We’re doing it again! David Jackman and I are hosting another festival at Chocolate Restaurant in Santa Cruz, CA on Thursday, September 26th, this time, featuring a menu that showcases both Chocolate and Vanilla!!
The event begins with craft cocktails at 6:00 pm. There are two Festival Specials made with an artisan rum infused with Rain’s Choice Vanilla Beans: Vanilla Chocolate Mint Mojito, and Vanilla Rum Soda. A third Festival special is a Chocolate Vanilla Martini. Additional cocktail options include a Cherry-Vanilla Manhattan and a Nilla Killa!
Our 2019 Dinner Menu
Dinner Service Begins at 7:00 pm.
There will be a pause between the entree and dessert. Elias Ehrheart of Mutari Chocolate and I will visit each table to offer samples of four single-origin chocolates as well as taste samplers of Rain’s Choice Vanilla Extract in Cream Sodas. Gina Tassone, the “Contessa” will be selling some of our products, including our Ecuadoran Nacional Chocolate and Premium Saffron as well as our Extracts, Natural Extracts and Vanilla Sugars. This is an excellent opportunity to purchase holiday gifts for the cooks and bakers in your lives.
