Something Sweet is Coming to Ridgewood

Something sweet–or sweeter–is coming to Ridgewood as owners of Sook open up Sook Chocolate. Chocolatier Keum Sook Park is ready to realize her chocolate dreams. Sook recalls rare chocolate treats as a child in Korea. “I close my eyes and remember the delight of those simple chocolate treats. I want to go back and experience them as a child again. But sadly, I cannot go back.” Sook Chocolate is designed to create new chocolate memories. I can hardly wait to make some of my own.
Currently, the space next to the pastry shop is under renovation with a aimed opening date of August 2017 at which time, the shop will move all its chocolate production from Clifton to 26 S Broad St. Our gain, Clifton’s loss. Sook’s chocolate shop will have extra seating for patrons to enjoy coffee, pastries and crepes from next door.Co-owner Izzy Yanay says he was inspired by trips to to visit French chocolateries and patisseries and that besides Jacques Torres chocolate shop in Soho, Sook will be only local shop that has this type of chocolate-making experience.

They’ll also be offering chocolate workshops for adults on weekends where you can learn the history and varieties then, under the guide of their Chocolatier, create your own plates and work with molds. Sign me up! Amateur chocolatiers will be able to try their skills at home, Sook will have raw Chocolates of different varieties available at the store.
