A Chocolate Reception @ Chocolate Arts

Last night we were invited to attend “A Chocolate Reception” at Chocolate Arts — a gathering of foodies to help celebrate the brand’s 20th Anniversary, as well as their newly expanded location on West 3rd avenue.

We had only been to Choc Arts briefly once before, during the Kitsilano Tasting Plates event. We were excited to see what was in store for the evening — and it would clearly be nothing short of chocolate paradise.

Check out that spread. We’ll take one of everything, please.

Kalamansi wrapped in white chocolate, above, was pure heaven. Probably the nicest piece of white chocolate we’ve ever tasted.

This little guy tasted like an apple pie exploding in your mouth. Bam.

Freshly baked chocolate chip cookies, dusted with Maldon salt.

This little Meyer Lemon chocolate square from Greg Hook was amazing. He also created the raspberry number, below.

Philippe Vancayseele, technical director of Cacao Barry, was on hand during the evening to chat with guests. This is gianduja chocolate, covered in melted milk chocolate and sprinkled with coffee — super rich, and not for the faint of heart!

These little  Chocolate Pots de Crème had everyone gushing.

… Jeremy included!

Adrian probably ate about 6 of these mini-pizzas. They were really yummy and covered with cheese… plus, a nice break from all the chocolate.

Here’s Jeremy checking out the cheese plate.

With Valentine’s just around the corner, you can’t really go wrong with a little something  special from Chocolate Arts. The store is filled with goodies that will have you ooh-ing and ahh-ing, and you’ll be sure to find something that special someone (or you) will love.

Chocolate Arts are holding an Open House tomorrow (Saturday, February 2nd) to celebrate their 20th Anniversary. You can expect lots of samples, discounts, and kids will get to make chocolate lollipops. Don’t miss it!

Thanks to the gang at Chocolate Arts for such a wonderful evening. We can’t wait to come back again soon.
