Wednesday night’s Voila Chocolat event was a thoughtful tour through the mind and business of the entrepreneur and chocolate visionary, Peter Moustakerski. The evening began in the private room of the chocolate atelier where wine and canapés were served by the in-house master chocolatier Christophe Toury. Then Mr. Moustakerski gave an insightful, honest and compelling presentation about his business, the world of chocolate and his plans for future growth and national presence.
The night was punctuated by a chocolate tasting led by by Chef Toury. The participants tasted 5 uniquely delicious truffles, and learned about the process of making truffles using premier cru ingredients. Participants learned about the Voila Chocolate experience but also gained insight into the multi-faceted chocolate industry, the principles of chocolate making and the challenges and opportunities of scaling a successful business. As many of the participants are entrepreneurs themselves, the event resonated in a personal and inspiring way.
