Theo Chocolate’s Chef Session is a unique confection collection designed in collaboration with seven of the West Coast’s leading chefs. We invited the chefs to spend a day in our kitchen, working in tandem with our chocolatiers to create a confection that reflected each chef’s personality, using the finest ingredients available. The give and take was amazing, as each chef gave us a wish list of ingredients they wanted to see in ganache, caramel or pate de fruits, and few of the ideas overlapped. As many directions as we’ve taken chocolate, these chefs inspired countless more. Bay leaf, roasted corn, mustard oil, huckleberries, vin santo, beets, childhood treats, pine buds, sumac, smoked tea…
The seven piece Theo Chocolate Chef Session box is the result of many hours of “what ifs” and possibilities brought about by these incredibly talented individuals. We are both excited and humbled that we are able to offer something so special, and it is important to us at the same time to share that abundance.
Theo and our chef partners will donate $15 from the purchase price of each Chef Session gift box to our local food bank, Food Lifeline. An affiliate of Feeding America, Food Lifeline is a nonprofit organization dedicated to ending hunger in Western Washington. We support Food Lifeline because 93 cents from every dollar that the organization raises goes directly to feeding the hungry, and they are able to turn every donated dollar into nine dollars worth of food for the hungry. During a time of year where we gather, celebrate and feast, we would also like to encourage you to find the local Feeding America affiliate in your town to share with them your plenty this holiday season.
THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 18th from 6:30pm-8:30pm
