About Chocolatier Dan Rattigan
Dan opened the wildly popular French Broad Chocolates in downtown Asheville, North Carolina, in 2008. Last year, he built a nearby Chocolate Factory, the "bean-to-bar" facility uses fair trade cacao (cocoa) from Peru to create chocolate for their new line of chocolate bars as well as creations at the Lounge. Dan will talk about his craft chocolate-making: from sourcing cacao in Peru to roasting the beans via his prototype solar bean roaster to the creating the final chocolate creations that you will sample. Take a tour of the Chocolate Factory.
