"I am an aspiring chocolate maker that has worked in the IT industry since leaving university. I’ve been asked a few times “Why chocolate?” I have never really been sure how to answer that question. I believe it was curiosity. I have always loved food and cooking. I wanted to figure out how to make chocolate from scratch. I quickly found out this is a very difficult thing to do well. After numerous years of working in the IT industry. It was time for a change. I decided to try and turn this hobby into a business. My first sale was at the Revelstoke Winter Market in February 2019, a week before Valentines. Since then it has been a lot of work, tears, laughter, frustration and joy.
I was asked once “How does an IT guy figure out how to make chocolate, I thought it took many years?” It does. Plus a lot of help, mistakes and persistence."
