Cacao & Me

Meet Chocolatier Christina Marie

Christina Marie was introduced to the cacao bean in 2008 and it wasn’t long after that she started experimenting with the unprocessed cacao powder, butter and sugar alternatives (honey).  With a commitment to eating clean, she has always sourced organic, local when possible and ethical ingredients.  That is if she cannot make it or grow it in her garden. 

 

Partially, due to her obsession with refining her craft, and deepening her understand of traditional chocolate making, she completed schooling through Ecole Chocolat and later, working under Bernard Callebaut, an admirable mentor. Even so, she didn't alter her recipes and in 2015 submitted her Rose & Lemon chocolate, winning Silver at the International Chocolate Awards - Canada. It turns out she has a knack for flavor pairing and chocolate making.

 

In 2016 with some help, she built her own bee hives.  And now has multiple hives right in Calgary where she harvests her own honey for use in her SIGNATURE DARK Chocolate Line.
