Gabriella Cugno

Chocolatier & Patissier


Gabriella Cugno

Hello, I am Gabriella, a Chocolatier with a huge passion for chocolate, creativity, and incredible flavour.

I have been a Pastry chef and Chocolatier for 15 years working at high end restaurants, patisseries, chocolateries, and world renowned five star hotels throughout my career. Within this time, I have won various prestigious awards including UK & Ireland “Junior Chocolate Master” and The Royal Academy of Culinary Arts “Young Pastry Chef of The Year”. My work has taken me to many wonderful places from Europe, to the Far East, and the Caribbean where I teach masterclasses, consult, cater for events, and work directly with cocoa farmers and cocoa producers to develop recipes for delicious chocolate.

The most recent place my work has taken me is to the Warner Bros Studios UK to be the Chocolatier for WONKA, where I designed and made the chocolates for the movie. An absolutely magical experience where I could combine my artistic background with chocolate.

What I love most about Chocolate is the incredible things that can be created with it! Chocolate brings so much joy to so many people, and for me, it is an entire experience, from opening the box, to the smell, and the burst of delicious flavour and texture. It is such a treat and I really love that my work allows me to share these experiences with others.

if I can help you with any of my services, please feel free to get in touch.
