On Thursday, November 14, 1013, Caputo’s Market will host the 2nd Annual Chocolate Festival at their downtown location.
I’m especially excited for this year’s festival because they will be highlighting one of my very favorite artisan chocolatiers, Ritual Chocolate. Park City native Robbie Stout and his partner, Anna Davies, created Ritual Chocolate, which is based in Colorado. They make four single origin bars, Costa Rica (my favorite), Belize, Balao and Madagascar.
Each of the bars will be featured in a dish created by local chefs:
Costa Rica | Naked Fish Team, in collaboration with Viet Pham, Food Network Star and Iron Chef Slayer, and chef of Forage and Ember + Ash.
Belize | Chef Ryan Lowder of Copper Onion.
Balao | Chefs Carter Light and Serge Smith of Silver Restaurant.
Madagascar | Leslie Seggar of Tulie Bakery.
There will also be four locally produced beverage components to complement the chocolate extravaganza – High West Distillery, Epic Brewery, Libation Inc.’s Francis Fecteau and Charming Beard Coffee.
All proceeds from the festival will be donated to the Heirloom Cacao Preservation Program which promotes protection of threatened heirloom strains of cacao in their native growing regions.
