How it works
Participants receive four full-sized craft chocolate bars. We'll then gather via Zoom for an hour-long tasting event. We'll talk about the history of chocolate and how craft chocolate is made from bean-to-bar, and you'll learn about the theme, the makers' stories, and information about each bar. Through it all, I'll be asking the group to interject questions, thoughts, and responses to what they're learning and tasting.
Participants will gain a greater appreciation for the complexity of chocolate and expand their palates. Nothing needed on their part other than curiosity!
Each guest of the event will receive these items in a shipment to their address.
- Four (4) full-sized chocolate bars from an artisan maker (these unique combinations will change depending on seasonality)
