Meet Patty, Owner and Head Chocolatier

What is Telluride Truffle’s story? The idea began in the 90s, when I was the assistant pastry chef at a 4-star hotel in Telluride. The pastry chef at the time (a mad man with a sweet heart) taught me how to make truffles or his rendition of them.

So, one summer evening, I took truffles to a social gathering. People were asking who made these “chocolate things” and then finally some guy yelled, holding one up in the air “who made this?” At that point, I figured maybe I should look into this idea of selling them. So – I got some good Belgian chocolate and started experimenting.

Our truffles are fresh. In fact, because they do not have waxes or preservatives, they only have a shelf life of one month. My employees and I care a great deal about every truffle we make. I sincerely hope you like them as much as I do — and yes, I still eat them. I’ve eaten a great deal of these over the last two decades and I STILL love them.
