Larry’s pursuit of fine cuisine and chocolate began in the late 1970s, when a passion for all things French led him to Paris and, shortly thereafter, Switzerland. During a visit to Bern in the mid-1980s, Larry discovered in a confiserie the heady aroma of pure chocolate and hand-made delicacies that propelled him to launch the company bearing his name today. L.A. Burdick Chocolate was established in New York City in 1987, when Larry returned from Switzerland bearing a chocolate pot, guitars for cutting shapes, dipping forks and a plan to create true chocolate confections. Five years later, he and his family – his wife, Paula, and their two children – moved their thriving small business to Walpole, New Hampshire. At their new chocolate shop and tea room, Larry’s exquisite chocolate bonbons quickly garnered a devoted following. L.A. Burdick Chocolate has since continued to expand, with several tea rooms and chocolate shops, a French-style restaurant and small specialty grocery store.
