Chocolate means love to me. It takes dedication, skill and passion to turn this ancient ingredient into something that can melt your heart. This is what Kokoro stands for: chocolate that comes from the heart and soul.

I started my training in pastry in Vancouver, Canada and quickly fell in love with chocolate. This love affair brought me to Europe where I completed a stage with Pierre Hermé in Paris and then went on to apprentice with The Chocolate Line in Bruges, Belgium which is the epicenter of chocolate.

My chocolate journey has taken me from 100 year old recipes to contemporary 3 star Michelin chocolates. Kokoro Chocolate is made from the finest chocolate France and Belgium have to offer together with specialty ingredients that reflect what I love in food.

Chocolade betekent liefde voor me. Er is doorzettingsvermogen, vaardigheid en passie voor nodig om dit eeuwenoude ingredient om te vormen tot iets dat je hart kan laten smelten. Dit is waar Kokoro voor staat: chocolade dat recht van het hart en de ziel komt.

Ik ben mijn leerproces begonnen in pâtisserie in Vancouver (CA) en werd al snel verliefd op chocolade. Deze liefdesaffaire bracht me naar Europa waar ik een stage volbracht bij Pierre Hermé in Parijs en vervolgens een stage bij The Chocolate Line in Brugge, het epicentrum voor chocolade.

Mijn chocoladereis bracht me van 100 jaar oude recepten tot moderne 3 michelin ster restaurant chocolade. Kokoro Chocolate is gemaakt van de beste chocolade dat Frankrijk en België te bieden hebben en ambachtelijke ingredienten die mijn liefde voor eten tonen. Deze smaken hebben een speciaal plaatsje in mijn hart en ik hoop dat ze ook jou een blijvende indruk geven.
