    A quaint and cozy new chocolate shop has opened up in the Beaches and is giving the other chocolate stores in the neighborhood a run for their money. The return of long time resident and business owner Sharon Shoot with her new store Chocolate by Wickerhead is greeted with a big welcome, “Thank heaven she’s returned," exclaimed one local. With ‘oh my god’ truffles and moist creamy fillings I just might have to agree.

    For fifth generation pastry chef and chocolatier, Heinrich Stubbe chocolate is a way of life. It’s a family tradition that he is proud to pass down to his ‘kinders’ like his Father before him. His children, Daniel and Anne are now the sixth generation of Stubbe pastry chefs, carrying on the family tradition. In the conventional German fashion Stubbe’s is in fact a pastry shop in Ottawa, they just happen to specialize in chocolate. There are no complaints here. With selections like Irish coffee, peach & champagne, nougat praline, and gingerbread you can refer to this place as whatever you want!

Chocolate is rich in phenolics, the same heart protective antioxidants found in wine. Indulgence? I call it self preservation!
