Founder + CEO | Vosges Haut-Chocolat

Beginning with an apprenticeship in Spain under the direction of Ferran and Albert Adria of the famed El Bulli, I began to understand that food was a medium for transformative, visceral experiences. A perfect bite in an unexpected form could spark curiosity and open someone’s heart. It could create balance.

With Valentine’s Day around the corner spend time this year recognizing your employees achievements with the unique gift of Vosges. 

Michelle Oldham sits down with Katrina Markoff – Founder and CEO of Vosges Haut-Chocolat we discuss her story of how Vosges came to be the inspirational company it is today, the purpose, what drives her and her unique creative process.  This is one of the most unique brands out there today built to originally resemble a fashion brand but niche for foodies. Katrina’s creations span across the globe and are inclusive of various cultures, spices, and cuisines.  Her chocolate is nothing like you have ever tasted before as she continually surprises time and time again with her unique flavor creations.  If you are looking for something unique and joyful to do to appreciate your friends,  employees, or colleagues that provides a unique sensory tasting look no further.  With Valentine’s Day coming up and especially after the year we have all been through we could all use ideas on ways to spread more love internally in the workplace and externally as well.  Give the gift that makes everyone feel special – the gift of Voges Haut-Chocolat.
