EXECUTIVE CHEF CHOCOLATIERBASE LOCATION: USA
CURRENT SPECIALTY: GLOBAL CAFÉ
Chef Thierry Muret has been with GODIVA since 1988 and is based in Reading, PA. Chef Muret was born in Dendermonde, Belgium and immigrated to the U.S. with his sister to open their own Belgian chocolate shop in Chicago. After five years, Chef Thierry crossed paths with GODIVA and was quickly brought on to develop new products for the iconic brand. A graduate of the Institut Technique Provincial de Droguerie-Chemie et arfumerie, Chef Muret studied chemistry, physics and crystal formation and completed a two-year confectionary apprenticeship in Antwerp. He is an expert in chocolate confectionary and ice cream. The Belgian heritage and the focus on craftsmanship and quality, with exposure to different cultures, convinced Chef Muret to leave the artisanal world and join the company and he has since then been enjoying every moment of it. Chef Muret finds inspiration for chocolate designs in the fashion industry because of its lines, flow and colors, and flavors are inspired by those he encounters in his daily life.Chocolate Soft Serve and other indulgences, GODIVA is committed to bringing the ultimate chocolate experience to the world.
