The hit of last year’s Christmas Walk were the hand-made chocolates of Ka-ka-o paired with our rich reds, Chambourcin and Norton, and the sweet Cave Rock Red. This offering of carefully made artisan chocolates got rave reviews.
While Ka-ka-o Chocolates were not available to us throughout the summer months they are back for the Holidays, and we’ll feature them at our Christmas Walk, Saturday, December 5, 2009. Brian Pelletier of Ka-ka-o will be there to serve up some of his scrumptious choclate creations.
We are offering a selection of bars, barks, pates de fruit and dragees. The ultimate snack food, dragees are chocolate-coated caramelized almonds. Wait until you taste the chocolate bars with ginger! Brian uses a unique chocolate process in his kitchen in St. Louis. Especially tasty is a pairing of the chocolate bark with coffee. Try it with our new Italian-style sweet red wine, Rosso Dolce’. It’s a great pairing.
