The chef Marco Leo chose my Rosepizza for “its tender art of preparation”.

When this was the form you might guess where my inspiration came from?

Yes-yes, in this special case for sure from the Italian chocolate, read hazelnut hearts. I might be making pizza but my subconscious works with chocolate. Addiction at its best.

The lottery fairy drew for the winner Emmi Ketonen, who will receive one these beautiful cans including my artisanal chocolates.
Thank you all for participating, stay tuned here and congrats Emmi, I hope the package will raise your Christmas spirit! Send me please your address, so that you’ll still get the prize before Christmas.
In the picture you see my rice krispies reindeer chocolates, for which I used the Aalto mold for forming.

Before Christmas I will still pack the cans and chocolates to the Creative Christmas Market in Saint Prex near Lausanne where I’ll be present 14th December 13h-18h at Vieux Moulin.
Welcome to discover the Christmas Wonderland!
