Jacques Torres' showmanship sets him apart in the crowded market for high-end chocolate.
In 1980, on a dare from a girlfriend, 20-year-old Jacques Torres marched into the palatial Hotel Negresco in Nice to ask the imperious chef Jacques Maximin for a job. The concierge booted him out, so Torres sneaked into the kitchen through a back door. Maximin told him to return in one hour with a chef's coat.

Love the way he decided on his business model! Longer shelf life equals less risk.
