It is officially fall!  At Stella Leona that means that we are scurrying around finalizing preparations for new holiday chocolates and gifts for you.  We have some big events coming up in the next six weeks that we are quite excited about and that you should know about.

There will be more to come about each event, but in this post I’d like to highlight just one of them—the Chicago Fine Chocolate Festival.  Stella Leona Artisan Chocolates will be exhibiting at the 3-day show November 16, 17 & 18 at Navy Pier, Chicago.  We are sooooooo excited!!!

Some highlights of the show:

Educational sessions will be offered by the Fine Chocolate Industry Association (FCIA), ranging from small batch chocolate making from bean to bar, sustainability in chocolate, the lifecycle of chocolate from the farm to table and more.

The Fine Chocolate area will feature products from FCIA members and other top artisan chocolatiers from the US and around the world (including Stella Leona!!!).

Pairings Pavilion:  Guest will learn how to pair and taste the nuances of fine chocolate with not only wine, but with beer, coffee, tea and more.

The Story of Chocolate will be presented by the National Confectioners Association’s Chocolate Council.  The French Pastry School will be putting their art on display with exquisite sculptures made exclusively of chocolate for all to enjoy.

These are only a few of the opportunities you can find at the show.  To learn more about the Chicago Fine Chocolate Show click here.  You can also find it on Facebook or Twitter.  We hope to see you there!!!
