We just had to ask: The natural chocolatier
Story by Helen Moore
“The chocolate I make has a purpose.”
Louise Gormley, founder of Weezie Chocolates
Desert Companion: So, I take it you didn’t start out to become a chocolatier?
DC: What was wrong with your way of life?
DC: So what had your diet been like? Was it that bad?
DC: What goes into your chocolates?
DC: What would you say to someone who says chocolate was meant be indulgent and unhealthy rather than nutritious? Isn’t candy supposed to be sinful? Aren’t you taking the fun out of it?
DC: Is working with vegan ingredients challenging? Limiting? Freeing?
DC: Did you have to experiment a lot to get the right taste?
DC: What’s the hardest part of making chocolate?
DC: How long does it take to make a batch?
DC: Since you changed your diet, is your palate different?
DC: Do you have a guilty pleasure?
DC: Do you miss cheeseburgers, pizza, milkshakes, that kind of stuff?
