring truffles (white chocolate with ginger cinnamon and honey; milk chocolate with peppermint; Calvados infused dark chocolate ganache among them), butter caramels, French style macarons and Linzer cookies.

Grand opening on Saturday, December 10, 2011 from 1-4pm.

    Sorry, the chocolates might be great, but the business name is unfortunate.

    I am one of the lucky people who has had the privelige of trying the truffles and caramels Lucy makes. Incredibly delicious!

    Something tells me you might have the wrong map in the article. Last time I looked, this Cleveland Ave. was in Santa Rosa, Sonoma County, CA!

    I’ve heard great things about these from people in the know. Please tell me I don’t need to go to Cleveland for these! (See google map link)
