We want to thank our partners and visitors to Chocolate Weekend NYC for making it a great success. With more than 36 participating locations over the weekend, hundreds of chocolate fans were visiting chocolate boutiques, from old favorites to creative newcomers. People all around the city were spotted in the street carrying their Passports as the treasure hunt for stamps got them to discover, taste, and buy treats for three days on October 14, 15, 16.
With the help of great weekend weather, Savorique also led two chocolate tours through the Flatiron and SoHo neighborhoods (pictures here). The groups were led from Gnosis chocolate to Chocolat Moderne and L.A. Burdick on Saturday, with a discussion around vegan chocolate and the visit of a Chelsea chocolate factory before settling down with a satisfying cup of hot chocolate. On Sunday, the group started at a downtown chocolate/coffee/wine bar before visiting the kitchen of Roni-Sue in the Essex Market. After a walk to Bond St. Chocolate, we passed by Vosges in SoHo and visited newly opened and very creative Xocolatti.
Chocolatiers all over the city will open their doors for NYC’s first CHOCOLATE WEEKEND from Friday October 14-Sunday October 16. Chocolate producers and retailers including Michel Cluizel, The Chocolate Room, Bond St. Chocolate, L’Atelier du Chocolat and FIKA will offer activities, tastings, demonstrations, tours, workshops etc for chocolate aficionados of all ages. If you’re a serious chocoholic, this is your weekend to enjoy free activities and discounts on your favorite treat!
New York is a gourmet town and New Yorkers are passionate about their chocolate. People today want to know where their food comes from, and chocolate is no exception. Consumers are more aware of independent producers, savvy about sourcing, and interested in local production.
With more chocolate brands popping up around the city, CHOCOLATE WEEKEND NYC is a fun way to discover and enjoy the chocolate scene, from a factory tour in Brooklyn to hearing the secrets from a chef in Gramercy. What could be better than strolling around the city on a crisp fall day sampling hot chocolate? Get more information and print your itinerary at CHOCOLATEWEEKENDNYC.com.
Robert and Neill (aka Professor Chocolate) are the two talented writers behind The Ultimate Guide to Finding Chocolate in NYC (available at Barnes & Noble and Amazon). It is the most detailed book about enjoying chocolate in New York City, taking 5 years of research, countless hours on foot, and hundreds of hands-on sampling. We knew we just had to meet.
Last Saturday, we arranged a brunch at Almond in Flatiron, a restaurant committed to farm-to-table fare, which was right in line with our appetite for locally-grown organic cravings. Great spot to discuss food, nutrition, and chocolate, and Professor Chocolate, just like Savorique, is passionate about all three. Neil and Rob are extremely knowledgeable about the chocolate industry in New York City, the US, and around the world.
In the next few weeks and months you will learn more about Professor Chocolate, as Robert and Neill will share with us on the Savorique blog their continued finding about chocolate in NYC and beyond.
