Three-time James Beard Award winner and longtime WNYC afternoon host Leonard Lopate makes audiences salivate – and taste new things – with Lopate & Locavores, the popular live event series back for a seventh year of spotlighting New York City’s local food scene.
Join us tonight for a conversation with chocolatier and New York City treasure Jacques Torres. Fondly referred to as Mr. Chocolate, Torres is the authority on all things related to this confectionary delight. Leonard sits down with him to talk about his artisanal chocolate empire and how he makes his confections so unique.
**Please Note: Due to an unforeseen conflict, this even has been cancelled and will be rescheduled. We apologize for any inconvenience.
About Lopate & Locavores
Now in its seventh year, Leonard Lopate’s popular food series spotlights New York City’s local food scene. This year, Leonard delves into the luscious world of chocolate with a top local chocolatier, asks famous international chefs what brought them here and how they’ve adapted to NYC in the process, and in a time where everyone is snapping pictures on their iPhones at dinner, talks with a panel of food stylists about the magical art of making a simple vegetable on a plate look ravishing.
