Artisan, gluten-free chocolates
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 along with a keen love for her dog and animals on the whole.
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 with a degree in fashion and visual representation while dreaming of someday owning her own business, and a desire to create a home on a farm for pets that are unable to be adopted.
While searching for that “carnival of senses” magic formula that combines palette, texture, and uniqueness, Wendy-Dawn found herself experimenting with chocolate as the medium to create beautiful and healthy truffles and bars.
Always a keen cook, she took intensive courses in chocolate truffle and bonbons production. It felt compelling so she pursued further training at the French Culinary Institute and L’Ecole Vahlrona in New York. Working alongside other chocolatiers and friends who were also animal lovers, she continued to dream about her animal sanctuary.
Since then, Wendy-Dawn has concentrated on the process of hand-rolling, sculpting and dressing each truffle which are unique, beautiful, healthy… 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.
