A Cambodian spirit house in chocolate

130329 08e

A genuine expert on the making of chocolate, Philip Moser, 30, constructs a Cambodian spirit house of Chocolate in Phnom Penh earlier this month and took time to chat for our Easter special report.

Moser participates in growing cacao plants in places like Madagascar to harvest the very best raw material for the making of his chocolate.

Moser says chocolate is good for your heart when you consume high quality products that have 70 per cent or more cocoa content.  He returns to his home in Iseltwald, Switzerland, next week where he keeps his lab.

The rest of his time is spent travelling around the world, harvesting the finest cocoa plants, conducting classes and seminars.  

As a self-described niche player in the chocolate game, he produces 30 kilos of chocolate at a time and sells it at $25 per tube for six sticks of chocolate at 75 grams each.  He said Cambodia could become a cocoa producer, especially in the lowlands.

Moser may be reached on p@xocophil.com for special orders on special high-quality chocolate made from the finest ingredients from around the world.  He says his is some of the world’s most expensive chocolate.
