It all began in a tiny chocolate shop in Lyon, France. One of their specialties was a devilishly good “chocolat du diable” with the flavors of blood orange and ginger. After I had polished off all the ones I returned home with, I decided to recreate them myself. Later I developed new flavors, inspired by the fantastic food culture of my then home, the San Francisco Bay area, and by travels around the globe. I started making chocolate truffles on a regular basis for friends and family. Fast forward many years and a transcontinental move later, I launched Swoon in late 2018 to bring adventurous chocolates and confections to Washington DC.
