Is there anything better than chocolate? We don't think so. But what goes into creating one of the world's most indulgent treats? We dive deep with Indulgence Chocolatiers owner Julie Waterman.

She tells the story of her journey to becoming a chocolatier, shares a few of her favorite flavor combinations, uncovers industry trends and explains why she's skeptical of folks who claim they don't like chocolate. Stay tuned for a strangely dark installment of the Food Porn Minute.

Lori is an avid cook whose accrual of condiments and spices is rivaled only by her cookbook collection. Her passion for the culinary industry was birthed while balancing A&W root beer mugs as a teenage carhop, fed by insatiable curiosity and fueled by the people whose stories entwine with each and every dish. She’s had the privilege of chronicling these tales via numerous media, including OnMilwaukee and in her book “Milwaukee Food.” Her work has garnered journalism awards from entities including the Milwaukee Press Club. 

When she’s not eating, photographing food, writing or recording the FoodCrush podcast, you’ll find Lori seeking out adventures with her husband Paul, traveling, cooking, reading, learning, snuggling with her cats and looking for ways to make a difference.
