One of the great charms—if you will—of Baltimore is that for how small it sometimes seems, it’s actually full of surprises. And since so many folks are finding Baltimore to be a great place to start a small business, those surprises often take the form of smart and talented entrepreneurs—and the fabulous creations they’ve brought with them. One new local treasure is Charm School Chocolates (and its chef—the perfectly charming Josh Rosen, whom you might have seen last week on the Food Network’s Sweet Genius [um, footnote: he won!]). Smartly, Ma Petite Shoe (our favorite spot for an unparalleled selection of gourmet chocolates from around the world) has jumped at the opportunity to be one of the first Baltimore retailers to offer Charm School Chocolates—and boy, are we grateful. Josh will be at Ma Petite Shoe this Friday for the store’s weekly Chocolate Happy Hour from 6pm-9pm.
