In our third Under the Big Sky bonus video, Wlady and Shannon Grochowski share their passion for creativity and playfulness at the heart of their chocolate creations including some delicious dinosaur themed chocolates. 

La Châtelaine Chocolat is an artisan chocolaterie. A Frenchman and his American wife created La Châtelaine after longing for the delectable chocolates from childhood. 

Wlady and Shannon Grochowski started La Chatelaine in Bozeman, Montana in 2006. Handcrafting artisan European chocolates year-round in their downtown shop. Wlady and Shannon, who were trained by renowned pastry chefs such as Pierre Prevost and Sébastien Gaudard in Paris, find inspiration in the natural surroundings and wild landscapes of Montana. 

Visitors will find chocolates that are not only delicious works of art, but also created with care and love. Some of the choices include the Montana Mint, which is a mint infusion wrapped in dark chocolate and topped with candied mint, or the Port Wine, which is tawny port in a dark chocolate ganache and sprinkled with cocoa powder.

La Chatelaine has been featured in Food & Wine, Victoria, Big Sky Journal and numerous other publications. La Châtelaine Chocolat was recently named 2013 Best Chocolatiers and Confectioners in the USA, and has won several awards in San Francisco and Seattle. La Chatelaine’s two Bozeman-based chocolateries are located at 110 South Rouse Ave., and in the Lobby of The Baxter downtown
