Around the World Sweets Preview Party

April 29, 2015 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Katherine Duncan, founder and confectionista of Katherine Anne Confections, a locally-focused chocolatier, is excited to host a Preview Party featuring all of the upcoming flavors for the month of April. For the May treats, Katherine Anne Confections decided to be adventurous and explore some flavors not typically found in chocolates. May is always a fun time of year and the chocolatier is celebrating by launching 16 new flavors showcasing flavors from all around the world and incorporating them into the truffles, caramels and marshmallows. The confectionista is exploring the world through truffles with fun combinations like market cherries with black pepper and balsamic in a bittersweet chocolate ganash—flavors found more typically in France. Representing Thailand, the Kaffir Lime + Ginger + Tamarind truffle was created and the Orange Candied Coriander caramel will have you thinking India.

The Preview Party is a chance for attendees to preview and indulge in 16 new limited edition, un-launched truffles, caramels and marshmallows to be released in May. The treats will be available at the confiserie.
