Consider this a heads-up to you chocoholics in rehab to avoid Foster & Dobbs on Tuesday, Feb. 13. They're having a class that evening with master chocolatier David Briggs, the guy responsible for Xocolatl and wacky combinations like Bacon Caramel, Fleur de Sel and Szechuan Peppercorn Ganache, as well as Milk Chocolate with Earl Grey Tea, among others.
David will be discussing how he comes up with his (evil) flavor combinations, his methods and materials and more. And he'll be taking participants on a guided tasting tour from the raw materials to the finished confections. So stay home, put on your jammies and repeat your twelve-step pledge...it's not going to be a night to venture out!
Details: Xocolatl with David Briggs at Foster & Dobbs. 7:15 p.m., Feb. 13; $15, reservations only. Foster & Dobbs, 2518 NE 15th Ave. Phone 503-284-1157 for reservations.
