The GOODS from Chez Christophe
Burnaby, BC | Love is in the air and our creativity has blossomed with romantic chocolate showpieces and desserts. Our beautifully designed chocolate showpieces are sure to please all ages and feature a mix of abstract and traditional styles. Showpieces such as our handcrafted “Love Dove” featuring a whimsical dove hugging a hollow airbrushed red heart and a more traditional abstract handcrafted design of “Be my Diamond” are available now until February 14th.
This year we have created two stunning limited edition desserts designed to be shared and available for purchase February 13 and 14th. The “Garden of Love” replicates love blossoming from the garden.

About Chez Christophe
The story of Chez Christophe is a story of love and passion – your Artisans love for sharing his creations and a little bit of his Swiss origins by introducing you to a small taste of Switzerland. Christophe Bonzon discovered chocolate at the age of ten when he was helping his mother make chocolate truffles as a gift for Christmas. Since then the passion for sweet food never left him. Christophe is a Swiss trained “Confectioner” or in more familiar terms Pastry Chef/Chocolatier. Alongside chocolate another of his passions is creating artistic sculptures with sugar. For the meticulous Christophe, his art lies in “the freedom of creativity and my passion for creating artistic sculptures with sugar and chocolate – the opportunities to transform are endless.”
Christophe’s resumé is studded with a decade full of intense apprenticeships and coursework in the fine art of pastry and chocolate, both in his native Switzerland and in France. Amongst many other institutions he has studied under some of Europe’s grand masters at Zurich’s Chocolate Academy, and at l’Ecole du Grand Chocolat Valrhona in France. Various professional postings followed, including as pastry chef at Confectionary Schneider in Switzerland, followed by Choux Cafe in Western Australia. Christophe worked as an Executive Pastry Chef at one of the finest French Pastry Shops in Perth.
More recently Christophe was the Executive Pastry Chef at the award-winning CinCin Restorante in Vancouver, Canada. Christophe is a firm believer that you are constantly learning throughout your life for the learning curve never ends.
