Taste how chocolate is made! Think you know where chocolate comes from? Think again. This workshop journeys through the process of chocolate making while following how the flavour this glorious food develops along the way. Like coffee, wine, and beer, the world of craft chocolate is sweeping the globe, and I want you to be a part of this delicious movement!

Enjoy at least 20 samples of cacao and dark chocolate related products, including some of the finest bean to bar chocolate made today. We will also make our own dark chocolate from scratch, that is, from the cocoa bean itself. You will get a chance to taste it as the flavour develops, and take some fresh chocolate home with you!

This unpacks the 3 major areas of flavour development: the genetics, the growers, and the chocolate makers. We will sample various types of cacao, chocolate, and related products to help us understand the process of chocolate from bean to bar! It combines both specific scientific procedures, as well as the art manifested by the craftsmen behind it.

We will also cover what you need to know when purchasing chocolate for eating or baking, including understanding ingredients, interpreting labels, pricing, trade relationships, and how you as an individual can impact the future of our chocolate!

This workshop is one of a kind, and will open your eyes to what really goes into making a chocolate bar. 

All cacao and chocolate samples will be plant based. Please contact me before attending if you have further questions.
