My website is under construction so I thought I would give you a preview. Please give suggestions and corrections to my About Us info:
Chocolot is an artisan chocolatier located in Ogden Utah. Ruth Kendrick has been making candy and using chocolate for more than 50 years. She is a second-generation chocolatier, having learned at her mother’s (Pauline H. Atkinson) side. Ruth and Pauline co-authored HP Books Candymaking, including all their favorite recipes and helpful hints. They have both taught classes in candymaking for many years, both together and separately.
Ruth has made traditional chocolates for years, but in the Spring of 2008 she attended the Callebaut Chocolate Academy in Montreal, completing the course work for a certificate in the Advanced and Expert levels. That experience changed her way of making chocolates. Instead of hand dipping chocolates, she now uses molds and colored cocoa butters to enhance the taste and appearance of her chocolates. She still fork dips some pieces with a thin shell of couveture and uses cocoa butter transfer sheets and texture sheets. Everything is made by hand in very small batches. The finest ingredients are sourced from around the world bringing the exotic as well as the traditional flavors to her confections.
This summer she has been working on chocolate covered popcorns. This is a new area for Ruth and she has come up with some great flavor combinations that make you want more. English toffee has always been a favorite treat and Ruth has included that in her offerings.
Her personal philosophy is that her candy must be the best tasting, freshest, and most exciting chocolates available. She is passionate about her chocolates and hopes you enjoy them as well.
Ruth has been a guest presenter on a Chocolate Cruise with Princess Cruises, and has appeared on the Food Network with Bobby Flay and Al Roker.
