Stay tuned for more exciting news from Thomas Haas throughout the fall as the renowned pâtissier and chocolatier celebrates a special series of career milestones by giving thanks to his loyal customers, fans and friends with exclusive events, giveaways and specials. It’s been 20 years since Haas was first lured to Vancouver as Executive Pastry Chef at the Four Seasons Hotel, where he met his partner in life and business, Lisa. It’s also been 15 years since the duo launched the eponymous business, and in 2015 their flagship North Shore chocolaterie, pâtisserie and café marks its tenth anniversary, while their sister café in Kitsilano moves past its fifth year in business.
About Thomas Haas Chocolates & Pâtisserie
An internationally acclaimed, fourth-generation pâtissier who received an early education in the delicate art of hand-crafting pastries and chocolates in the kitchen of his family’s café in Germany, Thomas Haas went on to apprentice and work in Michelin-starred restaurants in Europe and North America before settling in Vancouver and opening his own namesake chocolaterie, patisserie and café. Haas — Vancouver Magazine’s Pastry Chef of the Year in 2011, ’13, ’14 and ’15 — uses only the finest raw ingredients sourced both locally and from around the globe and, in keeping with family custom, eschews the notion of assembly lines and mass production techniques, instead trusting in a talented team of pastry chefs and chocolatiers whose finesse and sensitivity is lovingly expressed in every hand-spun confection. Thomas Haas products are exclusively available at both his Kitsilano and North Vancouver cafés as well as select leading hotels and restaurants across North America. http://thomashaas.com
