Bernard Callebaut is back in the kitchen cooking up another recipe for sweet success.
The famed Belgian chocolatier of 27 years, who lives in the Calgary area, unveiled his new company, papa chocolat, just in time for the holidays at a private event last night.
“Today is a big day,” he said. “It’s happening, it’s really happening. On the business side, I am really pumped up.”
Callebaut’s original creation, Chocolatier Bernard Callebaut, was sold away earlier this year after going into receivership. Now, with the assistance of local group Podium Ventures, the upbeat entrepreneur says he’s been given a new lease on life.
“We’re looking forward to the future and to celebrating new beginnings,” he said.
