Audrey is the creator of CocoaBistro. She learned the art and science of chocolate at École Chocolat. In February 2015, she attended an intensive Master Class at Cocoa West, Bowen Island, British Columbia. Under the guidance of Master Chocolatier Joanne Mogridge and her artist husband Carlos Vela-Martinez, Audrey learned the fine art of airbrushing with cocoa butter, the science behind the crystalization of chocolate, and the transformation of cream and dark Belgian chocolate into luscious confections.
Come and explore your chocolate vision…
Chocolate has the power to evoke a myriad of thoughts, emotions and physical reactions. The mere mention of the word “chocolate” can bring about these responses…
But what is chocolate exactly? It is the product of a time- and labour-intensive process that transforms the seeds of a fruit into a luxurious and satisfying substance. Discovered by the Aztecs, it was a beverage, a unit of currency, and an aphrodesiac. Today, it is everywhere! Around the world, people consume nut- and nougat-filled chocolate bars in massive quantities.
At CocoaBistro, we believe that chocolate should not be merely consumed, but experienced. It’s that small indulgence In a truffle or ganache-filled confection that transports us, that evokes those feelings that we savour, and rewards us with that gift of chocolate that we deserve in our hectic lives.
Inspiring people to celebrate each day with the gift of chocolate.
We believe that chocolate was intended to be experienced rather than consumed. Each experience forms a special moment that we’re committed to providing every day.
