Experience fine dining chocolates anytime, anywhere.

Our Story

Ori created Costello + Hellerstein chocolate truffles in 2014. As a classically French trained chef, Ori worked in restaurants across London, dined many high-profile clients and has written his own book. His aim is for everyone to experience fine dining chocolates anytime, anywhere; he creates the taste, you create the moment.

Ori meticulously developed these 6 flavours of chocolate truffles, considering the taste combinations and texture of each. He takes care to understand the origin of all the ingredients and is proud to ensure the truffle quality is mirrored in the sophisticated 100% recyclable packaging.

Ori Hellerstein’s passion for food started from a young age. As a young boy he would often be found helping out in his mother’s delicatessen in Israel. He remained loyal to the food industry and by his early 20s he was managing a successful restaurant in Jerusalem. But it was whilst travelling in Central America where his culinary spark was ignited - this was the defining moment when he knew food was his life.

His love affair for fine food saw him move to London where he graduated as a chef at the renowned French cookery school, Le Cordon Bleu. Highly skilled with extensive experience, Ori joined Galvin at Windows, a Michelin star restaurant in London, where he worked as a pastry chef specialising in breads, cakes and petit fours.

After several years of working as a pastry chef in London, Ori settled in the Cotswolds, England, with his family. Here he set up a bakery school and started his first food business, selling breads and confectionery locally. Ori is known as The Artisan Baker in his home town - a name taken from the title of his book, where he shares the secrets behind his mouth-watering recipes inspired by his culinary travels across the world.

As demand for his confectionery soared, it was time for Ori to establish his own brand of hand-crafted truffles. Named after his wife, Costèllo + Hellerstein was launched.
