Chocolates, treats, and the sweet things in life

Sweets

Besides being enjoyed on their own, much of what I create is meant to be parred with wines – both white and red, and even bourbon and mezcal.  I work to include different techniques, flavors and ingredients that have influenced me over the years while traveling to such amazing countries as Spain, France, and Italy, while giving homage to products closer to home from the Yakima Valley in Washington State.

Admittedly, my chocolates are meant to be enjoyed by adults. The liquors and liqueurs I use in my candies are there as flavor components and enhancers, not to get one drunk. Very rarely will you ever experience the burning sensation of alcohol in the candies.
