Ismael Neggaz Ismael Neggaz
Chocolatier and Co-Owner of Chocotenango

From the first time Ismael Neggaz bit into a filled chocolate, he was hypnotized. Just 10 at the time, Ismael was fascinated by the treat and how the filling could possibly get inside. That spark of curiosity led him to culinary school in the UK, his own artisanal chocolate business in DC, and a career as a professional chef that has spanned more than two decades and four continents.
