I’ve recently had the chance to sample some truffles from ChocolaTas. These chocolates are made by Master Chocolatier Wim Tas, who was trained in Belgium and came to Canada 10 years ago with his wife Veve. Since these their passion has been making handmade, uniquely flavoured chocolates. ChocolaTas flavours are created using natural ingredients from around the world. Whether it’s Kyoto Cherry Rose or Agassiz organic hazelnuts, Wim and Veve search the globe for inspired flavours that will delight your palate.
ChocolaTas uses no preservatives. The beauty of real chocolate is that it’s meant to be savoured soon after it’s created. Wim Tas describes each piece as a “little jewel”, and it’s his love for the product and his dedication to excellence in his field that makes his work “art”.
Take a look around their website – www.chocolatas.com or pop into their shop on Granville Island or Abbotsford (the website has the directions).
As a pre-Christmas treat Chocolatas is giving away a four piece tin of their chocolates to one of my readers. All you have to do to enter is tell them whether you like MILK or DARK chocolate! The winner will be announced on my blog on December 7th. Here’s the link to enter http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/93C9Z7T. Good luck!
