We’ve written about Katherine Anne’s Chocolate before, not just because her freshly-made chocolates, caramels, and marshmallows are inspired deliciousness, but because she embodies the small business entrepreneurship that this big town needs.
Catherine hosts what I like to call “chocolate release parties” and welcomes people to her shop to create confections with her. You really get the idea very quickly that she loves what she does and that she is passionate about sharing what she does with other people. And since what she loves is chocolate, it’s not very hard for others to love it, too.
Whatever you’re doing over the next week, consider participating in one of these activities with Katherine Anne:
- SATURDAY 2/9, 12-6PM: handmade cards from a local artist will be for sale: a calligrapher will be writing complimentary love notes.
- SUNDAY 2/10, 12-3PM: Illinois Sparkling will be pouring their delightful bubbly for you to sip while you hang with us.
- WEDNESDAY 2/13, 6:30-9PM: Valentine’s truffle-making party! You know the drill on how awesome these are. We’re providing extra champagne for this one
- THURSDAY 2/14, all day! We’ll be pouring even MORE bubbly (we have a problem, we know) and adorning all boxes with a pretty floral sprig.
