Treats and eats

“We want to be the Cisco Brewers of chocolate on Nantucket,” says Andre Marrero, owner/chef of Faraway Chocolate (, the island’s new bean-to-bar chocolatier, open year-round. Cocoa is sourced from around the world and the chocolate is produced on Nantucket. Marrero operates a tiny shop on Old South Wharf and offers 90-minute chocolate-making classes at the Nantucket Culinary Center. Participants will temper, mold, and enhance their chocolate with dried fruit and other ingredients, tasting as they go. “I’m a chef — we never eat a meal, but we taste constantly,” he says. Works for us.
