About

A chef at heart.

My story begins where most labors of love start — doing something else.

The first 15 years of my working years were spent in Manhattan as a graphic designer in the advertising industry. I remember the precise date when I realized I could no longer work in that profession. It was February 2, 2000. The desire to become a chef had just become too strong.

The next phase in my life was in pursuit of a culinary degree and, later, as a line cook (slave) at one of the crown jewels in Danny Meyer’s New York restaurant empire, Eleven Madison Park. I had the good fortune to train under Chef Nicole Kaplan, head of pastry at EMP, who immersed me in the basics of toffees and brittles until making them became second nature. And when something becomes second nature to me, I can’t help but tweak and experiment until I make it my own.

And make it my own I did, right from the stove in the kitchen of my tiny Manhattan apartment. That’s when a friend innocently asked, “Did you ever think about selling these?” You could practically hear the “click.” That was my light-bulb moment. :-)

Enter La Petite Occasion. Operating seasonally from September through May, LPO sells toffees, brittles (and now caramels) to retail and wholesale customers throughout the New York Metropolitan area. You’ll find our products in shops throughout Westchester, Putnam and Fairfield County. And as of 2011, La Petite Occasion has operated a retail shop on Etsy.

It’s our sincere pleasure to be here on Etsy and to share our passion for confections with you. Bon appetit!

    As a kid, I used to pick through my Halloween candy and give the unwanted items to my siblings. Today, I'm still as picky as ever, but I share the good stuff with friends & neighbors who volunteer to make the ultimate sacrifice as guinea pigs. :-)
