Artisan, gluten-free chocolates
The delicious story of Truffolie began with the challenge of capturing the taste of love in a bite of chocolate.
As a child growing up in the Caribbean, Wendy-Dawn was immersed in an environment that with its diverse ethnic culture, created what she describes as “an intoxicating carnival of the senses”. This sense of abundance, wonder and always following her grandmother in the kitchen was the fuel for her creative endeavors.
After graduating from college she delved into the art of making ceramics, thus honing her skills for ten years in the creation of beautiful three-dimensional objects. She applied these skills in the fashion industry and took a degree in fashion and visual representation.
Wendy-Dawn found herself experimenting with the palette, texture and the sense for the unique, still searching for the magic formula, that fast-track to the “carnival of the senses,” so she began experimenting with chocolate.
Always a keen cook, she took recreational courses in chocolate truffle and bonbons production. It felt compelling so she pursued further training at the French Culinary Institute and Vahlrona Ecole in New York.
Since then, Wendy-Dawn has concentrated on the process of hand-rolling, sculpting and dressing each truffle which are unique, beautiful… and delightfully edible.
The Truffolie artisan chocolate collection infuses French culinary finesse with the eclecticism of a Caribbean culture. It will excite your senses and ask to be invited into your life.
