lemon-peel batons

These tender, juicy, chocolate-covered Japanese lemon batons are flown exclusively to us from Dandelion Japan's Chef Shota Suzuki and his Tokyo Confections team. They begin with fresh, extra-thick-cut, sugar-syrup-bathed slices of peel — from which they gently oven-remove only the excess syrup; then they enrobe each bright baton in Dandelion Japan’s subtly fruity 70% Zorzal Comunitario, Dominican Republic chocolate, for a soft, toothsome citrus treat.

Chef Shota Suzuki

From San Francisco to Kuramae, Japan

We launched Dandelion Chocolate Japan in collaboration with Seiji Horibuchi in 2016. Seiji frequented our Valencia Street café and we developed an immediate rapport based on our shared love of chocolate. Seiji has an eye for detail and boundless energy, and we loved our conversations together.

He proposed taking our chocolate international by building a new factory in Kuramae, old Tokyo — an area known for artisan workshops and a craft culture. Here, Chef Shota Suzuki helms Dandelion Japan’s Pastry and Confections teams, who create elegantly flavorful chocolates and desserts.
