Christopher Curtin

Christopher Curtin is proud to share his art and experience with you through Éclat Chocolate. His journey to become a Master Chocolatier began more than two decades ago. He set out from Madison, Wisconsin to the House of le Companion du Devoir, the premier guild for Pastry Chefs in France. It was here that he worked alongside the best journeyman pastry chefs in Europe and became the first American to be awarded the honor of German Master Pastry Chef and Chocolatier in Cologne, Germany. Now in the realm of the world’s top chocolate makers, Christopher continued to learn from the masters, honing his skills in the finest chocolate houses of Belgium, Switzerland, France, Germany, and Japan, and sharing in the greatest of secrets and techniques — secrets and techniques that make eating Éclat Chocolate a unique experience you won’t forget.
