Cocoa Bean To Chocolate Tasting & Pairing

Cocoa Bean To Chocolate Tasting & Pairing


Purpose: The purpose of this TasteProjects @TheChocoLab session is to explore the world of chocolate from cocoa bean origins, their distinct characteristics and see live how craft chocolate is made on an artisan micro-scale basis from bean to bar in our own chocolate-making lab. And of course, experience the art and science of chocolate tasting and appreciations from the cocoa bean to finished premium chocolates, including pairing, under the expert guidance of two of the ‘Best Chocolatiers in the World’!

Activities: All "Cocoa Bean To Chocolate Tasting & Appreciation" sessions are presented by world acclaimed chocolate-makers & chocolatiers Dominique & Cindy Duby. The session last approximately 90 minutes of presentation time.

Each attendee receives an individual 'Tasting Kit' that consist of about 36 different chocolate items to be tasted throughout the guided session ranging from roasted cocoa beans from different origins, cocoa liquors, mini chocolate bars from different origins, finished chocolates (I.e. flavored ganache) from the different chocolate aroma wheel groupings, hand-painted praline cocoArt and more. Our own novel 'Chocolate Tea' is served throughout the session as a palate cleanser.

A Tasting & Pairing component is also part of the session and features a dedicated tasting beverage flight including wine (table, sweet and/or fortified), beer, and spirit paired with chocolates specifically designed for pairing through aroma encapsulation.
