Frequently asked questions

Who makes your chocolate?

We source our chocolate from several producers Worldwide. Harika & Ivan then turn the raw material into amazing shapes and tastes.

What is the difference between a chocolate maker and a chocolatier?

A chocolate maker focuses on turning cocoa beans into chocolate, either in buttons or bars. A chocolatier on the other hand uses skilled techniques to transform chocolate into truffes, pralines, and other wonderful treats.

What are truffles & pralines?

Of course there are many definitions depending on regional bias. In our terminology, a truffle is chocolate mixed with butter or cream to make a soft centre. The truffle is then dipped in chocolate to make a hard shell exterior. A praline is chocolate mixed with caramelised almonds or hazelnuts that have been reduced into a smooth "butter".

Did you train as pastry chefs?

No, we trained as chocolatiers. That is why we only make chocolates and not cakes or other deserts.
