A very special Artisan Venezuelan Chocolate Tasting Workshop may be the perfect Valentine's gift for your loved one. Presented by Analiese Paik, Founder of the Fairfield Green Food Guide,this will be the first in a series of artisan chocolate tasting workshops planned for the year. They begin the tasting series in Venezuela, a country famous for growing old and rare cacao that’s prized by top chocolate manufacturers. The most flavorful and aromatic chocolate is made from Criollo and Trinitario varieties which represent only 5%-10% of global cacao production.
In this formal tasting workshop, you will learn to taste chocolate like a pro, using all 5 senses. More complex than wine, fine chocolate requires careful sensory analysis to detect and describe its harmonious flavors and aromas. They will teach you how to describe the flavors and aromas you detect through the use of various teaching aids.
At the end of the evening, each participant will have completed a tasting card profiling all 5 chocolates. It’s a great way to learn what you like and remember your favorites.
