2014 Dallas Chocolate Conference and Festival
If Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is your idea of heaven, the Dallas Chocolate Conference & Festival is for you. The festival is an annual event designed to raise awareness and appreciation for the amazing work of local and national fine chocolate craftsmen.
The 2014 edition will feature more chocolatiers and chocolate makers than ever before. Attendees will enjoy sampling from the wall-to-wall chocolate from local and national artisans. Kids can even enjoy making their own chocolate treats at a special interactive kids’ table.
Chocolate makers scheduled to appear at the event include: Art Pollard (Amano Artisan Chocolate, Utah); Ben Rasmussen (Potomac Chocolate, Virginia); Kristen Hard (Cacao Atlanta); Scott Moore, Jr. (Tejas Chocolate, Houston); and Santiago Peralta (Pacari Chocolate, Ecuador).
Included with a ticket purchase is a full day of classes and demonstrations that take place in an adjoining room of the Addison Conference Centre. Classes are great for beginners or dedicated chocolate fanatics. While all classes are included with a ticket purchase, space is limited and is on a first come, first seated basis.
