Meet the Maître

A sneak peek into the life of a Lindt Maître Chocolatier.

Lindt Maître Chocolatier Stefan Bruderer is an expert on all things chocolate. Here, he shares his holiday traditions, gift-giving ideas and favourite chocolate pairings.

What’s a fun tradition in your family over the holidays?

Every year, I give my daughter a Lindt Advent Calendar. She’s only three years old, so it’s a new tradition, but she doesn’t always agree with opening only one door per day!

What’s your go-to gift for friends and family?

I love to give a bottle of red wine with a bar of Lindt Excellence 70% Cacao Dark Chocolate. The combination really is the perfect pairing for your senses.

What’s your favourite Lindor Chocolate Truffle?

The red Lindor Milk Chocolate Truffle is at the top of my list. It’s a Christmas classic. I always have some on hand for surprise guests and after-dinner cravings.

What recipes will you be making from Lindt The Season?

I’m a big fan of tiramisu, so I’ll definitely make the Lindor Milk Chocolate Tiramisu for my family. The Lindt Panettone Baked French Toast will also be making a brunch-time appearance at our table.

How do you know when you’ve developed something great?

If I’ve got fireworks on my palate, I know it’s a great combination.

How much chocolate do you really eat?

I taste chocolate all day, even for breakfast. It’s the only way to figure out what ingredients work best together!
