Ritual Chocolate is the brain child of Robbie Stout, a Park City native, and Anna Davies. Their chocolate bars have quickly skyrocketed to the top of the fine chocolate world.
“Utah is a hub for chocolate lovers,” says Matt Caputo, Director of Marketing at his family’s award-winning specialty food store and internationally recognized chocolate expert. “I can say with the appropriate gravitas that Ritual Chocolate is the up-and-coming artisan American brand.”
The chocolate festival will include sweet and savory dishes that explore the essence of cacao. Tickets are $25 and an additional $10 for alcohol beverage pairings.
All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Heirloom Cacao Preservation Program which supports the protection of threatened heirloom strains of cacao in their native growing regions.
Tickets must be purchased in advance via by calling 801-531-8669 or by visiting here.
The event begins at 7:15 p.m. at Tony Caputo’s Market, 314 W. 300 S. SLC, UT 84101
