Chocolate Heaven is Here!

If you're a chocolate lover, you'll want to head downtown Chicago for a fabulous event: For the Love of Chocolate. It happens this Saturday, February 10.

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, The French Pastry School at City Colleges of Chicago is proud to present the second annual For the Love of Chocolate benefit. Top chefs from around the country will join together to transform the celebrated South Shore Cultural Center into a decadent chocolate wonderland that could rival even Willy Wonka's factory—all to help inner city high school students achieve their dreams of becoming the "superchefs" of tomorrow. Intricate chocolate clothing, dazzling chocolate body art, amazing chocolate sculptures and a sensual and luxurious "Cocoa Sutra" room will be on display during the extravaganza. For the Love of Chocolate will benefit Careers through Culinary Arts Program (C-CAP), a national nonprofit which prepares at-risk public high school students for college and careers in the hospitality industry. Managing the largest independent culinary scholarship program in the United States, C-CAP has awarded 1,850 scholarships, valued at over $17.8 million, changing the way many underserved high school students see their future and making a difference between a job and a career for more than 100,000 students. All the proceeds raised from the event will enable C-CAP to continue offering scholarships and programs.

The list of top chefs, pastry chefs, confectioneries is mind boggling! You won't be disappointed...I guarantee it!
