Chocolate is the new wine

CORPORATE & PRIVATE EVENTS

If you have ever been to a fine wine tasting then you will know just what to expect from a craft chocolate tasting. Fine chocolate is, after all, the new wine. Getting together to learn how to taste, by sampling some of the world’s finest craft chocolate, is an innovative, educational and fun experience. If you are planning a team gathering, hen party, that special anniversary or you just want to get together with colleagues, friends or family, a fine chocolate tasting experience could be just what you are looking for.

Sessions can be based on an in person or online Cocoa Encounters Discovery Experience or tailored to your needs.

Private and corporate tasting sessions are available online as virtual tastings or in person at venues across Greater Lincolnshire.

CHOCOLATE BOOK CLUBS

If you are thinking of adding craft chocolate to your book club evenings, why not let me help you get started?  I can attend book clubs in Lincolnshire or join you via Zoom. After your discussion, we will explore the characters and themes of your chosen good read through a tasting of four carefully curated craft chocolate bars. This is a great opportunity to learn the art of slow-tasting and to discover how to pair chocolate to your books.

Attendance via Zoom costs £40 plus the cost of purchasing the four bars. Prices for attending book clubs in Lincolnshire are available on request.
