Kate Weiser, the Dallas chocolatier who did notable work for Chocolate Secrets on Oak Lawn Avenue, is launching her own eponymous spot at Trinity Groves. Kate Weiser Chocolates is slated to open in the fall, and Weiser will be sampling her artisanal chocolates at a tasting event at Trinity Groves on May 30.
At her new spot, she’ll be doing filled chocolates, sometimes called bonbons, as well as fudge. Her chocolate will come from Valhrona.
“We’ll focus on familiar flavors with a new twist,” Weiser says. “It’ll taste like something you grew up with, but presented in a way you’ve never seen before. My bonbons will be homey, like Key lime pie, but done in an artistic, hand-painted way. I’ll be doing fudge, but presented in beautiful, bright colors.”
She’s been working with contractors and designed her kitchen “from top to bottom,” she says. “It’s about 1,000 square feet, and it’ll have an open kitchen so that customers can see us making chocolate back there. I’ve been involved in every facet. I’ve been meeting with web designers, the packaging company. I’m having so much fun.”
