Dean is a busy guy…When not working on architectural projects (www.deanbingham.com) in Portland Maine, he is also a Chocolatier whipping up incredible creations (like the ones he sent me) He also finds time to ride his bike and raise money for his favorite charity, helping to find a cure for Multiple Sclerosis. In 2001 he rode his bike for 35 days across the US and raised over 8,500.00. He is now training for his 20th annual ride to support the people of MS.
He will be donating a portion of each box of truffles sold to help the people with MS.
Here are some facts about his Dean’s sweets:
*They use 56% cacao for the ganache center and 70% for the shell
*No preservatives or artificial ingredients.
*all of they’re truffles are hand-made and dipped in Portland, ME.
*all truffles are nut-free
*most truffles are gluten fre and one is dairy free-the chocolate stout uses local brew Allagash Stout.
*They use local indredients whenever possible-the blueberries, organic maple syrup, Allagash Black stout and Cold River (potato) vodka all come from Maine.
