Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

For the first event in their brief history, dallaschocolate.org hosted chocolatiers Alan McClure and Steve DeVries for a tasting and a dinner focused on American "bean to bar" chocolate production.

Teresa Gubbins, who recapped the event for Pegasus, says the visiting chocolate producers repeatedly urged folks there to think of chocolate like wine, and local pastry chef Rhonda Ruckman was on hand to spin the cacao-heavy chocolate into desserts.

You can check out plenty more shots from the chocolate feast here in our photo set from Diana Merrill Claussen.


Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
