He may not have a top hat and a band of Oompa-Loompas, but Chef Kriss Harvey will take you to a land of pure imagination. Holding the title of one of America’s Top 10 Pastry Chefs, Harvey leads a sweet life to say the least. Harvey leads a team of chefs dedicated to making intricate and delicate chocolates from andSons Chocolatiers, located in Los Angeles, Calif.
andSons was created by two brothers who describe themselves as being “born into fine chocolate.” Phil and Marc Covitz were inspired by their mother, Aviva, who ran highly successful Teuscher Chocolates & Cafe in Beverly Hills for more than 30 years. In 2019, andSons officially opened their doors.
Harvey prides himself on consistency and innovation in both his chocolates and the equipment that helps him create them. What makes his job easier? His Cambro food storage products. While you might be able to guess most of the products, there’s likely one that will surprise you.
Sheet pan racks are a staple in every kitchen, but Harvey utilizes the Ultimate Sheet Pan Rack to increase the food safety in his space. While metal racks eventually rust, corrode or flake, the Ultimate Sheet Pan Rack remains rust-free for a lifetime. Designed from the same durable material as Camshelving Elements Series®, the Ultimate Sheet Pan Rack is lightweight, maneuverable and easy to clean.
The most precious items in Harvey’s kitchen are the ingredients. In order to keep them fresh and free from contamination, Harvey only trusts Cambro. He particularly likes using the CamSquares and Camwear Food Boxes because of their shape. When using square, you are immediately provided with 33 percent better space usage than if you were using round containers.
No, Harvey and his team aren’t working on a new dessert pizza, they use our Pizza Dough Boxes for storage. Harvey likes them because they hold a good volume but are still easy to carry. He uses Pizza Dough Boxes to store their dragées, shelf stable caramel bonbons and molds.
“I just love those dough boxes, they’re just so sturdy. The lids fit perfectly; they never warp. They’re just amazing,” said Harvey. Although the coronavirus pandemic has been tough on many businesses, andSons was one of the lucky ones. Many people were stuck at home and wanted to treat themselves to a bit of luxury that they couldn’t visit in-person. As a result, andSons’ online orders skyrocketed as Americans across the country shipped themselves a something to make their days a little sweeter.
