Pam Williams "I am delighted to be able to share with you my passion for the people whose creativity and craftsmanship are at the top of the chocolate arts."
Pam Williams

Pam Williams founded au Chocolat, a luxury chocolate business, in 1981 after moving from California to Vancouver, BC. Au Chocolat’s specialty was gourmet chocolate truffles in a multitude of flavors. Besides being the owner and running the business, Pam was the shop’s chocolatier for 10 years. Being self-taught, she spent her career experimenting and developing confections inspired by the industry, her travels and her peers.

Pam found that chocolate lovers, whether they consider themselves gourmet cooks or not, have the same endless curiosity about chocolate as she does. To satisfy their curiosity and hers, she wrote articles on chocolate and then her first cookbook, Oh Truffles by au Chocolat, which went on to be a Canadian Best Selling cookbook. Pam sold the business to a friend of a friend who loved chocolate making too—au Chocolat is still in operation today, specializing in private label and wholesale products.

As a teacher by degree, Pam led chocolate making programs, as well as courses on entrepreneurship for many different organizations, including the University of British Columbia. She worked with the University in continuing education for 9 years, focusing on online education—another passion of hers.

In 2003, as a labor of love, Pam founded Ecole Chocolat Professional School of Chocolate Arts to provide quality learning experiences focused on professional chocolate making. Besides taking care of the school, developing the curriculum and being the lead instructor, Pam researches and writes about chocolate and the chocolate business.
