LISTEN, LEARN & LAUGH ABOUT CHOCOLATE
Come on a tasting tour of chocolates where I pair chocolate bon-bons and bars made by New York's finest chocolate makers (including me!) with a songs, accompanied by my band, The Tempered Souls.
Here’s how Chocabaret works:
1. You'll sit down to a platter of locally made chocolate bon-bons and chocolate bars, cacao beans and nibbling chocolate, plus everything you need to taste like an expert: a flavor wheel, score sheet, rating scale, palate cleansers and more!
2. I’ll share the story behind each chocolate and sing a song that matches some characteristic of the chocolate.
3. As the chocolate melts in your mouth, you'll explore the flavor notes and feelings the chocolate and the music inspire.
4. For each taste and tune, we'll chat about each chocolate and you’ll get to rate and score the chocolate according to your five senses.
The New York artisan chocolate makers featured in Chocabaret are:
Bond Street Chocolate
Fine & Raw Chocolate
Oliver Kita Chocolates
Divalicious Chocolate (that's me)
Chocabaret is entertainment with a fun education spin to it. You’ll learn:
How chocolate is made from bean to bar
How to taste chocolate like a pro
How to pick a great chocolate
About the chocolate makers
Some of the history of chocolate and maybe a lil’ of my “her-story” with chocolate (read: Learn how chocolate made me cry…)
FYI: Your ticket includes a platter of nine chocolate bon-bons and bars samples, cacao bean, nibbling chocolate, plus flavor wheel, score sheet, rating scale, palate cleansers, a bottled water, etc. A one drink minimum and gratuity is not included.
