Mayana - Hand-Made Toffee
You don’t need to plan an extravagant vacation to visit Belgium if you are looking for gourmet, melt-in-your-mouth, luxury chocolates. Flip over the box and you’ll see that they are indeed made locally.
Mayana Chocolate is run by husband and wife team, Daniel and Tamara Herskovic, who are as is love with chocolate as they are with each other. Daniel takes world class chocolate, adds his culinary finesse and creates the edible treasure of Mayana. Tamara brings her interior architecture schooling and event planning career to design and radiate the experience of Mayana. She fashions the chocolate packaging and custom designs and brings warm communication to all clientele.
They formed both a partnership both in life and in the culinary world after they initially met working a dining event together. Daniel remembers that he was instantly won over by Tamara’s smile as she passed through the hallway that evening.
Tamara later went on to start a very successful event planning company in Chicago with well known clients in entertainment, politics, and industry. More recently, she has also followed through with another passion and received her 200 hour yoga teacher certification.
Daniel had already been building a chef career in some of the top restaurants on the three coasts of New York, San Francisco, and Chicago. He had recently launched his own private catering business and later, with Tamara, began to create elaborately orchestrated dinners for Chicago’s well known clientele.
