About Chicago-based Luxury Chocolatier Veruca Chocolates
Our Chicago Storefront & Chocolate Workshop:
About the owner:
Meghan has been interested in baking and pastry for as long as anyone can remember. In high school she spent many afternoons baking items for family and friends while dreaming of one day opening her own place. Meghan is a trained savory chef having graduated from Kendall College with an associate’s degree in culinary arts in 2011. She started working in kitchens while getting her undergraduate degree at Marquette University. After graduating from Kendall, she moved to Napa, California where she would try her hand at chocolate for the first time and she instantly fell in love. After a few years away, Meghan found herself back in her hometown of Chicago and working at Veruca. Meghan has been the lead chocolatier and general manager for the last 3 years, creating and conceptualizing many of the pieces in the line today. Meghan became the owner in 2018, fulfilling her dream of one day owning her own place. Today you can find her in the kitchen helping with production or creating new products, which is her favorite part of the job.
Veruca Chocolates are made for chocolate lovers with discerning taste and an eye for beauty. Each piece is handmade from only the finest ingredients, and hand-finished to entice the eye as well as the palate. All of our products are made by hand in Chicago, Illinois.
