Continued Education…Raw Chocolate 101

Today is the day!! Been looking forward to it for SO long–since the beginning of June to be exact! It came about in one of those serendipitous, will-never-happen again moments at a David Wolfe dinner I attended at The Black Olive here in Baltimore.
I was sitting, enjoying amazing company, and even more delicious raw food…writing down the numbers of new friends and the websites I wanted to be sure and check out. Now mind you the timing here was this: still counseling only on the side, still working my non-food related corporate job, one “raw” foray under my belt, looking forward to the next one that would be in a few weeks on the Summer solstice.
After the event, I got home and turned over the card that I had been haphazardly writing on all night, and saw this: Raw chocolate making class…
Ahhh! I immediately inquired as the delicious raw chocolate I had had at the dinner was still deliciously fresh on my tongue, and David’s enthusiasm and nearly religious convictions over the health and POWER of cacao was still in my head.
So I decided right then and there I would become a raw pastry/chocolate chef. And this class will be my first official stab at it! Who knows, maybe Living Light culinary is next!
Anyway, I’m so excited! It’s being held at Brad’s Chips in Pipersville PA, which is also pretty exciting to see their headquarters!
We’ll see what they think of my carob fig truffles…!
