About me

Amber Latner making chocolateHello to all my fellow chocolate lovers! Thank you for visiting my blog.

A little about me: I don’t work in the chocolate industry and am not a chocolate professional. I’m just an amateur chocolatier and chocolate geek who loves to eat, talk about and play around with chocolate as much as humanly possible.

While I’ve been a chocoholic for well over a decade, my formal chocolate education began in earnest in 2015 when I signed up for my first professional chocolatiering class. Around the same time, I started a 6-month stint as a chocolate apprentice at Undone Chocolate, one of Washington, D.C.’s only bean-to-bar chocolate makers.

The more I learned about chocolate, the more I realized I didn’t know. I became obsessed. Soon I found myself falling down a rabbit hole into the bean-to-bar chocolate world.

Yes, strange as it sounds, there actually is an entire subculture of chocolate-obsessed people, all thinking and blogging about chocolate more than is probably healthy for well adjusted adults.

Clearly, I’d found my people.

This blog is my way of documenting that journey… and hopefully making some new friends along the way. So please — ask me questions. Give me suggestions. Comment on my posts. Correct me when I’m wrong!

And if you want to contact me directly, I’m always available at chocolatedisorderblog@gmail.com.

Keep on nibbling, fellow addicts.
