Documentary | The Art of Chocolate
I first met Cathy Yuryevich when our daughters were in the same pre-primary class in 2011. Over that year we got to know each other as our kids attended birthday parties and soccer games, not to mention the times spent outside the classroom as we waited for our kids. It was during that year that Cathy completed a chocolatiers’ course – building on confectionery making skills handed down for three generations – and Cocoa Desert was born. Over a year later, her handmade chocolate and confectionery business is thriving. Cathy makes traditional goodies, as well as specialising in native Australian flavours, including quondong, wattle seed, lemon myrtle and gumleaf oil, which are combined with Belgian chocolate.
I had a great afternoon laughing, chatting, and photographing Cathy at work (thanks Cathy!).
