I was in San Fran for the 2011 Fancy Foods Show and attended the 2011 Winter Fine Chocolate Industry Association meeting. Besides getting to catch up with colleagues like Pam Williams (Ecole Chocolat) and Beth Tully (Cocoa Dolce), I got to meet Michael Recchuiti and Art Pollard (Amano Chocolate). I just love meeting and talking with other artisan chocolatiers and chocolate makers because the people are genuine, passionate and so willing to share.
And by a random chance, I met Heidi and Sarah from a new venture in Boulder, CO. We had some great conversations and I can tell that this place is going to be something special! So attention all you fans of The Art of Chocolate: Be sure to check out our new friends at Peace, Love and Chocolate…coming soon to Boulder!
And remember, life is too short to eat crappy chocolate.
