Hot Date: Tastings, workshops, seminars at annual Dallas Chocolate Festival on Saturday, September 14


In both love and life, money does not buy happiness. Chocolate does. That partially explains why DallasChocolate.org founder and chief evangelist Sander Wolf recently opened a rent-a-kitchen and why his annual Dallas Chocolate Festival is now in its fifth year.

This year’s one-day seminar on all things chocolate takes place Saturday, September 13, with a participating roster of 25 chocolate artisans, chocolate makers and chocolatiers, plus hands-on workshops on Sunday, September 14. (NB: if you don’t know the difference between a chocolate maker and a chocolatier, you missed the first Festival five years ago.)

Tickets for the event are $25 for adults (with 10 tasting coupons), $5 for children 12and under (with 3 tasting coupons), and $65 for VIP tickets. VIP tickets include early access to the event, a goodie bag, an event t-shirt, and chocolate samples.
