The International Chocolate Salon honored Women in Chocolate, and presented several selected honorees with THE CHOCOLATIER’S AWARD on September 30th at the Los Angeles Chocolate Salon. According to The International Chocolate Salon, the recipients were selected based on either having received numerous Chocolate Salon awards over the years, or having made a significant impact in the world of taste and chocolate, particularly in the Los Angeles area. It also spotlighted the growing number of women entrepreneurs, chocolatiers, confectioners, and pastry chefs that the Los Angeles Area and Southern California has supported.

French-born Vanessa (Hnina) Morgenstern-Kenan founded HNINA GOURMET in 2013 with the aim of bridging the gap between health and gourmet. When pregnant with twins she was craving chocolate but could not find any gourmet yet healthy options on store shelves. Necessity is the mother of invention and this mother did some inventing, first for her own chocolate consumption but soon for discerning chocolate lovers everywhere.
