A day to celebrate moms, and all my favorite ones love chocolate. If yours do too, order here and send them some!
It's just not Easter without chocolate!
Washington is delicious, and Taste WA is a ton of amazing wine and fabulous food. Treat yourself!
Saturday & Sunday 1-5:30
Grandma always told me I should go to the Flower & Garden show, and Grandma was always right! Though she meant to use my degree in Landscape Architecture, not to sell chocolate. Oh, well!
This year the show will include a tasting corner and I'll be there. Come by for tastes and a box of truffles to inspire you as you enjoy the show.
Remember to treat the sweeties in your life!
Ahh, the Pike Pub, scene of many things left unsaid back in the 90's ... But I'm happy to join again in ChocoFest to benefit Puget Soundkeepers. Chocolate, beer, more chocolate, food, wine, beer, chocolate, beer- you get the idea. Advance tickets on their website.
You might not expect fancy wine and chocolate in bucolic Enumclaw, but this festival will surprise you. I had a great time last year and plan to participate again.
Looking forward to another fun trip to Portland for ChocolateFest in support of the World Forestry Center. Chocolate comes from trees, don't you know!
A fun little Saturday Market hosted by the delightful Sound & Fog in West Seattle. Meet and shop with a handful of Seattle makers and enjoy a coffee at this cozy cafe.
To start off the year spreading chocolate joy, I'll be heading over to Bainbridge Island for a trunk show with Grounds for Change and samples of their coffee and my chocolate.
While I'm not entirely sure what awards they're talking about, I do try to use my powers for good and donate a portion of every sale to Food Lifeline.
Urban Craft Uprising returns to the Seattle Center Exhibition Hall. It's a huge and fabulous curated array of handmade goods of all genres, many local. I'm excited to bring Dolcetta back for a second year.
Taste of West Seattle brigs together local deliciousness in support of West Seattle Helpline. Sweetness counts, so I'll be there with truffles.
South Lake Union Saturday Market opens May 14. 10-3 on 9th Ave between Denny & John.
Come for brunch!
In the parking lot of Bellevue Presbyterian Church.
It's the big one! The northwest Chocolate Festival returns to Bell Harbor Conference Center on October 3 & 4. Chocolate and chocolatiers from around the world with all the samples you can handle, seminars, demos, and more. So! Much! Chocolate!
Another Saturday in Des Moines, come on down!
The Seattle Made launch party will feature samples from 40 different local producers of tasty treats and adult beverages. Visit www.eventbrite.com/e/taste-of-seattle-made to buy tickets.
I'll be joining the Des Moines farmers market for a few weeks in September - Saturdays the 19th and 26th.
Your chance to try out the new Antsquare app and buy from a variety of local vendors. In downtown Seattle at Westlake mall.
The original Bellevue Farmers Market, in the parking lot of the Presbyterian Church.
Every Thursday mid-May through mid-October.
Due to construction in South Lake Union, TASM will close a few weeks earlier than originally planned, with Saturday September 12 being the final day. Thanks to everyone who came out to support this new market, I hope to see you there again next year! In the meantime, stop by Kakao Chocolate and Coffee at 415 Westlake for your chocolate treats while in that neighborhood.
Find Dolcetta at Urban Craft Uprising's Summer show June 27 & 28 at Seattle Center Exhibition Hall.
Raise your hand if you love West Seattle! My grandparents bought a house here 75 years ago that I've been lucky to live in for the past 5 years. Their legacy is a large part of what has made Dolcetta Artisan Sweets possible. In fact, the rosemary in my rosemary caramel bars comes from the bush in the front yard that has been here longer than I remember! It will be fun to be at a festival in my very own neighborhood - and I won't have to worry about forgetting anything when I can walk home to get it :)
Sweetness counts! I'm excited to join Taste of West Seattle for the first time this year to help raise money for West Seattle Helpline.
Mothers' Day 2015 is May 10. I bet your mom would love a box of salty caramel truffles or bonbons!
I just found out about this event and hope to participate. The festival happens all weekend in the Woodinville wine and farming region. Saturday will feature a collective pop-up shop. More details to come!
The Bonebat Comedy of Horrors Film Festival returns, and I am happy to sponsor it with Dolcetta goodies for the swag bags. Why this? Well you know what they say, it's who you know... Gordon is a good friend from back in college days at UC Davis. If he's going to show people hours and hours of hilariously scary movies, the least I could do is give the audience something sweet to calm their senses!
Wine and chocolate at Tacoma's LeMay classic car museum. Friday and Saturday 4-9pm.
