She's the kind of mom every kid dreams about. Who wouldn't?
She can make dreams come true - whether they're made of Chocolate Fudge, Chocolate
Truffles or Chocolate Mousse. Scherry Commissariat of Scherry's always had
the talent for making chocolates and desserts. When we say `talent', we mean TALENT
because she never attended any baking or cooking classes. She learned through trial and
error and with the help of her kids, who graciously offered their services as `tasters'.
Helpful kids, they!
Starting four years ago, when her friends insisted on paying her for
the goodies they wanted her to make for them, she sure has come a long way! She did slow
down for a while, due to what she calls "sheer laziness". This hobby of hers,
recently turned into a serious business when fate demanded so. After the demise of her
husband, who she always saw as her best critic, this single mom of two kids, Dianne and
Karl, found herself reaching for the chocolate moulds again, with renewed vigor.
The result? Almond Rocks, Mixed Rocks, Mint Drops, Coffee
Walnut, Chocolate Fudge, Chocolate Truffles, Butterscotch Fudge and Chocolate Mousse.
While her sinful chocolates are priced at approx. Rs. 580/- a kilo and differ according to
the price of the ingredients used, her desserts are priced on the basis of the number of
servings. She doesn't accept orders for less than six servings because it's too much
effort for too little a quantity. Her mouth-watering Fudges cost approx. Rs. 450/- a kilo.
The Mousse is priced at Rs. 300/- and serves six people. Trifles, she says, sell fast and
have a large scope in terms of what she can do with them. She doesn't conform to the
normal fruits and experiments with peaches and strawberry with chocolate.
