You are cordially invited to an Exclusive Wine and Fine Chocolate Tasting featuring Filipino inspired chocolate creations from Marti Chocolatt paired with an exclusive selection of wines specially choiced by Santos Uy (Mignon, Bacaro).
Join us for this special fundraiser, an evening pairing
Filipino-inspired chocolates and wines at Kazuyo

Tonet Tibay of Marti Chocolatt is
a Filipina chocolatier who incorporates Filipino flavors in her chocolates, which for this tasting will include the
Ube ~ purple yam in a white chocolate ganache
Durian ~ durian in 33% milk chocolate
Senorita ~ sweet ripe bananas with dark Jamaican rum in a milk chocolate ganache
Jasmine Citron ~ queen of jasmine pearl tea with grapefruit zest
Barako ~ Liberica coffee beans in a milk chocolate ganache
Pina - pineapple caramel with Ilocano sea salt
Santos Uy, owner of Mignon Wine and Cheese Bar, is a Filipino sommelier very much in touch with our home food and as a result, knows just the right wines to pair with Tonet's delicious offerings.
General admission to this special culinary event will include the chocolate and wine pairing (six chocolates and four wines) at $35.
VIP admission includes the chocolate and wine pairing plus a box of chocolates and wine to take home for $75.
Event capacity is limited and PREFERENCE will be given to those attendees who pre-pay for the event.
If you'd like to dine before the event at Kazuyo Sushi, Kazuyo is offering a special 15% discount for all attendees who mention FilAm ARTS when they make their dinner reservations or when they walk into the restaurant.*
