Susana and Isabel have prepared a special chocolate pairing with Slow Food Miami to benefit their Edible School Gardens project. Connect with them on October 20th at 7:30pm on @slowfoodmiami Instagram live where we’ll do the tasting together, and the sisters will share the inspiration behind each unique pairing and stories from their adventures in chocolate. For just $38 you can get a thoughtfully put together tasting kit by chocolatiers Susana and Isabel. They wanted to create a chocolate experience that was unusual, sophisticated and, of course, delicious. They have used chocolate made with Venezuelan and Latin American cacaos for the pairings, as well as unique ingredients that celebrate the versatility of chocolate. The tasting box is intended for 2 people or just for 1 person looking for an extra indulgent experience! Pre-order the tasting kit here and pick up in store from Thursday, October 15th or have it shipped.

Dolphin Mall will post the pictures on their website and social media for followers to vote for the best Miami-Dade Halloween yard decor. All entries will have to be submitted by October 25. Three contestants will be selected. On October 30, 2020, the winners will be announced on the mall website and on social media. The following is a list of the prize(s) to be awarded to the three winners:

Third Prize Winner: One Visa Gift Card for $750.00

Be sure to follow Dolphin Mall on Instagram, @dolphinmall for their 13 Days of Spooky Giveaway.
