Deux Cranes is an artisanal chocolate and confectionery company showcasing handcrafted creations made in California by French-trained Chocolatier Michiko Marron-Kibbey. The branding and creative direction, led by Ayaka B. Ito in New York, establish a holistic visual and digital experience that heightens the sensual nature of Deux Cranes’ products. They draw on their Japanese heritage and flavors of their youth for inspiration in creating the varied lineup of sweet, and sometimes salty, creations.
Deux Cranes strives to celebrate the flavors and aesthetics in Japanese and French culinary traditions.
The incredible quality of the chocolate we source from Valrhona, in Tain L’Hermitage, France, provides the perfect canvas for our creations. Utilizing these couvetures, we stone-grind and blend Japanese flavors such as kinako (roasted soy powder), goma (black sesame), and hōjicha (roasted Japanese green tea) into luscious chocolate bars and bonbon. Our unique signature flavors include Matcha Chocolate with Yuzu and Milk Chocolate with Ginger, Sesame and Buckwheat. We also offer a rotating selection of seasonal offerings.
