In lieu of the annual Fall Chocolate Salon, TasteTV has come up with an online event they describe as “QVC and HSN for Artisan Holiday Chocolate!”
On November 15th, 11am – 1pm PT, they will host a livestream video shopping event featuring artisan chocolatiers, confectioners, and chocolate makers from around the U.S., including previous Salon vendors from SFBA like Kindred Cooks Caramels, Michael’s Chocolates, Raphio Chocolate, Rainy Day Chocolates, Kokak Chocolates, CocoTutti, and Z. Cioccolato.
Stock up for the holidays
The annual fall salon is usually a good occasion for holiday gift buying and stocking up on favorites. This online event looks to be the same, and they even have some early deals on the event page.
While I will miss chatting with the vendors and sampling chocolate, this livestream marketplace sounds like an interesting and safe way to buy some great chocolate in these restricted days of COVID. In addition to the limited-time offers during the event, I hear quantities might be limited too, so set your alarms for 11am PT on Nov. 15. You don’t want to miss out.
Can’t make it?
In addition to the online Holiday Salon, at the same website, TasteTV has an online shop of curated chocolates called The Chocolate Registry. They have a wide selection of quality chocolates from small businesses in SFBA and across the country, many of them award winners from previous Salons and other TasteTV competitions.
If you miss the livestream event, check out the other chocolate available on the site.
