Lisabeth Flanagan developed a passion for chocolate at a very young age. That passion intensified when she spent a year in France and began to see the world of chocolate and desserts with new eyes. Many hours were spent in chocolatier’s shops in every city she visited in order to discover as much about European chocolate as she could. Since then, she has made it her hobby to taste hundreds of brands of chocolate bars from all regions of the world and has spent endless hours recreating some of the best desserts she tasted in Europe.
When Lisabeth and her family moved to Manitoulin Island in 2008, she saw a need in Northern Ontario for top quality artisan chocolate and richly delicious desserts. With a bachelor of commerce degree and a Masters in international business, where she focused her studies on food marketing, she decided it was time to turn her passion for chocolate into a new career.
Finnia Chocolate and Cacao’s signature product, the chocolate TOFFLE™, was created because of Lisabeth’s love of chocolate truffles, a passion for organic and Fair Trade chocolate and a need to introduce her own secret recipe for rich, dark chocolate toffee to the world. The TOFFLE™ is a treat that truly satisfies the cravings of both milk and dark chocolate lovers.
Lisabeth also writes about chocolate on The Ultimate Chocolate Blog, where she reviews new products, writes recipes, consults with new chocolate makers and chocolatiers, and stays on top of current chocolate industry news.
