  • 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 dedicated chocolate market packed with the best craft chocolatiers, tastings, talks and demonstrations, all under the market’s beautifully restored Victorian glass and steel roof.

    At this tasting session, we’ll be joined by Greg D’alesandre from Dandelion. Greg has been working with chocolate for over twenty years, and making chocolate for the last decade. He started making liquid nitrogen truffles in college with “borrowed” equipment from the physics lab. He’s been with Dandelion Chocolate for 6 years as part owner and Chocolate Sourcerer, traveling the world to find great cacao to use to make great chocolate. He is co-author of “Making Chocolate: From Bean to Bar to S’More.” He feels strongly about direct sourcing cacao and building lasting relationships with the network of cacao producers and chocolate makers around the world. While his background is in electrical engineering and product management, he’s been using these skills to help run the business. His role at Dandelion has taken him all around the world and of late he’s been seeking new cocoa sources in Africa. In recent years, he’s travelled to Sierra Leone, Cote d’Ivoire, Tanzania, and Madagascar…

    This is a ticketed event.
