“Chocolate is my passion,” says Norman Love, who dreamed of making chocolate that was visually stunning as well as delicious. And so a hand-painted moulded chocolate dream was born.
Norman Love has been producing beautiful handcrafted chocolate in Fort Myers, Florida, USA since 2001.
With an emphasis on artistry, premium ingredients, and innovative flavour combinations, the renowned chocolatier has earned significant acclaim for his edible masterpieces which are molded and then filled with the finest chocolate imported from Belgium, France, and Switzerland. The pumpkin white chocolate bonbon is almost too gorgeous to eat. Using only the freshest ingredients, his recipes call for pureed raspberries, bananas, ginger, caramel, passionfruit, and hazelnuts, to name a few.
An early love of art and baking first inspired Norman Love to pursue a career in the culinary world. After learning the craft of pastry making in France, he accepted the role of corporate executive pastry chef at The Ritz-Carlton. During his 13 year tenure with the luxury hotel, Love oversaw all pastry and baking operations, opening 30 resort pastry kitchens across the globe.
In 2001, the culinary virtuoso left the corporate world and entered into private enterprise. His adventurous flair and love of the avant-garde stood him in good stead. Originally intending to sell wholesale to acquaintances he had made in the restaurant industry, Love quickly realized that there was great consumer demand for the ultra-premium chocolates he was producing, and opened his flagship chocolate salon. In the 16 years since, Norman Love Confections has opened three additional chocolate salons, along with an artisan gelato shop.
Norman Love Confections has been named the best premium chocolate company in the United States six times since 2006.
