The Luisa Spagnoli store at Stanford Shopping Center collaborated with the Perugina Chocolate Company for an in-store chocolate making event. The fabulous event included a maître chocolatier creating the famous Baci hazelnut chocolates at the store. The in-store event also allowed shop goers to enjoy the chocolate making magic through the large front store windows. Prior to founding the Luisa Spagnoli fashion brand in 1928, Mrs. Spagnoli was the founder of the Perugina Chocolate Company and the inventor of the Baci confections. The two brands continue to celebrate the founder’s creativity in annual live chocolate demonstrations at the Luisa Spagnoli stores in Italy and now in the first US store as well.
