A few weeks ago our owner & chocolatier, Nicole Patel, was on Good Day Austin discussing Delysia Chocolatier’s partnerships with local businesses. From Con Olios’ balsamic vinegar truffles to our Salt Lick BBQ’s dry rub dark chocolate bark, we have created unique chocolates using local ingredients. Click on the video above to learn more.
Nicole Patel is the proprietor of and chocolatier for Delysia Chocolatier. In 2006 while pregnant with her first son, Nicole made a batch of chocolate truffles as holiday gifts. To the delight of friends and family, she continued to create chocolates as a way to relieve stress from her corporate engineering job. In 2008, a chance trip to Becker Vineyards led to Nicole being the first in Texas to make truffles using local wines. Within five years, what started as a hobby turned Delysia into one of the Top Ten Chocolatiers in the Americas, as selected by the International Chocolate Salon.
