Founded in 2016, KARAT was formed from very humble beginnings in the basement kitchen of West Kelowna’s Mission Hill Winery. With a few 3kg bags of top quality chocolate from Valrhona, and a few simple tools KARAT was created. With the support of friends, family, colleagues, and a caring community, the dream began to grow. Julian and the Karat team would gain notoriety for expanding, elevating and reviving Kelowna’s pastry scene. Over the last few years, KARAT has been focused on creating the freshest ,quality handmade confections, pastries and desserts , building lasting partnerships with local businesses and providing an artistic outlet for young chefs and chocolatiers along the way.
