Inside Brooklyn’s Wonka Factory: Jacques Torres Chocolate

“Come with me/ And you’ll be/ In a world of pure imagination…”

Jacques Torres – aka Mr. Chocolate – arrived to meet the tour group at his factory on an electric scooter, his grin stretching from ear to ear. What else can be expected from a man who deals in confections?

Torres, who is also the Dean of Pastry Arts at the International Culinary Center and takes on student interns who learn in his factory, led the group through his new chocolate factory in Brooklyn’s Industry City.

Take a look around the 40,000 square-foot temple to chocolate with us. We hope you can almost taste it.
