A passionate chocoholic born & raised in New York, I left my finance career & pursued my chocolate dreams, apprenticing with one of the top chocolatiers in France. 8 years since, I've worked with the best artisans in the UK & Belgium, met our cocoa farmers, seen bean-to-bar production first-hand, and have gained a deep, well-rounded understanding of chocolate.
Brimming with chocolate passion, I recently started Cocoa Journey, where you can taste & discover delicious, exceptional artisan chocolates on a guided degustative tour, and learn to make delicious Belgian chocolates yourself!

We highly recommend Cathys tour of chocolate in Brussel. She was really inspiring host! The tour was perfect in time - not to long or short. We had a total of 12 pices of chocolate at four different stops in 1,5 hour, perfect balance between walking and tasting. The best thing was that she really insirered us to enjoy handmade chocolate instead of massproduced chocolate. We recommend everybody to take some water with you, so you really enjoy the diffferent taste of the chocolate.

Cathy is an incredible person and host. She is very flexible and knowledgeable. When talking about the chocolates and the difference in chocolates her energy fuels you to want more as she goes more in depth with each one. Cathy brings you around and all the chocolates you try on her tour I wouldn't have found without it. Each shop has its own specialty and Cathy definitely has found the best. If you go on the tour and you think you might not like a certain chocolate she as you try, if your not allergic you should try it anyway because although it might not suit your tastes its definitely still worth the experience so you can have the understanding of flavor. If ever back in Belgium this is the first tour I will be on since it was the highlight of my trip. Highly recommended.
