Rachel Rifat is devoted to luxury and gratification of the senses. Her food industry experience began in 1991 as a director for Carlsberg Brewing China. In 1997, she started a pet food company. In 1999, she was awarded the title, Los Angeles Business Woman of the Year and was written about in The Wall Street Journal, People Magazine, Entrepreneur Magazine, and The Los Angeles Times.

Currently, Rachel's time is spent discovering the world's most fabulous chocolates. With her Chocolate Snob Blog, she is able to reveal her irreverent mantra that “life is too short for bad chocolate."
