About Kimberly and Formosa Chocolates
On a whim, Kimberly enrolled in a chocolate bootcamp course at the International Culinary Center in NYC in the fall of 2018 and quickly became obsessed with art and science of making fine chocolates. This led to further classes with Chefs Melissa Coppel and Martin Diez, and even more training with Ecole Chocolat in Belgium. She eventually left her job as a psychiatrist at Kaiser Permanente to focus her attention on chocolate and starting her own chocolate company.
Formosa Chocolates handcrafts luxury chocolates in Oakland, California. We are deeply influenced by our Taiwanese-American heritage, with emphasis on warm Taiwanese hospitality and gift-giving traditions. Thus, only the highest quality ingredients and stylish presentation will do! Our chocolates are perfect whether treating loved ones on a special occasion, or simply part of a self-care ritual on a Wednesday.
