Shawn Askinosie is our favorite criminal-defense-lawyer-turned-chocolate-maker and a leader in the food world for his chocolate, his packaging, and his business model which includes directly sourcing cocoa beans and sharing profits with the farmers. Shawn will tell his story and guide us in a tasting of his bean-to-bar chocolates. Sign up early–this tasting always sells out!

If you are into the business bit as much as the chocolate bit, check out this event at Zingtrain! Register for both Askinosie events and get 3 Askinosie Single Origin bars as our way of sayin’ thanks!
