“I owe it all to chocolate, artbooks and young men.”
~Beatrice “Beato” Wood
That’s what the “Mama of Dada” replied when asked the secret of living to 105. Her art, spirit and love of the “reasonable and unreasonable” inspired us to create Beato Chocolates, a line of artisan creations formed from her original pottery molds and Dadaist works. Our Chocolates are handmade using fair trade local ingredients in Wood’s beloved Ojai, California.
Our retail store, named the “Beato Chocolate Lounge”, is in the Porch Gallery Ojai and serves as a comfortable lounge space where, in addition to purchasing chocolate, visitors can browse art books and current exhibitions, and attend special events.
