Chocolate Bar-B-Que Artisan Sausage Platter

If you haven't heard about our Five Course Chocolate Tasting Bar-B-Que this Saturday, you must have been living under a cocoa-nib. In case you missed it, here's the line-up:

Chile-roasted Corn on the Cobb with House-made Cocoa-nib Butter
Heirloom Tomato-Goat Cheese Brulee with White Chocolate-Balsamic Drizzle
Bar-B-Que Baked Beans with Cocoa-Glazed Bacon (veggie option)
Cocoa Nib-Smoked Pulled Pork Sammie with White Chocolate Slaw (veggie option)
Milk Chocolate S’mores with House-made Vanilla Bean Marshmallow

If you're a meat-eater, this is definitely a meal not to miss. Of special interest is the optional Artisan Sausage Platter by prepared exclusively for out event by local Knight Salumi. For $14 guests can enjoy a generous selection of three sausages in the following flavors:

Thai Basil and Ginger Chicken Sausage
Pork Mole with Red and Green Peppers
Smoked Beef Cocoa-nib

Rey, the fabulous salumi-maker, dropped off my custom order today, and I couldn't help but tear into a few and grill 'em up. Each is very hearty in portion and very different in flavor. My personal favorite is the beef, which has a very smoky flavor and substantial texture. The chicken is a close second, though, with refreshing pops of flavor from the candied ginger.

We still have a few spots left at the 11am and 1pm seatings. Tickets are $35 a person. RSVP required. Call 619.578.2984 or email today info@eclipsechocolat.com
