Tell Us About Shoklat, formerly Shh…Chocolates:
Shh…Chocolates was created from the idea that it’s important to stop and really enjoy the foods that we eat and nourish our bodies with them. I want to encourage people to take the time to slow down, really taste their food and enjoy the flavors. That’s where the Shh…͟ comes from in my business name – let’s quiet our minds and experience the moment.
How long have you been in business?
I’ve been a personal chef for over eight years focusing on clean healthy foods, it’s about food that sustains the body and makes you feel good. I have specialized in chocolates for almost two years.
How did you get started?
I started out making chocolate as the owner of Beets Café not really knowing the proper techniques but on my own creating really delicious RAW Chocolates. Then when I closed Beets Café I took classes to become a chocolatier. Chocolate – like food – makes me very happy and now I’m making specialized chocolate bars, bark and ganache for the love of chocolate.
What excites you most about your business?
Chocolate triggers the feel-good hormones in our brains and that’s why we feel so happy when we eat it. I love watching people get so happy as they experience the flavors of good chocolate!
What’s most challenging?
Chocolate is very temperamental, especially with the amount the humidity we have here in Austin.
What’s one thing you want people to know about you?
My first choice is organic and highest quality ingredients that are in their purest form. I will never serve anything I do not enjoy myself. Secondly, I only purchase from cacao farmers (cacao is the raw form of chocolate) that are treated fairly and ethically. When you see the Fair Trade symbol on any packaging, that means they’re conscious of how farmers and workers are being treated. That is really important to me. I think it makes the chocolate taste better! And lastly, it’s important to note that all of my chocolates contain 70% or higher cacao which is the standard to make dark chocolate with minimal amounts of sugar.
