BIMA hosts cocoa/coffee trunk show

Chocolate and caffeine are calling your name.

Dolcetta Artisan Sweets and Grounds for Change Coffee have joined together to offer samplings and an array of specialty products for their first Trunk Show at Bainbridge Island Museum of Art, noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 7.

A former pastry chef at Quinn’s, Rover’s and Campagne, Andrea Terrenzio is the chief confectionista at Dolcetta Artisan Sweets. She uses the best ingredients she can find to create exquisite, small-batch bonbons, caramels, truffles and chocolates. Dolcetta’s intriguing and surprising flavor combinations — try the dark and candied orange bar or maple-pepper caramels — are renowned internationally, having won several prestigious chocolatier awards.

Grounds for Change will feature its Fair Trade Certified high-grade specialty coffee. The Poulsbo-based roastery works in small batches for freshness and to produce quality flavors ranging from floral and fruity to chocolaty and full bodied.

Both companies promote sustainability and supporting their local communities by giving back a portion of their proceeds.
