Our Original Chocolatier
Jin Caldwell, Master Chocolatier, award-winning Pastry Chef and founder of JinJu Chocolates, is a native of Korea who, as a young passionate culinary graduate sought a place to channel her creativity. Jin’s chocolate journey began under the guidance of some of the world’s top Pastry Chef’s in Las Vegas. Her diligence, love of chocolate and creativity led her to become a Chocolatier and Pastry Chef at Bellagio Hotel and Wynn-Las Vegas Resort producing award-winning chocolate masterpieces, spectacular sculptures and delectable desserts.
“Having worked with some of the top pastry chef’s in Las Vegas, my admiration for their talents, creativity and visions led me to being a chocolatier. They taught me the meaning of a chocolatier. It is not about a chef who makes chocolates. It is about hard work, dedication to my craft, and following my passion to produce the highest quality chocolates.” - Chocolatier, Jin Caldwell
To pursue her chocolate passion, Jin became Master Chocolatier for Ethel’s chocolates and for six years provided product innovation direction to MARS Chocolate, Inc. In that time, she won numerous awards and was honored to be the only female on the 2009 “One of the Top 10 Chocolatiers” in North America by Pastry Arts and Design Publication. In addition, she led the only all female team to a silver medal in the 2007 National Pastry Team Championship.
In 2011, Jin left the corporate world and launched her own business, JinJu Chocolates. Her philosophy is simple, “exceptional chocolate should be an experience of all five senses and treasured for simplicity of ingredients”. Jin’s passion for producing premium quality artisan chocolates is understood in each piece she creates. She believes in using only the freshest, all-natural ingredients, sourced from seasonal local ingredients that are preservative free with premium Swiss chocolate. She is proud to be a boutique chocolatier ensuring the quality, taste, and designs in every piece.
