Fall Chocolate Salon Tickets Giveaway!

The Fall Chocolate Salon at Fort Mason in San Francisco offers a fantastic opportunity to try, buy and learn about chocolate in many forms from bars to confections to beverages. I've participated many times as a judge for the awards and moderating panels and discussions by some chocolate luminaries including people like Art Amano of Amano Artisan Chocolate and Gary Guittard of Guittard Chocolate Company. 

It's fun to see what some of my favorite chocolatiers are creating and and to discover new treats. 

Here are some of my top picks:

Amano Artisan Chocolates for their exquisite bars and luscious hot chocolate

Clarine's Florentines for the best florentine cookies ever
Clarine's Florentines

Charles Chocolate for his toasted nutty chocolate bars

Feve Artisan Chocolatier for their delicate confections like their award winning chocolate covered rosemary caramel

Neo Cocoa for delicate but intense truffle squares in flavors like zested lime and warm ginger root

Nuttyness for their chocolate covered marzipan bars 

New confections to try this his year include bourbon truffles from Charles Chocolates and pumpkin spice truffles from Neo Cocoa.
