Here at AroundTownPasadena.com we are always hoping that you enjoy sweet and comforting weekends. For this upcoming Sunday, we have a recommendation to ensure that it happens: The Los Angeles Chocolate Salon.
This annual event is coming back to the Pasadena Civic Center for its 11th anniversary. Once you enter, you can give free range to your sweet tooth by enjoying the samples that the participants will be offering. Such samples sometimes include wine and spirits, for the 21-and-over in attendance, of course. (For a list of participants, check HERE.)
The event will start at 11 am and run until 5 pm. In the meantime you’ll have a chance to taste all sorts of chocolates, listen to panelists, and see cooking demonstrations. Defonce Chocolatier will do a presentation on edibles, for example, which you may find interesting. And Chef Nguyen Tran will be signing his book Adventures in Starry Kitchen: 88 Asian-Inspired Recipes from America’s Most Famous Underground Restaurant. Additionally, you’ll have a chance to admire the work that talented confectioners can do with chocolate, the type of thing that makes one ask: “Is it food or is it art?” (See the schedule of events HERE.)
Tickets are $20 if you buy them ahead of time HERE, or $25 at the door. Children under 6 are free, and 6-12 year-olds $10.
This is your chance to hang-out with fellow chocolate lovers. One of the very few places where having sticky fingers is just fine!
The Pasadena Civic Center is located at 300 Green Street in Pasadena. See you there!
