D'liteful Chocolat was founded in San Marcos, California by Chef Dayleen Coleman who realized her love and affinity for all things culinary at a young age. Determined to explore that most delectable of creative outlets, Dayleen moved to England, where she studied a myriad of culinary techniques at the famed Le Cordon Bleu in London. Upon completion of her studies, she immediately sought out and found opportunities to further her knowledge and skills within the demanding culinary industry. Through that experience she found that her passion truly lay in the eternally-complex world that is chocolate making. Upon her return to the States, Dayleen wanted to share her love of patisserie and chocolate with her community by starting her own small business.
