A Fourth Generation Gourmet Confectioner
Craig is a fourth generation confectioner who grew up in the candy business. He takes great pride in the products that he creates. Refusing to use inferior ingredients and only using the finest chocolate that he can obtain. He crafts many of the batches from classic recipes and chooses to do it the old fashioned way often using equipment that predates the 1920’s. “Candy making is becoming a lost art and I hope to continue the tradition. There really aren’t any schools for making candy and most of the knowledge is handed down from one generation to the next."
"Confectionery is very labor intensive work and many generations have not carried on the tradition and unfortunately many of the once great confectioners have faded away over time.” His passion for the work can be seen in many of the intricate pieces he creates each day.
In our candy kitchen its truly a family affair, my girls help make confections especially during the holidays. Our favorite confection to create together would be Candy Canes for Christmas. My daughters both started helping me when they were just four years old. Its a candy that is made entirely by hand, so several hands are needed. Even today the weekend we make Candy Canes is by far my favorite time of the year. Having both my girls and wife along side me, making candy all day - It doesn't get any better than that!
