Welcome chocolate adventurer, please allow me take you on a delicious journey and share my passion for craft chocolate!
My chocolate story started in Belgium before I could put one foot in front of the other. Chocolates of all kinds delighted me and I ended up spending a lot of my childhood with my Swiss mother making scrumptious desserts for the family. When I left home I studied art in Brussels, co-created a design company and, in the early 90's, moved it to the United States. Naturally, I brought my recipe books and chocolate obsession along with me, plus suitcases of chocolates. I had to bring a taste from home!
In New York, I focused on building a career in textile and graphic design, children's books illustrations, magazine editing and many other creative endeavors, all the while organizing chocolate parties and events on the side, building an ever-growing community of kindred spirits. Chocolate, in all its delicious wonder, has the power to connect us to each other.
In the early 2000’s I witnessed with great enthusiasm the birth of the American bean-to-bar movement—one of the most exciting changes happening in the food industry at that time. I was now the one bringing American craft chocolate to my family and friends, changing their minds and palates. Opening the doors to a world of chocolate they didn't know existed. Since that time I've taken a deeper dive into the growing community of chocolate makers, getting more experience in all matters related to the industry including the dire environmental issues. It is thrilling to continue to study, review, share, learn from and contribute to what has really become a chocolate revolution!
