SF Chocolate Salon: The Review

The SF Chocolate Salon was a fun and interesting revalation. I learned that cacao grows in Hawaii, and is being used by such wonderful chocolatiers as Chocolatique and Guittard.

I now know that while I like Van Gogh Dutch Chocolate Vodka, the chocolate bacon bar left me wanting.

I discovered that there are some amazing chocolatiers here in the Bay Area and you will find out, too, as at least two of them have agreed to be interviewed!

For sure you need to check out:
Poco Dolce Toffee Squares

So Cola's Strauss Butter and Cream Filled treats, esp the Burnt Baby Burnt

Edible Love's amazing Absinthe and Elderflower (oh and a host of other delights, which we will discuss further!)

For your cookbook needs hit up the wonderful ladies of Omnivore, as Celia has collected so many she had to open a store!!

Coco-Luxe, very popular here at Kitchen Magic, will be adding wine to the tasting room for pairings, from 122 West Winery, which we look forward to enjoying.

All in all, the salon was a wonderful experience, though I did have a few minor issues: in the future I would like to see it more organized, as people were cutting in line and causing a bit of chaos.

And two I wonder if would be possible for people to not stand directly in front of tables once no longer tasting? That too would help speed things long.

I certainly look forward to more events from the gang at TasteTv!
