Edible Art at Habersham

Artisans-sidebar-chocolatierA wide variety of artisans will descend upon the Habersham Marketplace on Saturday, April 13th, and the “sweetest” by far is Adam Turoni. A chocolatier from Savannah, Adam will be set up with a mini store – a “pop-up shop” – in the Savannah Corner of Artisans and Antiques.

Adam Turoni is a graduate of the CIA (Culinary Institute of America) in New York. He interned for 6 months at Alice Water’s restaurant Chez Panisse in Berkeley, California and assisted Chef Greweling with research and recipes as he worked on his third book: “Chocolates and Confections: Formula, Theory, and Technique for the Artisan Confectioner Second Edition(2013).” Since opening a wholesale space in 2010, Chocolat by Adam Turoni, Adam has been featured on Paula Deen’s show (Food Network), on the premiere episode of “Eat it and Like It!” hosted by Jesse Blanco, as well as in many magazine & newspaper articles. Chocolat by Adam Turoni opened its first retail shop at 323 West Broughton St, Savannah, in October 2012.

Some lucky Beaufort residents are already familiar with Adam’s delicious work; he is currently selling selections from his chocolate collection at SILO in Habersham and at Lowcountry Produce, downtown.

Artisans and Antiques organizer Heidi Bruegmann says, “We are very excited to have Adam as a participant in the event. He is truly a chocolate artist!”
