Rochester Native Joins As Hedonist Chocolatier

Hannah Haaby was born and raised in Rochester, NY, but perhaps more importantly, in the kitchen and restaurant of First Taste Grill on Park Avenue. That was where she truly grew up as her mother worked in the new-closed restaurant as part of her 30+-year culinary career in the Flower City.

But Hannah doesn't consider herself a great cook. She's more of a baker, avid reader and wine enthusiast. And now, since joining Hedonist Artisan Chocolates & Ice Cream, she is a chocolatier!

Hannah came to Hedonist looking for a new adventure but within the food industry, a true passion of hers. Before working here, she was a longtime and loyal customer and always wondered what it would be like working here.

In the handful of months working here, Hannah is most curious about the science behind chocolate, especially ganache, as well as the flavor profiles that coincide with chocolate, especially those that are most unexpected. (Hannah notes that the Spice Collection is her favorite product so far due to the unique flavors.)

We're excited to have Hannah on-board! rf
