Roxanne Browning, New York’s Chocolate Sommelier, will guide guests on a journey discovering chocolates from the Amazon rain forest to the tropical Islands paired with wine or straight up. A passport around the world from your home, office, restaurant, or wine bar. A happening event that is both entertaining and educational. Have fun with friends, family, or associates in this palate pleasing adventure!
Tasting chocolate is different than eating chocolate
Handcrafted chocolate makers rely on the flavor of rare cacao beans to shine. Unique as a snowflake, each single-origin bar will have a distinct flavor profile. Enjoy these award-winning chocolates while Roxanne describes their journey from bean to bar, how they sustain the rainforest and its indigenous people, and mindfully savor each bite for your well being.
Chocolate & wine…now that’s a perfect sensory experience! Roxanne’s original idea that pairs artisan chocolate with wine to enhance the flavors and nuances of both is proven when a guest has a sip with the chocolate. An “aha!” moment follows, infusion of flavors using all the senses will reveal a fun new way to enjoy these beloved pleasures.
Beer and spirit pairings are also available. See the video below for a peek!
