- Chocolate Tasting
October 12, 2017
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Channel your inner Willy Wonka at this flavour-filled evening of chocolate experimentation! Take some time out to truly taste at this special event blending fun and focus.
With hundreds of flavour compounds (even more than wine), good quality dark chocolate is delicious to taste on its own, but also an ideal food to pair with other ingredients. It’s also a fantastic route to learn about some principles of more mindful and conscious eating.
The agenda for the evening:
– Learn to taste chocolate like the professionals, mindfully and using all the senses; we’ll try a few cocoa percentages from a selection of origins so that you can truly taste the difference
– Some background on the fascinating history of chocolate and how it’s made
– Experiment with sometimes surprising, but always tasty flavour combinations. Want to try chocolate and chilli, or chocolate and black olive? Go for it!
– To bring the reflective tasting to a close, we’ll finish with a few minutes of meditation
The chocolate we’ll taste is from beautiful British bean-to-bar brand, Pump St Chocolate, plus some surprise chocolate tastes thrown in. The ticket price includes chocolate to taste on the evening, tasting notes, a drink and a Food At Heart taster chocolate bar.
Come along to taste some great chocolate, meet fellow chocolate lovers and explore just how creative you can get with your flavours.
