Distinguished Artist Awards

We had the honour of celebrating Alberta's artists at the Lieutenant Governor of Alberta's Distinguished Artist Awards, "Rooted in the Arts", on Saturday, June 15th. It was a true celebration of our Alberta artists from sculptors to singers, from painters to puppeteers! This year's winners are The Old Trout Puppet Workshop and author Aritha van Herk, AOE. Big congratulations to both of this year's recipients! We are often asked to sponsor chocolate for community events like these, but for this event we also participated as fellow artists! Our Maître Chocolatier Derrick Tu Tan Pho, designed an artful collection of 8 beautiful chocolate stilettos for us to display at the gala's dessert reception. Though these shoes were made exclusively for visual appreciation only, we do offer a line of edible chocolate stilettos for sale at our store. Choose from either polka-dots, leopard print or sassy red chocolate stilettos filled with 11 of our newest chocolates: 3 Dark Seal Salt Caramels, 4 Mango Peppercorn and 4 Apricot Lavender. We sampled all of these chocolates at the gala along with our Rosemary Fusion. Can you guess which chocolates were the crowd favourite? I felt like an artist myself creating the displays for this event! Check out pics of our beautiful chocolate tables below...
