Notes from the Chocolatier’s Kitchen – November


I wanted to take a moment in this month’s Notes from the Chocolatier’s Kitchen to express my gratitude and ask you to celebrate with me. I am incredibly thankful this November and Thanksgiving holiday season for so many reasons.

To my family for their love and support, thank you for all of the laughter and joy you bring into my life. After a day at the Delysia Chocolate Culinary Center, I can’t wait to come home to your smiling faces.

To my partners and customers, thank you for the support over the last six years. From purchasing Delysia Chocolatier products to spreading the word about us to family and friends, I can’t thank you enough.

I’m very excited to celebrate our first holiday season in the new Delysia Chocolate Culinary Center. I am pleased to open my doors to each of you and would like to invite you to celebrate the holiday season with me and my family. Join us for our first annual Delysia Chocolatier Holiday Event on Saturday, December 7 from 2pm – 5pm. RSVP on our Facebook event page.

Delysia Chocolate Culinary Center
Delysia Chocolate Culinary Center Public Grand Opening is December 7.

Being a mother, I wanted to create a fun event where children could interact with the best ingredient around (chocolate, of course!). Our little guests will have the opportunity to create their own chocolate bar. While their custom chocolate creation is setting, they will get to watch holiday classics and visit with Santa and one of his elves from the North Pole. In the spirit of being thankful and giving back, I do ask that our guests bring an unwrapped toy or gift that we will donate to Toys for Tots.

Thank you again for supporting Delysia Chocolatier for the past six incredible years. I look forward to sharing more chocolate and creating even more memories with you.

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.
