Chocolate is revered in the city of Los Angeles for its good taste, ease of cooking with, and matchless reputation in gifts, desserts, and other sweets. Celebrate with this city by the beach in their annual festival, entitled Indulge Los Angeles. Appropriately titled, this festival is full of pastries, cakes, and other tasty treats all with a common ingredient of chocolate. The unique thing about this festival though is it is also chocked-full of world class chocolatiers and other chefs waiting to offer you their best creations yet. Some celebrity guests and chefs include Alicia Boada, Sarah Lady Chocolatier, Annette Starbuck from the Food Networks Cupcake Wars, and Carmit Bachar from the Pussycat Dolls.
On top of tasting chocolate, goers will also learn to pair the best wine, champagne, and other spirits with this tasty delight. So join your fellow Los Angeles residents and festival master Fox 11 news anchor Christine Devine in indulging yourself in treats, all while raising money for St. Judes Children’s Hospital.
