Initiation to the delicate and robust world of high cocoa percentage chocolate bars

Chocolate connoisseurs all agree - the dark chocolate bar is the ultimate expression of chocolate art. This tasting teaches you how to recognize an excellent chocolate bar; how to discern it from the good, the average or the sub-par one; how to properly enjoy it, and take most out of the experience. We taste different chocolate bars, from different parts of the world, by different (yet all French) chocolate artisans. Great for a group or as a team building activity, this tasting allows you to learn a lot about French culture and gastronomy via your palate. So much of history is contained in food and so much of culture can be learned through tasting. Don't miss out on this unique experience - complete your understanding of all things French by indulging in finest chocolates of both France and indeed the entire world.


This is a seated tasting that takes place in a coffee shop. We don't go from chocolate store to chocolate store, we are seated in a coffee shop where we taste dark chocolate bars.
