    Calling all chocolate lovers (and friends of chocolate lovers) ~ Get this book from local chocolatier Hallie Baker, proprietor of Turtle Alley: Turtle, Truffle, Bark: Simple and Indulgent Chocolates to Make at Home.

    HALLIE BAKER TURTLE ALLEY ©KIM SMITH 2015I am starting my Christmas wish list today and this book is at the top! Turtle, Truffle, Bark is available to purchase at Turtle Alley and on Amazon.

    About the Author ~ Hallie Baker started learning how to make chocolates half her life ago, and hasn’t stopped since. She opened Turtle Alley Chocolates in Gloucester, MA. in 1999, and Turtle Alley II in Salem MA. in 2002. Her chocolates have been featured in Gourmet Magazine, Saveur, Roadfood, The Boston Globe, The Splendid Table, the Food Network’s Roker on the Road, the Rachel Ray show, Tonia’s Kitchen, and more.
    Having studied painting in college, her parent’s sage advice to work in the food business kept her fed, but ultimately led her to her chocolatier-ing ways. Now playing with flavor is as much fun as painting was back in the day. This is Hallie’s first book. Fingers crossed for many more!

    Hallie’s book is the absolute perfect gift for the lover of all things chocolate on your Christmas list!
