One of the reasons we were able to dive in & create some new chocolates these past couple of weeks was that we had an incredible intern who worked with us before the school semester kicked in. Meet Elery, an accomplished baker & chocolatier in her own right, the kind of young woman who spends her spare time manning a melangeur in her home kitchen & using her own ground chocolate to make an array of delicious bonbons & baked goods (we were lucky enough to be able to sample some!). We rocked our hairnets & fancy aprons, & experimented with new flavor combinations & techniques. Elery kept us laughing, questioning & exploring, & we are so grateful to have such a fun, smart & energetic person help us in the kitchen!
You can have the opportunity to try out some of Elery's treats if you're lucky enough to go to her family's art & community space, 118 Elliot, on a night when she's offering some of her wares for sale.
We hope to have Elery back in the chocolate lab for some guest-star chocolatiering during the holiday season.
