The sisters, Maire and Lesly Chacon, were raised in an environment surrounded by celebrations where food was always the protagonist. The preparation of the feast was shared by every member of the family where even the smallest fulfilled their tasks. Christmas and New Year’s Eve were not only family gatherings but the biggest parties of the year and remain so to this day.
Lesly Chacon completed a degree as an interior designer and gained experience in the field for several years before discovering chocolate was not only a passion but her calling. Lesly began making bonbons as gifts for friends and soon word spread. It then became something else entirely… a business – Wow! Thus she pursued her passion for food, combining her background in design and a knack for creativity, and the results can be seen every chocolate creation. Lesly has since trained with some of Venezuela’s finest chocolate makers.
Maire Chacon learned about the art of making truffles and bonbons from her sister. She is an accomplished artist who works with many different materials – from acrylic paints to clay and wood. Maire has always shared a passion with her family for food and now she strives to combine the worlds of art and edibles every day.
Maire and Lesly continually challenge each other, discovering the art of edible chocolate delicacies together…
The chocolates symbolize their joint and separate journeys, an unmatched passion for life – embodied in the colorful soul of the creations.
“y que viva el chocolate!!”- and live the chocolate!!
