Curated Chocolate Pairings
Jan. 28, 2023
Valentine’s Day is approaching, and that has us thinking about our very favorite food: chocolate. We like it in drinks, in cakes, and especially in its undiluted bar form. So it’s no wonder we have our eye on this Sunday’s chocolate and local craft beverage event at the Botanic Garden at Historic Barns Park in TC, where Grocer’s Daughter of Empire will be pairing delectable chocolatey bites with spirits, wine, and beer from MAWBY, Iron Fish Distillery, Stormcloud Brewing Company, and Aurora Cellars. Why the team-up with the gardens? Grocer’s Daughter co-owner Jody Hayden is an expert in bean-to-bar chocolate farming and creation, serving on boards and committees for organizations like the Heirloom Cacao Preservation Fund and the Ecuador Cacao and Chocolate Summit. Tickets are $49 for members and $59 for the public for the Feb. 5 event, and more info can be found at thebotanicgarden.org/events.
