Callebaut & Houston Food Finder Present the First-Ever Chocolate Heroes Month!
World-renowned chocolate company Callebaut and online publication Houston Food Finder are partnering on a month-long event series to promote Houston businesses and the Chocolate Heroes that fuel them with their craftsmanship and passion.
The Houston Chocolate Heroes event series marks the very first time that Callebaut has coordinated this type of showcase in any city. From January 7 through February 10, a Houston bakery, chocolatier or ice cream shop is creating a special dessert using Callebaut milk, dark or white chocolates — or a combination! The special desserts are available throughout the month and are featured during one special Saturday or Sunday event as well. These local professionals choose Callebaut chocolates for the outstanding quality, smoothness and consistency. On their featured event day, most chefs are offering specials. Watch for more information on those in our upcoming focus articles on each individual chef.
“We are lucky to have many wonderful customers all over the United States. However, Houston, not only has a great food scene, but it was the city that helped us kick-off the Beanology Bus Tour in 2015, which was a blast!” says Miriam Madrigal, Callebaut Marketing Manager. “So, we thought it would be great to come back to Houston and partner with local chefs as we launch our next big project: CHOCOLATE HEROES.”
The event series also highlights Chocolate Heroes, the first online global chocolate community that unites chocolate lovers and artisans worldwide. The community offers an insightful overview of what the world of chocolate has to offer by country, city or even neighborhood.
