Happy Spring!

Happy Spring!
The light at the end of the tunnel is finally in sight, yes! I am sooo excited. I will be departing for France in a couple of days and I have not seen my family in 3.5 years. I can not wait to meet the new additions to the family. I will be away until the end of March.

If you're looking for a treat or a nice gift, my chocolates and caramels are available at:

La Fromagerie
868 College Street Toronto

Wishing you all a glorious Spring!

Time for cheer and chocolates!

Time for some cheer and chocolates, after a challenging year we all deserve some TLC.
However still not together, I do miss a good hug!
Like most of you my life got turned upside down and the main priority is being safe and pop-ups are unfortunately not really an option this year.

However, boxes of truffles in different sizes of 3, 9, 12 and 21 as well as caramels, plus samplers are available at:

La Fromagerie
868 College Street Toronto

We have new flavours for this year's box of 3:

  • Garam masala from Kochi India, mild with a top note of star anise.
  • Saffron and gur (palm syrup from Bengal) with pomegranate flower.
  • Almond and pistachio marzipan.

Candied fruits covered with chocolate are also available but please drop me a line for those as they are not listed on the website.

Delivery and pick up can also be arranged.

I wish you all a safe and happy season!

A little Momma Braga fact to all my amazing readers and fans is that I am a chocoholic. I have been since I could start eating chocolates and from what I can see from past photo albums, it started in my toddler years.


Last but not least we ended the tour at 829 Dundas Street West where we entered an adorable shop called, Odile Chocolat. We were greeted by owner and renowned food industry specialist, Odile Chatelain. Odile honed her craft while growing up as a child near Paris, France. She and her mother would make truffles each Christmas. This family tradition instilled a passion within Odile that has carried her through her 30-year career in the food industry. Odile now specialize in the latest food industry trends and brings exceptional quality European chocolate products to Torontonians.

Odile Chocolat specializes in tantalizing hand-made truffles with a combination of wine, herbs, spices and flowers. It really gives chocolate lovers a unique selection of flavor and choices.

During our tour at Odile, she offered a demonstration on how she hand designs the chocolates, it is just spectacular to see!

Odile key characteristic: craft blended with innovation.
