City based en­tre­pre­neur, Sudha Thomas left her decade long IT ca­reer in Bel­gium and came back home ear­lier this year to set up this choco­late shop spe­cial­is­ing in Bel­gian choco­lates. Her mas­tery of the recipes came af­ter a stren­u­ous six month train­ing pe­riod with a Bel­gian choco­latier, dur­ing which time she claims to have grad­u­ated from scrub­bing the floors to per­son­ally han­dling the choco­lates for him. Sudha’s finest are soft- cored choco­lates— with fill­ings like English caramel, rasp­berry, straw­berry and pas­sion fruit. While these recipes are Sudha’s own, her Hazel­nut and Bel­gian cream- flavoured choco­lates are in­spired from the cel­e­brated Bel­gian va­ri­ety. As their fine qual­ity and metic­u­lous recipe can of­ten get a beat­ing in Chen­nai’s heat, Sudha has had to tweak the recipe to ex­tend the shelf life of her good­ies here. Nev­er­the­less, Chokobel is fast mov­ing up the list of favourite haunts for the city’s choco­late lovers.
