Chocolate /ˈtʃɒkᵊlət/ is a typically sweet, usually brown, food preparation of Theobroma cacao seeds, roasted and ground, often flavored with vanilla. Adventure / ədˈvɛntʃə/ noun an unusual and exciting or daring experience.
Chocolate is a fascinating and magical substance that connects people and communities together around the world. From the farmer, to the maker, to the eater; each play their part in the rich tapestry of cocoa.
Some of us are facilitators of these connections, bringing people together through chocolate inspired or chocolate themed events and workshops. Not just to help people appreciate the magic of cocoa, but to help you learn how to incorporate chocolate into your daily life as part of a quality and balanced lifestyle.
As a chocolate industry expert I run regular chocolate events including tastings, hands on workshops, food pairings and more artistic colour inspired chocolate tasting workshops for individuals, groups, corporate and brands looking for product consultancy. Please contact me for further information, I can’t wait to share the magic of cocoa with you!
I created this blog to inform people on chocolate tasting techniques, industry knowledge and where to find the world’s greatest chocolate spots in the most unlikely places. There’s also an interactive chocolate map, so I’d love to hear your thoughts on where else I need to go.
I am also a proud member and judge for the Academy of Chocolate and International Chocolate Awards, Head Judge for the New Zealand Chocolate Awards, and participate at global chocolate events including the London Chocolate Show, NW Chocolate Festival, Finebrogue Chocolate & Fine Food Festival and Grenada Chocolate Festival.
