Utah’s trend-setting chefs and beverage experts craft chocolate-based creations to benefit the Heirloom Cacao Preservation Fund.

9th Annual Chocolate Festival

The 9th Annual Caputo’s Chocolate Festival featured
Pump Street Chocolate
from Suffolk, UK!

For the first time, our community of chocolate geekery joined from the comfort of their own homes via streaming video, with goodies shipped directly to participants. Pump Street’s exceptional bean to bar chocolate was showcased in both sweet and savory applications.

The culinary lineup included creations by talented chefs from:
Normal Ice Cream
Nomad Eatery

accompanied by an inspired cocktail mix from
Water Witch Bar

To top it all off, Pump Street supplied one of their delectable pastries,
the Eccles cake!

All proceeds from the Chocolate Festival are donated to the Heirloom Cacao Preservation Initiative.

Preserving Heirloom Cacao

The Heirloom Cacao Preservation Fund (HCP) is a non-profit collaboration between the Fine Chocolate Industry Association and the United States Department of Agriculture to genetically identify strains of heirloom cacao that are extraordinary and unique in flavor and quality and preserve them in the face of an agricultural system that is quickly killing them off. For more information, visit hcpcacao.org.
