Olivier Fernández

A pioneer of the "bean-to-bar" movement, Barcelona-based chef Olivier Fernández has traveled throughout Asia, Africa and Latin America to perfect the art of cocoa production and chocolate making, from the plantations themselves to the numerous kitchens where he's taught.

His extensive experience comes from an exceptional career as a director and teacher at the Confectionery School of the Pastry Guild in Barcelona, the prestigious institution where he completed his studies and where he now seeks to merge his classical pastry training with his Master's degree in Agronomic Engineering and Cocoa Processes.

Fernández's recurring appearances in magazines such as Pasteleria.com and So Good Magazine are clear evidence of the openness of his creativity. From chronicles of his travels, to his Mexican "día de muertos" inspired chocolate pieces, to his bold bright red lip-shaped éclairs, to his phenomenal single-origin bean-to-bar chocolate tablets, Fernández's scope knows no bounds.

Recipe: Mezcal Infused 70% Chocolate Bars

A pioneer of the "bean to bar" movement, Barcelona-based chef Olivier Fernández is always finding new techniques to rethink classic chocolate combinations. In this recipe, Fernández gives this 70% dark chocolate bar a pronounced smoky and rebellious mezcal aroma and flavor...by evaporating it! This is a wonderful, deep-flavored recipe with interesting notes that celebrate the unique cacaos that Fernández sources for his own shop as part of his constant research and love of chocolate
