CHIEF CHOCOLATE ADVENTURER
As a scientist and management consultant, the plunge into chocolate seemed unlikely for Anne Weyns-Papaleo, the co-founder and chief chocolate adventurer of Artisan du Chocolat. Yet her passion and her core ability are to create. An artist whose medium is chocolate, she plucks ideas from the sky and brings them to life, to a sweet reality for all to enjoy. With an innate sense of aesthetics, she dreams chocolates that set trends from the first salted caramels to pearls or whimsical seasonal Collections.
