Chocolaterie Tessa

Chocolaterie Tessa

Next time you're on Burnet Rd, you've simply got to stop at the Chocolaterie Tessa (7425 Burnet Road, Austin, Texas 78757). It was the location of our Luxe Collection photoshoot which, of course, meant that we had to sample a few chocolates while we were there. Our Creative Director, Candice of OH! Fox Creative swore by the Italian Cherry, but my vote went to the salted caramel. 

Tessa herself was there and told us the story of how her dad got into the chocolate business years ago because he sat on a plane next to a European chocolatier and essentially hounded him for an Apprenticeship until he agreed to teach him how to make chocolate. She opened up her own shop here in Austin in 2012 and has been making gorgeous, preservative free chocolate ever since. Like this little guy:

We did actually get some work done between swooning over chocolates. 

Hanniel, who you may recognize from the Fall Lookbook, modeled for us again and was a blast to work with.
