We're not going to make generalizations about mothers; many like breakfast in bed on Mother's Day, while some are up at 6AM and out the door for a run. Still other moms are up cleaning and making pancakes for their brood, and we salute them. But there's likely one thing all moms share, and the limb that we're about to go out on is made of milk chocolate.
Moms, like the rest of humanity, pretty much, like the sweet stuff. Love it. And why not get 'em what they like? Yes, show up with flowers, send a card, and then drive your mother directly to Beverly Hills on Sunday, May 10 -- aka Mother's Day -- for a cocoa-licious day at Madame Chocolat. A chocolate demo is the highlight of the day -- we adore a demo of anything, but certainly when there is candy involved -- as well as interesting beverages and bites and other sybaritic pleasures.
Oh. And the invite promises a chocolate tasting. Milk, white, dark, speckled with salt, creamy, covered with herbs or what have you -- yes. Yes to all tastings. Sunday, May 10. 212 N. Canon, Beverly Hills (advance tickets required)
