Cooking with Chocolate Special | Friday 29th January, 8pm

Join us for a celebration of cooking with chocolate! Together we’ll be tasting 8 different bars to explore the difference between taste and flavour, how to taste chocolate, the ethics of the chocolate industry, and the long and fascinating history of cooking with chocolate. As ever, it’ll be fully interactive and will finish with a quiz (prizes to be won!).

As well as the 8 chocolate bars, this tasting kit also contains a bag of our Menakao cooking buttons, so you can try making the mousse yourself.

Chocolate Tasting with Chelsea Physic Garden | Friday 22nd January, 8pm

This special tasting is in support of London’s oldest botanic garden, Chelsea Physic Garden, and their fundraising campaign ‘The Hothouse Challenge’, aiming to raise the final £1 million to help restore their historic glasshouses, where you can find Theobroma Cacao within their Tropical Corridor. With every one of these Chelsea Physic Garden-inspired kits sold, we will donate 15% toward The Hothouse Challenge, and for every £100 we raise the John Brown Charitable Trust will also donate another £100.

Chocolate & Wine Tasting with 67 Pall Mall | Monday 15th February, 6pm

This Virtual Chocolate & Wine tasting is designed with a Valentines Day Theme in mind. We will compare, contrast and taste dark and dark milk chocolate bars crafted in the US, Norway, the Netherlands, Canada, Lithuania and Switzerland from bean origins including Piura (Peru), Esmereldas (Ecuador), Sambirano (Madagascar) and Arhuaco (Colombia). Paired with expertly-chosen wines, this is a tasting not to be missed by anyone who wishes to expand their palate and discover why chocolate & wine you need to do with your partner, rather than just gifting to your partner, on Valentines day.
