The Dallas Chocolate Conference & Festival, presented by DallasChocolate.org, will take place on October 26, 2013, at the Addison Conference Centre. This will mark the 4th time for the popular event that includes specialty classes, discussions, and activities led by some of the chocolate industry’s most reputable experts. And tastings. Lots of time to taste chocolate from a wide variety of purveyors.
The Chocolate Conference includes a Chocolatiers’ Roundtable — a free-flowing panel discussion with all participating chocolatiers. Adrienne Newman “Madame Cocoa” will return as the Chocolate Conference’s Mistress of Ceremonies. While all classes are included with a ticket purchase, space is limited and is on a first-come, first-seated basis.
This year they have added a hands-on, limited-seating class on Sunday, October 27. Scott Moore, Jr. of Tejas Chocolate and Alice Nystrom of Dandelion Chocolate will instruct the “Bean-to-Bar Chocolate-Making” class. ($125)
Tickets range from $20-$50 for adults and $10-$20 for children under 12 and are available at DallasChocolate.org.
