About Us

Well right now, us is just me, but you never know. There are many volunteer tasters and they might get credit (or shame) one of these days.

As long as I can remember I have been a big fan of candy, chocolate, and chocolate shops and factories. Sometime in 2005 it became much more than a small hobby. My heroic siblings moved my lovely mother to Portland. When I visited her there I discovered a great chocolate town. They have a wide variety of shops featuring a wide range of experiences. They even have a factory there, but I have not been able to tour it yet. While there I learned about a certain chocolate class that one shop owner had taken (See the Technology page). This class plays an important future role.

After visiting Portland I found a book in the library, Chocolate - A Bittersweet Saga of Dark and Light, by Mort Rosenblum. Reading that opening my soul to a whole new world of chocolate possibilities. Since then I have been tasting and exploring chocolate through books, shops, classes, and of course, tastings.

While reading an issue of Cocoaroma magazine (see Books link) I read about the Chocolate Technology class teacher, Terry Richardson. It was then I decided to take one of his classes. During a class dessert session I was trying to explain my crazy pursuit of chocolate enlightenment. Someone suggested that I should write about it. I don't feel ready for a book, but I have wanted to get a website going for quite a while. What you see before you is the result.
