Whatever the problem, chocolate is always the solution
French Vegan Chocolate Atelier
Please note that the dark ganache chocolates have to be consumed within 10 days. After this deadline, the shape can change (little cracks) without affecting the taste. For longer shelf life we recommend the giandujas, marzipans, mendiants and bars. View our list of products here.
The chocolatiers and pastry chefs
Tired of the comfortable life as a psychologist and physiotherapist masseur, Céline and David decided to abandon their habits to open themselves to a life of the unexpected.
They left Reunion Island (French overseas department) with their two children aged 5 and 3 to travel around the globe and enrich themselves with the difference: Cambodia, Philippines, Portugal and finally Canada where they would stay 6 months as “Woofers” (Work On Organic Farms).
They have always been passionate about the culinary arts and are more deeply interested in food in relation to human physiology, thus opening up to vegetarianism. At this point, David and Céline begin the very first “plant experiments” emanating from a passion and know-how forged over many years behind the stoves. Once their permanent residence had been granted, they returned to Canada in 2017 to the fabulous Okanagan Valley; at the first step of a journey through the universe to which challenges and adventures are presented one by one. Their participation in the One World Festival in Penticton was the first time they shared their culinary work, which succeeded in seducing tasters and changing some people’s minds about vegan products. From there, a proposal emerged to create and cook an all-vegan menu for spiritual retreats (Susan Turner Healing Retreat, Tulameen, British Columbia): starters, main courses and desserts – from breakfast to dinner – while setting up their chocolate factory project.
Profuse ideas and continuous research set the pace at Maison Mulnati, in which multiple attempts are made to obtain THE flavor-enhancing recipe.
All chocolates are therefore of the “vegan” type; with a reduced sugar content in order to best restore all the aromas. Together, they give pride of place to the fruits of the Okanagan Valley, using local and organic resources in most cases, choosing the fruits themselves from the harvesters.
Céline and David create every day in a traditional way, replacing industrial mechanics with a gestural style filled with life. It is this energy of love that they put together in their creations, in order to share it with as many people as possible.
