Norman Love Confections
Brittany Mateika’s creative training in the chocolate world began in Naples, Florida. She took an apprentice position under her father, former Chef Philip Fincher, where she learned the foundational principles, theory, and precision of producing artisan chocolate and confections. Having the opportunity to expand her knowledge through a concentrated class under renowned chocolate confectioner Jean- Pierre Wybauw, her zeal and intensity for chocolate innovation was heightened, and she earned her way to Production Supervisor in the Naples factory where she excelled in all areas of product development and manufacturing. Several years later, Brittany accepted an extraordinary offer to join world renowned Norman Love Confections®, headquartered in Fort Myers, Florida. It is here that Chef Love has further taught Brittany the mastery and beauty of unparalleled Artistry in Chocolate® through the execution of techniques and exquisite creations that has garnered national and international acclaim.
