Hungarian-born Dr Hanna Frederick is Australiasia’s most innovative and passionate chocolatier, world famous for her ground breaking taste sensations and more-ish chocolate delights. Hanna gained her skills in Australia and Hungary, before moving to New Zealand in 2003, giving up her career as a food chemist to make chocolate; learning to combine traditional tastes of Europe with those from Down Under.
Now Hanna delights in the creation of boutique artisan hand-made chocolates, infusing Viennese and Asia-Pacific flavours.
In New Zealand she became famous for her unique flavour creations such as native Maori Horopito and Kawakawa, dark beer truffles, deer velvet chocolates, and most recently venison salami truffles.
She also created a line of adult chocolates with 10 different types of alcohol and an aphrodisiac chocolate. All were hand made from a boutique professional kitchen which she designed and built in a refurbished shipping container converted into a chocolate laboratory on her own suburban property in Auckland.
Hanna moved her operation to Australia in 2010 where she began setting up her boutique baroque chocolate shop – the Szalón – in Melbourne.
