Chocolats Passion (website, facebook, instagram) has leased the former Farm Truck Juice space at 189 Brackett Street. Owner Catherine Wiersema hopes to open her French chocolaterie shop sometime in September.
Wiersema founded Chocolats Passion in Massachusetts and moved the business to Portland in 2017.
According to the CP website Wiersema is,
an honors graduate of the Professional Chocolatier program at the renowned Ecole Chocolat, and also went through their rigorous Quality Assurance course, which is specifically designed for chocolate confections. More recently, I studied in Montreal with world-renowned chocolatier Ramon Morato. Study breaks help hone my creative edge and broaden chocolate horizons!
