We’re relaunching our popular FareStart Mirepoix Caramel Collection starting September 9th! We were so inspired by the FareStart culinary job training program that we invited students and chef instructors to our confection kitchen to collaborate with Theo chocolatiers. The result is our Mirepoix Caramel Collection, available through November online, in our retail store and at select grocers.
$1 from each 4-piece box of caramels will benefit FareStart’s job training program for the homeless, helping to provide students with the tools and support needed to transform their lives. With unique savory flavors like Caramelized Onion, Celery Herb, Carrot Coriander, and Bay Fennel, the Mirepoix Collection makes a perfect hostess gift or indulgent treat.
May is Bike to Work Month! Our World Bicycle Relief bar will help you and others get there on two wheels. Theo has partnered with World Bicycle Relief to create a bar that supports WBR’s mission to transform individuals and communities through the power of bicycles.
Ingredients used in the Theo + FareStart Kitchen Session
We were so busy creating savory caramels with FareStart students during our Theo+FareStart chef session (more about the project in THIS blog post!) that we didn’t get much chance to talk to students about FareStart. We wanted to hear more about their experience in the program and recently caught up with some of them.
“I feel like society had given up on me, that I had given up on myself. And here I found a group of people that believed in me and showed me that I could do better, and showed the community that I was worth it. I started off as prep cook, and now I’m baker.” Kristi, graduate.
Our new Congo 65% chocolate bars come in two flavors, Vanilla Nib and Pili Pili Chili. The chocolate of Eastern Congo is not the only remarkable crop, the whole area has great agricultural potential. We wanted to showcase that in our first chocolate from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Available exclusively at Whole Foods through the end of the year, in our factory store and online here.
