This weekend, Cacao Art Chocolates was proud to have been part of the James Beard Foundation’s Taste America event in Miami. The event helps raise funds for a number of charities and it is held in ten cities across the country.
There were two events in Miami. The first was an elegant dinner held on Friday, Sept. 20th, prepared by some of Miami’s top chefs, in the romantic setting of the Ancient Spanish Monastery. There was also a cocktail reception and a silent auction. Ted Allen attended, as well as Miami’s own Michael Schwartz from Michael’s Genuine. Some of the luckier attendees got a goodie bag which included a mini-box of Cacao Art Chocolates (with honey cardamom and passion fruit bonbons, if you must know).
The next day was a more hands-on affair for Cacao Art: we were invited to host a sampling of bonbons at a Sur La Table location in Boca Raton. Ted Allen was there for a cooking demonstration and we were happy to let him have a big box of chocolates.
We were also fortunate to meet James Beard Foundation President, Susan Ungaro, who had many kind things to say about the chocolates (especially our crunchy honeycomb).
We loved being involved in the events and want to thank the amazing Rockaway PR for giving us the opportunity!
