Meet our Vendors: Catherine and Afaf from Whisked Away Cookies

Meet Catherine and Afaf:

Meet the mother-daughter duo that are the brains behind Whisked Away cookies! Catherine and her mom Afaf started the business almost three years ago, when Catherine had just graduated with a Hospitality degree and her mom had recently finished her Patisserie course at the Cordon Bleu. They wanted to open a chocolatier business. They decided on the name, and packaging, registered the company, and were almost set, but then decided, last minute that they needed more work experience. So Catherine took a year contract in the U.S. Once she came back, she felt ready and excited to bring Whisked Away back, with the encouragement of their entire family. However, they realized there are so many amazing chocolatiers in the city and decided to pivot. They still wanted to offer high-quality chocolates and desserts, but wanted to make it more approachable and unique… and that’s when their 48-hour ganache-filled cookies were born. Their aim was always to elevate the cookie experience by using very high-quality ingredients, offering unique flavors, and ensuring every cookie tastes as delicious as the next.
