You can visit them all January 22nd, in San Francisco!
In celebration of Good Food Month, please join culinary consultant Laiko Bahrs and yours truly on an insider Chocolatiers of San Francisco tour. We’ll experience three wonderful local makers of artisan chocolate confections, pastry, and preserves in the Dogpatch neighborhood of San Francisco:
Shawn Williams, chocolatier and co-founder of Au Coeur Des Chocolats creates unforgettable European-style chocolates filled with delectable combinations like banana caramel and candied orange and hazelnut crunch.
A master of patisserie as well as confection, Shawn will demonstrate
- how to mold a chocolate bar,
- make decadent hot chocolate with cream, and
- assemble and torch s’mores.
We’ll taste all of these as well as his assorted chocolates.
Pastry chef and chocolatier William Werner is the owner of Tell Tale Preserves, the soon-to-open pâtisserie, delicatessen and café on Maiden Lane and the Tell Tale Society, a monthly subscription bag filled with seasonally influenced preserves, confections, cookies and cakes, both sweet and savory. William will walk us through his production facility, share his vision, and we’ll taste his chocolate and coffee confiture.
Kathy Wiley, founder and chocolatier of Poco Dolce is the visionary behind the hugely popular handmade chocolate tiles that are on the savory side of sweet. Kathy will take us on a tour of her chocolate factory and we’ll taste her addictive chocolate confections and her new chocolate bar.
$10 of each ticket will be donated to La Cocina to enable aspiring food entrepreneurs.
