World-renowned chefs will donate their time and talents for charity at the chocolate festival and pastry show called Indulge LA on Saturday, December 29. 

Sweet lovers of all ages are invited to come and indulge their senses through interactive chocolate and pastry demonstrations by celebrity chefs. Older guests will also have the opportunity to taste some of the world’s top champagnes, wines and spirits. 

All proceeds from the event will be donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, a facility that provides free medical care to children suffering from cancer and other life-threatening diseases. 

A number of chocolatiers, pastry chefs and confectioners will “build the most delectable edibles from the ground up,” in over four hours of live demonstrations. 

Some of the many chefs scheduled to be there include the premiere authority on all things chocolate, Jean-Marie Auboine. Additionally, world champion pastry chef, Federico Fernandez, will utilize his 20 years of culinary experience to present audience members with unique deserts. Annette Starbuck, founder of the Food Network, and featured cupcake shop Goodie Girls will also partake in demonstrations.

FOX 11’s news anchor, Christine Devine, will be the master of ceremonies at this year’s chocolate festival, which will be held at the Olympic Center Banquet and Conference Center in Los Angeles. 

All-inclusive tickets are going fast so chocolate lovers should act soon if they want to enjoy a taste of decadent sweets at Indulge LA. For more information, visit http://www.indulgela.net/.
