11/12/2013
Case Study Image

If you’re a chocolate fiend, you’ve probably heard of the Mast Brothers. The Iowa native brothers with a Williamsburg shop were pioneers in the “bean-to-bar” movement, and their ultra-rich chocolates use only cacao beans and cane sugar with no additives. Their first cookbook has just been released, and this Friday, November 15, Art in the Age will host them for a cocktail- and sweets-filled book signing.

The brothers will be at the spirit company’s Old City store at 116 North Third Street from 6-8 PM, and everyone is invited to stop by to meet the modern Wonkamen while enjoying food and drink. Look for chocolate pastries from High Street on Market and boozy hot chocolate topped with Spodee marshmallows by Zynnie Bakes. Mast Brothers Chocolate: A Family Cookbook will be available for purchase, and there will also be giveaways for treat-loaded gift baskets.
