Chocolate Tasting Evening Tuesday 7 November, 6.30-8.30pm Detour Café
Chocolate! Long popular in the UK as a naughty-but-nice confectionery, dessert or sweet hot drink, now so cool and on trend that it has its very own three day show at Olympia. There is much more to it than a quick sugar rush. Come and learn to savour the joys of real chocolate with Marie-Pierre Moine and Karen Gaudin.
Karen started her professional career in the family restaurant in Western France at a very young age. While training she developed her knowledge of food and cheese in particular. Then about 3 years ago a series of events lead to a craft chocolate Tasting: what had been just a interest became a passion.
Marie-Pierre got hooked early on the taste and texture of dark chocolate by treating herself to pain au chocolat on her way home from school. A food writer and editor she is now on the Board of the Academy of Chocolate.
Kelly Delautour is kindly opening her Detour Cafe for our sitting down tasting. The evening will include a surprise welcome canapé, a (small) glass of tawny port, a tasting of approx. 8 different chocolate bars, and a sweet ending. There will be a chance to buy raffle tickets and win exciting prizes. All profits will go to The Upper Room.
Ticket £10.60 for chocolate tasting PLUS glass of wine. Space limited so booking essential, email firstname.lastname@example.org to book and pay.
