"The Enfant Terrible of the chocolate world!" - Steve DeVries

Renata Fantini

Renata started writing to me after she read Chloe's book. She is a wonderful chocolatier in Brazil. These recent pictures in the gourmet magazine, GULA, shows how "deliciosos" her "bombons" are!

She sent me this picture from the middle of the Amazon rainforest, searching for wild cacao trees with a native indian.

Here is an example of what she wrote to me: "Amy, I think that you can inspire and help a lot of people, because you are still a girl and everything you do is driven by your heart. You have done everything for just one reason: your passion, your love for chocolate and because you really have a power inside you bigger than the people who told you 'NO, you cannot do it'."
