About the Event

When chocolate was first brought to England in the 1600s, it was considered a taboo substance, enjoyed only by the risque and elite in private salons.
Some of our finest literature was also once considered too provocative for public consumption and was heard in similar salon environments by only the boldest of ears. We recreate these intimate environs, combining mouthwatering chocolate treats with tales of the secret, banned and scandalous from authors such as Lord Byron, John Donn, Angela Carter and Joanne Harris.
Performed, read and sung to you by guest artists from around San Francisco, the Salon du Chocolat invites you to succumb to a literary seduction!
