Whole Foods Market Chocolate Fest – Weymouth, MA – Sweet Decadence
February 8, 2014
Early February is when hearts begin to imagine all the fantastic possibilities that come with Valentine’s Day. For young and old, the day is a blank slate bringing with it the promise of romance, excitement, love and yes, food. And the food that most engenders romance is chocolate. Sweet, decadent chocolate.
Whole Foods Market in South Weymouth, MA seized on that reality this year by hosting an event focused solely on chocolate and dishes of all kinds created using chocolate. Their Chocolate Fest – smartly scheduled on the Saturday BEFORE Valentines Day – was to my gourmand’s eye and palate a grand success.
They asked me to stop by and indulge with them, and I did. From cocoa-dusted bay scallops to peanut butter cups to chocolate covered bacon and strawberries, Whole Foods had it all covered. In fact, I was unable to find a dish I wouldn’t gorge myself on if left alone with unlimited toothpicks and little paper sample cups.
But enough of me using words as descriptors to this Willy Wonka-esque event, here are some photos of the items I gobbled up.
Here’s hoping they call me for their next food event. And if you have a restaurant or a shop and would like to have me sample your menu, leave a comment here on the blog. Thanks!
