Chocolate and Wine Pairing at LUSH

February 6, 2009 at 11:58 am (Current Events, Our Favorite Things, Special Events, What we are eating, What we're drinking) (, , )

Join LUSH for an in-store wine and chocolate pairing seminar and tasting for Valentine’s Day.  We have invited Ms. Katherine Anne to be our chocolate expert.

LUSH on Halsted, 1257 South Halsted: Saturday, February 14th,  4-6pm

LUSH on Roscoe, 2232 West Roscoe: Sunday, February 15th, 2-4pm


We partnered with Katherine Anne, a boutique truffler, to create 5 unique, handcrafted truffles to pair with LUSH wine, beer, spirit, and liqueur selections. We offer the truffles in 3 and 7 piece boxes at both Lush locations.  The featured truffles are Dark Chocolate Honeyed Currant, Dark Chocolate Cayenne Cinnamon, White Chocolate Biscotti, Dark Chocolate Raspberry, and Dark Chocolate Maple Walnut. Feel free to ask for recommendations on what wine pairs best with what truffle.

LUSH hearts you!
The chocolate hearts have gone to our head!  Although we would prefer to avoid the insipid commercial aspect of this Hallmark Holiday, it does give us another excuse to get our drink on…particularly with dark chocolate.  Swing on by LUSH to add to your stash of Valentine’s Day celebration supplies…wine, spirits, brews, and chocolatey fun…you’ll have to figure out the rest.  Pull up to the fireside and indulge in deliciously dark chocolate.  And you know what pairs well with dark chocolate…wine, beer, and a seriously hot date, and maybe a fire place, and another glass.  Okay, perfect!  So, practice your wine pairing prowess at LUSH!  We are celebrating the lovie dovey day with a sweet selection of delicious delectables and delights.  Love!  Toast!  And be merry!

    Hi, we live in the neighborhood and this sounds perfect before dinner!

    ..We got our puppy a year ago this week, does LUSH mind if he comes with us to celebrate? (he’s tiny and well behaved)

    I forgot to mention I was talking about the S. Halsted location.
