Marco Paolo appears in the February 12th 2012 issue of the Image Section of the LA Times! The article reads in part, “…Tray passed fine chocolates are always a hit said Richard Lauter, chef and co-owner of Savore Cuisine and Events in Beverly Hills, who once created a conversation-stirring chocolate truffle display on a naked woman’s body. “A simple rustic truffle is perfect on its own” he said, “but today’s truffle comes in incredibly complex flavors, such as Marco Paolo Chocolates’ Tamarind Tea with Green Cardamom; Pomegranate with Aged Balsamic, and Mango Red Chili Gelée and Dark Lime – just to name a few.”
Marco Paolo Chocolates is proud to have been selected by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (ATAS), host of the annual Emmy® Award telecast, for inclusion in their exclusive gift bag this week. The artisan chocolates were distributed at the 12th Annual Celebrity Golf Classic Event, an assembly of Hollywood producers, talent, and executives supporting ATAS’s charitable educational outreach Foundation that is held annually in conjunction with the telecast.
“When Academy staff sampled Marco Paolo Chocolates we knew there was something special, distinctive and exclusive about them, “commented Ava Surrena, Corporate Relations for ATAS, adding, “We had to have them, were excited to share them with attendees, and heard they were a big hit.”
