Wlady and Shannon, who were trained by renowned pastry chefs such as Pierre Prevost and Sébastien Gaudard in Paris, find inspiration in the natural surroundings and wild landscapes of Montana. Visitors will find chocolates that are not only delicious works of art, but also created with care and love. Some of the choices include the Montana Mint, which is a mint infusion wrapped in dark chocolate and topped with candied mint, or the Port Wine, which is tawny port in a dark chocolate ganache and sprinkled with cocoa powder.
La Chatelaine has been featured in Food & Wine, Victoria, Big Sky Journal and numerous other publications.
