  • 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 Julian Baggini, food philosopher and craft chocolate superfan. He is the author of numerous books of philosophy including the award-winning The Virtues of the Table and the recent How the Word Thinks. he is academic director of the Royal institute of Philosophy. With the help of tastings of craft chocolate we’ll be investigating what the humble cocoa bean teaches us about the nature of experience, the good life and our responsibilities to others. We’ll also be asking: Is good food purely a matter of taste? What is “natural” food and is it better? What should we believe about the health benefits and risks of chocolate?

    This is a ticketed event.


    Do I need a ticket to attend this tasting?

    Yes, we have a limited number of spots available at each talk.

    Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

    No, everyone is welcome.

    What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

    The nearest stations are King’s Cross and St Pancras, but Euston is also a short stroll away.

    Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
