Chocolate, or strictly speaking cacao, is one of the most complex foods on the planet. It is also one of the most popular, satisfying and sensual foods on the planet and that’s not just a coincidence.

So for chocoholics and foodie-lovers alike, after a considerable amount of research, testing and re-testing we’ve very carefully and creatively designed a totally unique organoleptic chocolate pairing workshop experience that’ll tickle taste buds and amaze at the same time.

With a myriad of interesting and exciting chocolate pairing combos to try, flavour matching chocolate and cheese for example or perhaps chocolate and bacon, guests will soon start to experiment themselves and that’s when the fun really begins! It’s rather like chocolate Hors d’oeuvres but with a unique and exciting educational and fun twist!

Our science of chocolate workshop is an awful lot more than just simply tasting different chocolates – it’s about understanding the technical nuances of chocolate and what chocolate pairings work best and why. It’s got theory, loads of practical and packed full of fun.

A chocolate pairing workshop can be run as stand-alone workshop but it works better combined with a chocolate masterclass for a longer, more rewarding chocolate experience, as it’s quite short around 45 minutes. Like all the chocolate workshops we run, we’ll bring everything that’s needed to run this amazing session. All we need is a venue, a room, some tables and plenty of excited guests!
