Meet Our Chocolate Guru, Eagranie Yuh - Eagranie is also senior editor with Edible Vancouver and Wine Country and is the Sweet Spot columnist with the Vancouver Courier. You'll find her writing in various publications, notably The Washington Post, and Best Food Writing 2012 and 2014. Before becoming a professional writer, Eagranie was a pastry chef and chocolatier in some of Canada's top kitchens, including a gig at the 2007 Beard Awards, assisting the chefs of Le Cordon Bleu Ottawa. She has a master's degree in organic chemistry, which gives her a unique perspective on flavor, food, and science. Little-known fact: seven years of working in chemistry labs temporarily knocked out her sense of smell. One of North America's leading chocolate educators, Eagranie Yuh is the author of The Chocolate Tasting Kit. She's been cited in publications including the Chicago Tribune, The Seattle Times, and The Globe and Mail, and has been featured on America's Test Kitchen Radio and CBC Radio One. As the Canadian partner and a grand jury member of the International Chocolate Awards, she has travelled the world judging chocolate competitions.
Eagranie lives in Vancouver, Canada, and blogs at thewelltemperedchocolatier.com. She has a weakness for whisky, dogs with short legs, and random acts of dancing.
