Are you a chocoholic? Or looking for some chocolatey goodness to give as a traditional Valentine gift? Then you need to go to the Chocolate Salon at the Embassy Suites next Sunday (1/30). 

Come and taste a bunch of chocolate, buy some as well, and listen to a couple of speakers. Here are some highlights:

Some of the participating chocolatiers, confectioners and wineries include Amano Artisan Chocolate, Cowboy Toffee Company, CACOCO, Fera'wyn's Artisan Chocolates, Endorfin Foods, 3D Candies, Degroot Desserts, Sweet Milalani, Farm Fresh To You, Be a gourmet, New Orleans Bill, H-G Vineyards, Serralles USAH-G Vineyards, Cuisine Noir Magazine, and more.

Meet Art Pollard of Amano, recently ranked by the New York Times as the #1 Bean-to-Bar ChocolateMaker in the United States.

What I'm more interested in, and think some of you will also be, is this discussion: 
Jen Cooper of Ben and Max Snacks will be doing a talk about her experience of starting and running a small snack business using new California' Cottage Food Bill.

If you've been making some sort of tasty treat in your kitchen and selling it to friends and relatives all this time, then here's a chance to learn how to upscale it into a full fledged business.
