About Kate Weiser:
Kate Weiser began her sweet journey early in life. As she grew, so did her extensive dessert cookbook collection. Kate enjoyed baking in her family kitchen and sharing her creations with friends and neighbors. She continued her passion by attending California Culinary Academy in San Francisco. Upon graduation in 2005, she returned to her hometown and worked in various restaurants including Pachamama’s of Lawrence, Kansas and Kansas City’s 4 star restaurant, Bluestem under pastry chef Megan Garrelts and James Beard Award winner, Colby Garrelts.
Her move to Dallas brought many new and exciting experiences. After a brief stint at Stephen Pyles and an Executive Pastry Chef position at Nobu, Kate decided to hone in her skills on one thing: chocolate.
Kate began her chocolate career with an Executive Chocolatier position at Chocolate Secrets in Highland Park. While there, she was able to experiment and create a style of chocolate making that was new to the Dallas area. Her Handpainted Chocolate Collection and artistic style quickly gained attention and excitement through the DFW metroplex.
After 4 years of perfecting her chocolate craft, Kate created her own chocolate company – Kate Weiser Chocolate, in Trinity Groves in August, 2014 and has since expanded her brand to Northpark Center and coming soon to the Shops at Clearfork in early fall 2018. She is also partnering with Neiman Marcus for the 2018 Holiday season. She was named Top 10 Chocolatiers in North America by Dessert Professional Magazine in 2014 and will continue pushing boundaries to create new and unexpected ways of enjoying chocolate.
