“So interesting! Any chocolate lover needs to come to this workshop!” -D. Morgan
This event is like a wine tasting, but with chocolate…
A Light Cellar 10th Anniversary Special Edition of this event.
Not only a fun and delicious date night, you’ll learn way more about chocolate than you knew was possible.
After attending this session you will be well on your way to enlightenment… Chocolate enlightenment that is!
You’ll be feeling the bliss and a chocolate expert, sort of like a sommelier is to wine, you can impress your friends with discussing flavour notes and facts about chocolate.
In this fun and delicious class you will unite with other chocolate lovers and journey into an exploration of the chocolate industry to walk away with an enriched perspective of cacao and the spectrum of what it takes to go from bean to bar including the 6 factors that influence the quality and flavour of chocolate.
Plus you’ll discover simple guides you can use to develop your palate and appreciation of fine chocolate so you can enjoy chocolate more deeply. (Yes, it’s possible and true, there are deeper levels of chocolate enjoyment that await your discovery!)
During this experiential session, you will get all your senses involved and be tasting the entire Light Cellar medicinal mushroom chocolate line as well as several other of the world’s best chocolate bars.
And no tasting would be complete without an understanding of chocolate and how it is made because these are all big factors influencing the flavour and quality.
You will learn:
- Where chocolate comes from, revealing the mystery of how chocolate is made all the way from seed to bar
- The difference between fine flavour cacao and bulk commodity cacao - and why this matters
- How the genetics, growing, fermenting and processing of cacao all factor into quality and ultimately your experience of chocolate
- How to taste chocolate like you would wine, developing your palate to pick up on the finer nuances of flavour
- To discern the quality of chocolate and to choose chocolate that is good for you, communities and the Planet.
“Thank you for an intriguing, tasty and informative evening” - Patricia M.
