2020 Recipe Book
This year in celebration of the Week of Chocolate expanding to the Month of Chocolate, the Art of Chocolate Recipe books were created. The recipe books consist of chocolate dessert themed recipes submitted by local chefs and community members, and paintings of each recipe done by the Bloomington Watercolor Society members. Additionally, several of our clients and a short story about each of them are included in the book as well. This new recipe book has been wildly popular this year!
Oliver Winery sponsored the recipe books, and several of the restaurants who submitted recipes are selling the books at their restaurants! We originally ordered 250 copies of the books. We are down to around ONLY 50 copies left! If you might be interested in having an original first edition copy of the recipe book, you may want to get yours NOW! Please share this info with friends, family, and others who may be interested.
You may order books online by clicking here and pick them up in the office, or pay at the office. Books are $15.00+ donation to LIFEDesigns each. If you will need yours mailed to you, there is an additional $5.00 fee for postage.
Month of Chocolate Recipe Books will also be sold at the following locations:
- Bloomington Chocolate Company
- Cardinal Spirits
