Qudsia Karim

Began almost three years ago, when founder and chocolatier Qudsia Karim undertook a postgraduate course in the art of chocolate making at the Ecole Chocolat Professional School of Chocolate Arts in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Qudsia has also completed a number of courses in the field of chocolate technology at the renowned Barry Callebaut Academy and The French Pastry School in Chicago, Illinois, so as to understand the formulation of recipes.

In addition to this, Qudsia also trained under Thierry Mulphaut, a leading chocolatier in the French region of Strasbourg. In order to understand the finer details of chocolate making, Qudsia has toured various parts of the Frexch region, attending institutes such as the Ecole de Grand Chocolat Valrhona.

Her core understanding of the different palates and flavours of chocolate comes from her extensive exploration of places in Europe, from the Swiss canton of Schwyz to the German town of Baden.

Above all, Qudsia has an intricate understanding of the Dubai chocolate market, which is what helped her in creating the concept of Cocosia.

Cocosia’s mission is threefold; utilisation of only the best tools, delievering hand crafted products made by an expert team of artisans, and a passion to delight its customers.
