Founder and chocolatier Rasmus Bo Bojesen:
It is 30 years since I “fell into the chocolate pot” thanks to the legendary monsieur Bernachon. My life took me along winding roads through hotels and restaurant kitchens in Denmark, Japan and France – and in France via Michel Troigros to Lyon, straight into the back room of one of the most prestigious Chocolatiers, monsieur Bernachon, who ran a chocolate shop with his family.
I have been working with chocolate ever since. I always wanted to mix the ingredients from the salty and the sweet cuisine to surprise people’s taste. The marriage between spices and chocolate has resulted in many surprising tasting experiences – not normally associated with classical chocolate.
In 2006 I was so fortunate to get the possibility of developing my own chocolate. I wanted to stray away from traditional chocolate taste and add my personal and subjective criteria. Chocolate is not just chocolate. Chocolate is like wine – many factors influence the final taste. Factors like the bean, the soil, the harvest, the fermenting and the climate.
For long I have had the ambition of making a high quality organic chocolate. Again I was fortunate to be presented to pure, organic cacao beans growing wild in the Amazon jungle. Oialla is a bean-to-bar product and is the result of this adventure – it has a long and mild taste and is acknowledged by leading chefs around the world. Moreover this project gave a new understanding of the whole value chain and valuable relations in the Amazon.
