After I started the business I got realised very badly, that I am totally gone mad to make chocolates. So, I decided to wrap them in attractive packets and sell.
5)How many types of the recipe have you invented?
In the beginning, I have done basic chocolate making course in Pune city. I got an idea that how to use compound chocolate. And to make various type of chocolate with a yummy taste. But somewhere I didn’t satisfied with this limited knowledge:). So, I started to approach people who have good advanced knowledge about Professional looking Chocolate yes you heard right! professional Chocolate.
After all my efforts, I have met few people who got enough knowledge about chocolate. They advised me ” If you have to make some own creation then focus totally on basics and science behind the taste, you will get automatically the answer ” “Try with new things, new ingredients it’s all about Harmony between your taste and your soul, try with cocoa beans ” That’s all that the last statement made my eyes open towards the new world of chocolate. After all uncertain attempts, I have made some new varieties of bars from that day started off my business journey.
Apart of common 20 to 30 recepies I have invented 12 more chocolate recepies
Which if anyone interested I will teach through online classes.
But I would strongly recommend those who are really excited or interested, don’t do business if you thinking only you want to earn money, don’t set moto to earn only money instead of giving satisfaction, creativity to the customers.
Then this filed is not yours.
