It’s back–the most chocolatey time of year! We were thrilled to host the 2023 Chocolate Extravaganza. We can’t even begin to believe this is the 14th annual celebration of this event. It just can’t be true!
We love having so many gourmet chefs and chocolatiers at our store during this event. And we love having all of you come and learn everything there is to know about one of our most favorite ingredients. Classes were so amazing and we all learned so much. Another great year in the books!
In addition to classes, had Guittard at the store all weekend to talk chocolate and answer all of your questions. Then we will also had Gozney set up in the parking lot doing some sampling and demos. Inside we had demos, and classes, and workshops going almost non-stop. We have linked all the recipes for the demo classes below so you can more easily reference them. We hoped you enjoyed all the delicious treats and took home all the chocolate you need for your Holiday baking. Thanks so much for your suppot. Already looking forward to next year!
