Cater to your tastes with out in depth virtual tastings which provided focused approaches to different aspects of chocolate. Find out if you’re a so-called “super taster” (and what that means – if anything) at our taste and flavour tasting where you’ll find out all about the science behind craft chocolate’s unique myriad of flavours. Or, if you’re more interested in the environmental impacts of the chocolate industry – and how craft chocolate is more helpful than harmful – see our environment tasting (coming soon).
Our In-Depth Special Sessions
Taste & Flavour
If you’ve ever wondered what gives craft chocolate (or anything) its distinctive, myriad of flavours then this is the tasting for you! the science of “taste” is fascinating and we’re here to supply you with the facts so you can better understand what exactly goes on when we taste chocolate. And if you’re intrigued by the blue tongue you see before you, come along and we’ll shed light on this bizarre image. Don’t worry, you won’t have to paint your tongue blue – but we WILL be testing whether or not you’re a super taster and what this might mean.
These tastings will be held every other Thursday from the 11th of October at 8pm (GMT).
