Perk up your ears, all you Candy Addicts living in Los Angeles. Next Sunday (December 9th, that is), SoCal chocoholics can gather and rejoice at the Pasadena Center for L.A.’s first ever Luxury Chocolate Salon!
This “Salon” seems to be a fancy-schmancy convention where folks can sample a huge variety of artisan, gourmet, and premium chocolates. Seriously, my mouth started watering when I read the list of some of the participating vendors: L’Artisan du Chocolat, Chuao Chocolatier, Guittard… the luscious list goes on and on.
There are going to be demonstrations, chocolate and wine tastings, and keynote speakers. And no L.A. schmoozefest would be complete without a film screening – this one’s the premiere of a short film entitled Searching for the Heart of Chocolate.
Needless to say, we will be there, representin’ in all our Candy Addict glory. If you live in the area, we highly suggest you try to make it, too – tickets are very reasonably priced and even cheaper if you buy them pre-sale. If you aren’t an Angelino, don’t fret. The Chocolate Salon is based in San Francisco, and is planning to hit Seattle, New York, and other cities soon. If you’re as serious about chocolate as we are, though, this may be just the excuse you need to come out and soak up some California sunshine – and California chocolate.
