Our Community Feature for the month of September
While sharing the goodness of Finally, Truly Healthy chocolates®, our community has grown as clients have become friends.
Introducing Sachinta Fernando @sachifernando_, vegan chef, and yogi.
Find out about his chocolate favorites and his passion that have been truly inspirational for us.
At Co, we love when people tell us about their passion for the things they love. We love to see people's passion for healthy foods, and Sachinta is a true chocoholic - a vegan pastry chef who loves to share his passion for delicious food through his desserts and pastries. When he's not in the kitchen, you’ll find him on the mat practicing yoga, or he's in our shop grabbing a bite of his favorite conscious cookies or sipping our Traditional Mayan chocolate drink.
So this September, we are truly delighted to feature one of our community members. And as with all community members we feature, he is not only talented, this man is also kind and very down-to-earth.
We asked him some questions and here are his insightful responses:
Co Chocolat: How did your passion for being a pastry chef started?
Sachinta: I remember when I was young my mom used to bake when she is baking I always go to help her but I was eating more than helping. I think that’s how I find my passion watching my mom baking.
Co Chocolat: When did you start practicing Yoga? And how long have you been practicing? If you have one advice to yoga enthusiasts what will it be?
Sachinta: I started practicing yoga about 4 years ago. It was not an easy journey but if there is one advice I can give is yoga isn’t about doing a pose it’s about creating a deeper connection and awareness of ourselves.
Co Chocolat: Lastly, what are your favorite Co Chocolat products?
Sachinta: My favorite products are:
- From the chocolate bars That skinny is my favorite also
- I love the Conscious Hazelnut cookie I eat that every day.
We share with him the same values and love for honestly good chocolates while they too want our cacao farmers to prosper. These fun encounters that started with chocolates and food eventually lead to interesting and inspiring conversations. We discovered his passions through these exchanges and with our community growing bigger and more diverse each day, we figured it would just be awesome if we can inspire more people with fun and interesting features about our friends in the Co Chocolat Community.
