    Divine and Delicious Chocolat @FoodFete

    After much anticipation and pages and pages of my day planner, Nov 10 finally came and I was off to Food Fete’s Chocolat extravaganza! At HeyDoYou we are no strangers to chocolate. We were at the Chocolate Ball in 07 and 08, Bella made a chocolate cake, chocolate x whiskey, obsession with Max Brenner, the muggy cake

    Delicious chocolatiers from all over were exhibiting their craft and there was a great mix of people and cacao!

    Chef Espiritu with Valrhona

    We had the opportunity to enjoy some new chocolates and meet with the chocolatiers. One of the best guided tasting experiences I have ever had with CHOCOLATE.

    Divine Chocolate, fair trade chocolate owned in part by the farmers of Kuapa Kokoo in Ghana. So amazing.

    The symbols on the Divine chocolate wrappers are traditional West African Adinkra symbols that mean strength, destiny, leadership, family etc…

    Can you see me in the frenzy?


    Valrhona had these irresistible chocolate, apricot, panna cotta goodies I just had to try!
