Chicago's Sulpice Chocolat at the 2011 Grammy Awards
Chicago's Grammy Approved Sweets
The Grammy Awards are this Sunday in LA, and one Chicago company is going along for the rockin' ride. Sulpice Chocolat, an artisan chocolate house based in the Windy City and named for the first master chocolatier appointed by the Royal Court of France, flies relatively below the radar in the local cocoa scene, but this weekend, music royalty including Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, and Eminem will receive Sulpice's individually painted gourmet chocolate bars, literally edible artworks, and limited-edition sipping chocolate in their gift bags.
Some of the Sulpice flavors Grammy stars will receive include Épicé, fiery dark chocolate with hints of cayenne, chipotle chili peppers, and Ceylon cinnamon; Chai, milk chocolate infused with cardamom, cloves, Ceylon cinnamon, vanilla, and Tellicherry black pepper; and Sulpice Sipping Chocolate, hot chocolate infused with pure 23-karat edible gold. While a trip to the Grammys might be out of reach, a Grammy-approved chocolate bar is not. Buy your own painted chocolate bars ($7.50 each) on Sulpice's website or call the chocolate stars at 630-301-2345.
