San Francisco, CA
THE CHOCOLATIERS OF SAN FRANCISCO
In celebration of Good Food Month, join Epicuring as we take you behind-the-scenes and introduce you to three of our favorite local makers of artisan chocolate confections 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. 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 Co., 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 chocolate turrón.
Kathy Wiley, founder and chocolatier of Poco Dolce is the visionary behind the 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.
The Chocolatiers Tour is hosted by Epicuring, a soon to be launched site where inspiring food experiences across California will be featured. The tour will be led by Laiko Bahrs and Susie Wyshak, California food epicurists and founders of Epicuring.com.
$10 of each ticket will be donated to La Cocina to enable aspiring food entrepreneurs.
Attendance is limited and pre-purchased tickets are required.
