About Chocolats du CaliBressan Santa Barbara Carpinteria

Jean-Michel’s experience and creative culinary skills have earned him many world-wide accolades in magazines, brochures, and traveling guides, including “Rick Steves,” and the well known French tour guide, “Michelin Vert.”

“Le CaliBressan,” created in 1996 by Jean-Michel and Jill while in France, boasts clients from many European countries, the United States (including Alaska and Hawaii), and Canada.

Jill, missing her native California, has returned with Jean-Michel to share their wonderful talents in “tempting your taste buds” with confectionery delights expressing a true joie de vivre!

Bon Appetit!


The best chocolate I have ever had! I bought 45 chocolates to give away as gifts when visiting my sister in Carpenteria. I ended up eating 30 of them before I even made it home. My husband and I are already figuring out ways to make it back out there for the holidays to make another "gift" purchase.
