Fat, Sweet and Gooood: Chocolate Festival

Mar 4, 2014
Ashland Springs Hotel

Chocolate is not just for February 14th and October 31st.  Not by a long shot. 

We may be in the middle of a chocolate renaissance, as chefs around the world find new ways to prepare chocolate, in exciting new combinations with other foods.

The artisan chocolate industry in Southern Oregon has found its sweet spot.

Ten years ago about the only local chocolate you could buy was made by Harry & David, Endangered Species, or Dagoba. The Oregon Chocolate Festival, which celebrates its 10th year from March 7-9, has helped nurture a local artisan chocolate industry and granted new shelf space to many new startups.
