Bienvenue Chez Moi
To start with "chez moi" is in french and means "at my place".
(In switzerland we have four national languages, french, german, Italian and rätoromanisch )
Chez moi is a place where you will find quality handmade chocolate, made freshly in front of you.
We are working with the fines belgium couverture from Callebaut.
(Yes we no it is not Swiss but believe us it is pretty terrible good too and you will not miss out on the swiss knowledge)
For our truffles we are using the single cream from lewis road (certified organic and palm oil free)
and because we are living in a country where the most delicious ingredients grow in ours backyard we working seasonal !
(adding that way the new Zealand flavour )
Chilis from Kaitaia , oranges, lemons , mint from the garden, passion fruit, feijoa, macadamias and many more all growing freshly in NZ
I grow up in Switzerland,
I Speak french and german (also Swiss german)
i should be even able to order a pizza in Italian
I started working on my dream since the age of 15.
Starting at that time an apprenticeship of three years as a Baker and pastry chef.
After completing this first training successfully, I add 2 more years to finally be a confectioner maker & chocolatier.
I decided than to choose my new work places with caution, outside my comfort zone, never forget to progress!
Love and Quality goes together
