Titillate your taste buds and satisfy your sweet tooth with this hands-on, chef-led demonstration and chocolate tasting by Zak’s Chocolate in time for Valentine’s Day. Surprise that special someone with handmade craft chocolate or bring them along for a decadent date night. There will be a cash bar featuring a signature cocktail and wine pairings to go perfectly with the handcrafted chocolate.
Learn how cocoa beans are transformed into chocolate and discover the world of natural flavors that can be found in craft chocolate. The event includes an overview about cocoa beans and chocolate-making; a video tour of cacao farming and post-harvest activities; a demonstration of micro-batch “bean-to-bar” craft chocolate-making; and a video tour of Zak’s small-batch production factory. Participants will taste freshly roasted cocoa beans, as well as see and taste chocolate as it is being made.
