World Chocolate Day 7th July

We are celebrating World Chocolate Day 2018 by hosting some exclusive tasting sessions at Exeter’s Artigiano cafe and wine bar. Spaces are limited, so book early to avoid disappointment.

Introduction to Chocolate Tasting on World Chocolate Day

Join festival organiser, trained educator and certified chocolate taster (with the International Institute of Chocolate and Cacao Tasting) Nicola on a chocolate tasting journey through the basics of what is fine chocolate and the sensory elements used in chocolate tasting.

This 45 minute session will provide you with a good introduction into chocolate tasting and includes tasting 6 or more different origin or blended fine dark chocolate bars for an understanding of aroma, length, texture and taste.

An idea of what we will discuss, includes:

  • What is fine chocolate?
  • Taste and profile fine chocolate.
  • The main origins and varieties of cacao.
  • How the cacao is produced, and how chocolate is made.
  • Recognising flaws in chocolate.

Each attendee will be able to take a bar of chocolate away from the session, and contact details for any further questions not addressed during the event.
