Tache Artisan Chocolate was started in the vision of pastry chef Aditi Malhotra Ahooja. Her delicious and unique chocolates draw inspiration from her travels around the world, as well as her Indian background. Each bite-sized treat tells a story, a sensory experience so to speak of her journeys across the world! Since opening Tache in 2012, Aditi and her chocolates have taken the confectionary world by storm. She was the winner of Zagat’s 30 Under 30 Award and was selected as one of Forbes 30 under 30 game changers in Food & Wine and has competed twice for the title of “Best Young Chef in America” by Forbes Magazine. All of Tache’s selections are handcrafted in her mini Willy Wonka factory. Each chocolate is handmade from the finest ingredients in the world and is a mini work of art. Tache is also famous for its chocolate-making classes, which have gained the attention of the New York Times and Time Out Kids. Tache’s name comes from the French word “tache” which means spot, stain, or smudge. When it comes to Aditi, she always has a “tache” of chocolate smeared all over her chef’s coat.
