Celebrate Valentine's Day With Me — And Chocolate!

Whether you love or hate Valentine’s Day, there’s no denying that it’s a super chocolatey holiday — which makes it top notch in my book. This year I’m writing a series of chocolate stories for Chowhound and hosting about a billion chocolate tastings in NYC.

The ones I might be most excited about? Fresh has asked me to help them put on three luxury chocolate tastings at their New York stores: Think champagne to start, followed by a guided tasting of five chocolates in an intimate setting (6-12 people, tops). The best part? IT’S BASICALLY FREE. Fresh is asking people to RSVP and reserve their spot by buying a $25 gift card, which I’m positive you’ll then use at the tasting to buy a mini mask, sugar treatment, or something else delectable.

Here’s the info; hope to see you there. It’s going to be delicious!
