Chuao Chocolatier | Brands

Global Chuao Chocolatier Chuao Chocolatier,
Chuao Chocolatier (pronounced chew-WOW) is the first Venezuelan Chocolatier based in the United States and Southern California’s premier artisanal chocolatier. Co-founded in 2002 by Master Chef Michael Antonorsi and his brother Richard, Chuao Chocolatier is on a mission to share joy with the world through deliciously engaging chocolate experiences. The Venezuelan brothers, now San Diego residents, named the company Chuao Chocolatier after the legendary cacao-producing region of Chuao (pronounced chew-WOW) located in central Venezuela. The Antonorsi’s decision was a reflection of their commitment to both high quality and their Venezuelan family heritage. Chocolate is part their roots; their ancestors ran a small family farm that was once an important part of the criollo cacao plantation industry. Creative flavor combinations are at the heart of Chuao Chocolatier’s decadent chocolate experience including: Firecracker—a chipotle caramel fudge truffle with popping candy, a hint of salt, and dark chocolate—and Salted Chocolate Crunch, a dark chocolate bonbon filled with toasted Panko bread crumbs and olive oil ganache with a touch of sea salt.
