Fudge is not just for the holidays anymore. It is the ultimate gourmet comfort food and can bring wonder and joy to your heart everyday of the year!
I wanted to do something that would put a smile on everyone’s face. So, after retirement in July of 2009 I began making fudge. Dava’s Fine Fudge is sold at several retailers and events across Oklahoma.
Fudge is one of the foods from my childhood that binds together a sense of family joy and togetherness. Fudge was a very special treat served only during Christmas gatherings. The lights from the tree sparkled against the ice cycles, garlands, and ornaments and a sense of wonder that the Child was born and all was well with the world made my heart glad.
Passing on a little bit of that wonder from childhood is my greatest inspiration.
I use the best ingredients available and strive to present the 40 plus flavors in a visually attractive way. Each flavor has a story to tell and begins a new story each time someone tastes for the first time.
Where do you find inspiration?
Favorite ice creams, cakes and deserts.
Christmas brings out the wonder of childhood that I wish we could carry with us each and everyday.
If you could create your own holiday, what would it be and why?
The Giving Day. Celebrate the act of giving without anyone knowing that you gave.
How would you describe your work in three words?
Food, fun and family
