Easter 2016

As soon as Christmas finished, we began creating Easter Eggs to make sure we have enough stock for the people of Melbourne.

From traditional Easter Eggs to playful figurines to our Art Series collection – all are made with Belgian couverture, all are made with love.

Ethnic Business Awards

2015 proved to be a very exciting year for Christos!

In addition to having a solo art exhibition (see Self Titled) he also made it through to the finals of the Ethnic Business Awards.

The EBA have been running in Australia since 1988 and the awards celebrate “diversity and multiculturalism, and the achievements of migrants who come to Australia with a “suitcase full of dreams”. “

Being anonymously nominated for the small business section, the process to the finals included Christos telling his story; how he arrived in Australia, his struggles and his triumphs – both personally and professionally.

Self Titled

Our Master Chocolatier just finished his first solo exhibition at Step Gallery in Carlton.

Having studied Fine Arts at RMIT many moons ago, Christos has put time aside from his busy schedule of running a business, to work on his art.  Specialising in watercolours, his attention to detail and depth create beautiful still lifes.

He can find his works for sale within in our stores.


Easter 2015

Once again, our couverture eggs have become the canvas this Easter.  Creating beautifully designed eggs, Christos and Tina have been hard at work to bring you a range of Easter Eggs that reflect our true Artisan style.

Our full range our Easter products are available for purchase in our two boutiques.
Our trading hours over the Easter holidays will be as follows (please not different hours at our two boutiques).

Chocolatina Does Ghana

In the first week of April 2013, I, Chocolatina (chocolatier at Xocolatl Artisan Chocolates and Cafe), was one of the only 45 lucky Australian chefs, bakers, pastry chefs, chocolatiers and industry professionals to be sent over to Ghana by F.Mayer Imports.

I would like to share with you my journey and it begins on a hot sunny day in Accra, the capital of Ghana.

On the 2nd of April we arrived. It was hot, very hot. Driving through the city for...
