  • Description


    This Chocolate Week we are collaborating with Canopy Market, the weekly independent market at King’s Cross, to host a celebration of all things cocoa for a weekend of total sensory pleasure. From the 18th – 20th October, Canopy will host a capsule collection of craft chocolate makers, tastings, talks and demonstrations, all under the market’s beautifully restored Victorian glass and steel roof.

    At this interactive tasting and painting session, we’ll be joined by Hazel Lee. When we taste single origin chocolate, the task of putting into words the extraordinary variety of flavour notes that we experience can be a daunting one. There’s often a lot going on, from muted tones to punchy expressions, and it can be tricky to distinguish even the familiar tastes that pique our palates.

    For Hazel, tasting chocolate is truly a multisensory experience, with the flavours that she tastes triggering a visual perception of colours, which she then associates with the chocolate. Finding the words for flavours can often be a struggle, but through her extensive experience in tastings, she discovered that it was helpful to have possible flavour notes written out in front of her, helping to identify and verbalise exactly what tastes she can distinguish.

    Hazel developed a Taste With Colour Map as a tool to connect the colours that Hazel sees in her mind, incorporating 111 different flavour notes that she frequently encounters on her international explorations, tasting fine, single origin chocolate. Today we invite you to join Hazel for a session where we will taste a number of bars from around the world, and paint the flavours that you taste as you go.

    This is a ticketed event.
