Fine Chocolate as Art

Millcreek Cacao Roasters' Dana Brewster and Mark DelVecchio presented their artisan chocolate at the 2013 Kimball Arts Festival in Park City. We wanted to show art of chocolate making to the festival goers from all over the the world. We met chocolate lovers from South America and all most every state that were thrilled to experience Millcreek Cacao Roasters fine dark chocolate. As several people said, "We never thought we would like dark chocolate, but yours tastes fantastic!"

It's the bean that makes the best chocolate.

Just as an artist must start with the right materials; canvas, paint, brush, a chocolate maker must find the perfect beans for their creation. The combination of terroir, farmer knowledge, and chocolate maker skill go into the experience of tasting an artisan bar. Our guests agreed and all of the bars sold out by the end of the three day festival.

Other food artisans at the Kimball Arts festival were Pop Art Gourmet Popcorn, Amour Spreads, Laurie's Buffalo Gourmet, Snowy Mountain Sheep Creamery, and Instant Karma. These food artists share a passion for fine food, quality and sustainability. The food artisan area is a great opportunity for festival guests to experience and learn about speciality foods while viewing a variety of arts from the western states.
