Join us for a night at the movies! We’ll be giving artisan chocolate the red carpet treatment, with drinks, nibbles, a chocolate lover’s concession stand and a screening of the documentary “Bean to Bar: A Film About Artisan Chocolate”.
The film beautifully explores the trailblazing journeys of some of America’s craft chocolate pioneers and the renaissance they have inspired. Following the film, Madame Cocoa will lead a Q&A session with the film’s producer, Bob Ridgely, as well as two of the chocolate makers featured in the film: Art Pollard from Amano Chocolate and Rob Anderson from Fresco Chocolate. (Film running time: 54 minutes).
