Some time ago I sat down for coffee with the very talented local pastry chef, Uzma Sharif. I had just approached her after noticing she was donating her ‘East meets West’ chocolates to a charity event we were mutually involved in, though we had never met.
She was energetic and enthusiastic about our meeting and was thrilled to share her story with me so that it could be told right here with all of you, as well. During our coffee, she offered a couple of sample bags and boxes of her exotic and unique brand, Chocolat Uzma Sharif. I felt they were too pretty to open, so my first instinct was to photograph the packaging- what a gorgeous gift these will make. In fact, I waited a couple of days before trying anything because I simply enjoyed how the eco-friendly packages were decorated.
