About ChocolateTheory

On Etsy since 2015

Our mission is to encompass all the possibilities within confectionery art.

For Background:
I was in the midst of writing: "So I begin my chocolate journey!", only to realize that my journey began many years ago. I have a passion for creating confectionery and working with chocolate. So with such goals in mind, I have developed small-scale business of my own: Chocolate Theory.

I recently graduated from The Culinary Institute of America with a Bachelors degree in Culinary Science. Without a doubt, choosing this focus of study is a decision I will never regret. The science of food is a beautiful mystery: it draws me in and I find myself searching for the answers to satiety and the meaning of deliciousness. I want to use science to make chocolate and chocolate to ultimately create art.
With Chocolate Theory, it is a simple goal of mine to begin a business in which I can produce artistic expression through the medium of chocolate + sugar. It is an honor that my expressions of art are also absolutely delicious- so that I may share these products with you- so that you may go and share with those you admire!

I credit the year + half I studied Baking & Pastry Arts at the CIA before science as when I truly developed and noticeably defined my passion for chocolate. I have always loved to eat chocolate (ha! love is understatement) yet once I was able to work with it as a medium, I found I could create products which I considered more than pure dessert or treats, but art. ART! What a word. With it comes much expectation and predestination. I will never define art in one way- because I see it, hear it, feel it, smell it, and touch it in everything the universe contains.
