Valentine’s Day in Savannah: Chocolate by Adam Turoni

February 3, 2014 by Teresa Jacobson

Valentines Day in Savannah

Hearts on Display

 

Whomever decided to pair chocolate and Valentine’s Day together is a genius because ( 1) It’s another excuse to eat chocolate and (2) refer back to number one, and (3) they’ve been best friends ever since. Since then chocolate has made a significant impression on everyone; your mom or dad, your girlfriend or boyfriend, spouse, grandparents, coworkers, and just about everyone else in-between!

Chocolate is the gift that keeps on giving and we know the MASTER of the craft, Adam Turoni! With his help you can find a chocolate that can fit just about ANYONE. Allow us to show you some several delicious examples:

Savannah Chocolates - Red Velvet Truffles. Mmmm.

Red Velvet Truffles. Mmmm.

 

Red Velvet Truffles: light, decadent, just down right precious! Look at the pink casing and the white piping-  this is definitely the kind of chocolate to dazzle a certain someone. Heck, you could give these to your best friend and still make their Valentine’s Day in Savannah! And besides, who can say no to red velvet?

 

Savannah Chocolates - Hazelnut creme with dark chocolate crisps

Hazelnut creme with dark chocolate crisps and beautifully printed music notes? Adam’s Chocolates never cease to amaze us!

 

See! There’s even chocolate for the musician in your life! We try not to question the chocolate voodoo going on in Adam’s little shop of wonders but you can’t help but wonder how he makes them all look so gorgeous. And with dark chocolate crisps and hazelnut you can’t go wrong.

 

 

 

Savannah Chocolates - Riesling and Rose Water Truffles

Riesling and Rose Water truffles. Simple, sophisticated, and of course- stunning.

 

Perhaps you have that friend or loved one with a much more delicate palate. Maybe you had trouble picking between a bottle of wine and some artisan chocolates? Problem solved! Adam’s Rose Water and Riesling Wine Truffles can impress even the most eclectic of foodies. Light, subtle, and fragrant this truffle will leave them wanting more.

 

Savannah Chocolates - Screw Love truffles

Screw Love! Have Chocolate!

 

Heck, there’s even a chocolate for the recently single ( or perhaps fiercely independent woman who doesn’t need a man or vice versa) in your life! Hard to be bitter when the Screw Love truffles are so clever and delicious! 72% dark chocolate is something we can all go a little batty for this Valentine’s Day in Savannah.

 

 

Valentine’s Day isn’t just for lovers- it’s meant to celebrate love of all kinds! Tell the people in your life that you care by picking out the chocolate that’s unique as they are. We promise- Adam doesn’t disappoint. Find his shop right on Broughton Street near MLK Boulevard. Go to Adam’s Facebook page and be swept away by a master of the craft. And of course,  we can’t wait to hear about your Valentine’s Day in Savannah.

Savannah’s Jingle Bell Square

December 23, 2013 by Teresa Jacobson

It’s getting closer to Christmas and we just can’t wait to share the inn with everyone! And of course, what is the Christmas spirit without any music?  Did you know that Savannah has her Jingle Bell Square? That’s right! Jingle Bells was written right here in Savannah’s Troup Square!

 The Musician

James L. Pierpont was a talented Music Director of the Unitarian Church overlooking Troup Square and also served as a Confederate cavalry regiment. Of the many lyrics and compositions he wrote, Jingle Bells was the one that really took Savannah’s people and the world by storm for its catchy tune!

The Music of Savannah’s Jingle Bell Square

He wrote the composition and lyrics to Jingle Bells in 1853 under the title ‘One Horse Open Sleigh’. His initial inspiration for the song was drawn from the bells attached to the harnesses of horses whose purpose was to alert other carriages of your presence when you were coming to a blind intersection.

The bells were especially important when it snowed seeing as how you can’t hear the sleighs! Imagine if they didn’t think of having them? YIKES.

 Jingle Bells Today!

When it was reprinted in 1859 it was given the name ‘Jingle Bells.’ Since it’s become public domain the song has become a Christmas classic having been covered by scores of musicians all over the world! So come down to Troup Square on the corner of Habersham and Harris street in the Historic District! And from all of us at the Azalea Inn & Gardens: Have a Merry Christmas, a Happy Holiday, and a wonderful New Year!
