Hosted by Gourmet Boutique

It was Boston (well Lower Mills section of Dorchester) that gave rise to America’s first chocolate enterprise more than 200 years ago. With a seasoned chocolate sommelier as your guide, we invite you on this sweet and indulgent virtual tasting adventure. Infused with a bit of food history, trivia, and highly engaging tasting activities you and your guests will leave this tasting with both a lot of chocolate-induced laughs and smiles and a bit of food knowledge to showcase at your next social gathering. Featuring four locally sourced beans to bar makers the package allows a wide lens of the current chocolate world with a nod both to its rich history and an even richer present/future. What president had a side hustle selling chocolate? Join us for this fun and engaging hour to find out more.
