For the Love of Chocolate Scholarship Foundation invites you to indulge in roaring Twenties elegance
The face of pastry is changing in Chicago and all across the United States, thanks in large part to The French Pastry School at City Colleges of Chicago. Founded by Chefs Jacquy Pfeiffer and Sébastien Canonne, M.O.F., The French Pastry School is training the pastry artisans of today and tomorrow, sharing with them the recipes and techniques that have made its Chef Instructors some of the best pastry professionals in the world.
Students of The French Pastry School come from across the nation and many parts of the world, and a wide variety of backgrounds. What they share is a passion for pastry. Thanks to the continuing sponsorships and donors to For the Love of Chocolate Foundation, many students, who otherwise would not be able to afford the top education in pastry, are able to apply for scholarships and obtain the training that will enable them to achieve their dreams in a new or continuing career.

Each year, the foundation holds an annual fundraiser to help supply future scholarships. Coming up on February 22, 2014, The French Pastry School will once again host the unique and exciting event, For the Love of Chocolate where guests can experience new themes, innovative entertainment, and delectable bites from the best in Chicago. This year theme will be a decadent night of 1920s glamour that will celebrate The Great Gâteau: live music, ritzy entertainment, dancing, a cake parade, speakeasy salons, and a moveable feast from dozens of Chicago’s favorite chefs. www.frenchpastryschool.com
