Have you bought your ticket to The Food Section’s online chocolate tasting? It’s not too late—yet. But the registration window closes tomorrow night, so now’s the perfect time to sign up for the January 26 event.

As a reminder, the event is virtual, but the chocolate is real. Prior to the tasting, you’ll receive a box of bars from Piety and Desire in New Orleans, Family & Future in Carrboro, North Carolina, Xocolatl Small Batch Chocolate in Atlanta, and Brasstown in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

You may not have heard of those chocolatiers. That’s by design, since one of The Food Section’s goals is to connect its readers with new and meaningful culinary experiences representing the best of the American South.
