Before going freelance, Mary Matson was a senior designer at Kate Spade. Her husband, Matt Even, is an art director at New York’s Wieden + Kennedy. Still, in the design-savvy food world they are better known as Mary & Matt, a Brooklyn based couple that does homemade chocolates in small batches.
Their chocolate making began as a hobby more than 10 years ago, but was transformed into a business proudly named Chocolate Editions in 2009. Now they use a Mole d’Art warmer that was suggested to them by Jacques Torres himself. Their fame has arrived till Europe where sometime ago they created a special edition for Le Grande Epicerie de Paris.
“We do think of our chocolate making as design work. We think of the way we present flavor combinations, like in our striped bars, as a visual and flavor design. Also, like our design work, we like to have a conceptual reason for the chocolates” says Matt. The only difference? They can't eat their traditional design work!
