And Terri Martini, owner of Scituate’s Front Street Gourmet, will be baking her “now-infamous” chocolate chip bread pudding, “drizzled in a multitude of different types of chocolate and caramel.”
“When people think of bread pudding they think of their grandmother,” Martini said. “It definitely reads ‘made from scratch.’ ”
Also on the menu are homemade pistachio bacon chocolate bark, sea salt caramels, and chocolate-dipped strawberries (weather permitting).
Another attraction will be specially decorated large cookies in the shape of a book that will say “LOVE” on sale to support the library. In one of these cookie bags will be a gift certificate for a deluxe one-night stay at the Colonnade Hotel in Boston. In another bag will be a gift certificate to Hilliards, a South Shore confections favorite.
Local artists have created works on the themes of love and sweets. These small and “reasonably priced” paintings will be available for purchase.
Chapin emphasized that the evening is not for couples only.
“Bring your book club, bring your mom, bring your next-door neighbor — as long as you like dessert,” she said.
“Bring your sweet tooth.”
