Recently Katherine Clapner of Dude, Sweet Chocolate has been taking her wares on the road. Last week she could be found at the Bottle Shop on Greenville Avenue pairing chocolate with beer. This Friday she is pairing wines with chocolate, and then Saturday she moves on to cheese.
As many know, Clapner is about the unexpected when it comes to her chocolate and she delights in showing its versatility. Pairing chocolate with wine might be more expected, but matching chocolate with cheese and beer gives us insight to her charm.Las Colinas Beverage: Friday, November 18, 5pm to 8pm
