Chocolate and Wine Pairing Masterclass
Mon 24 April 2017, 19:00 – 21:00 BST
Charles Dickens once said “There is nothing better than a friend, unless it is a friend with chocolate." We have teamed up with the excellent Cocoa Runners to be that friend! For one indulgent night we'll pair outstanding chocolate with world-class wine.
Cocoa Runners have sampled over 5000 bars in a quest to find the world’s best chocolate from dedicated artisan chocolate makers. From Brooklyn to Budapest, Cleethorpes to Copenhagen and San Francisco to Saigon, passionate “bean-to-bar” chocolate makers are creating tantalizingly delicious chocolate bars. For every bar, Cocoa Runners have analysed and profiled its texture, flavour notes and intensity in a similar approach to wine tasting. When we started working with Cocoa Runners we were hugely impressed with the passion behind their work which compliments ours for all things vinious. It is a great match!
The indulgent evening will discover the production of chocolate and the plethora of styles and taste 12 delicious chocolates matched with 6 world-class wines presented by Streatham Wine House and West London Wine School co-owner Jimmy Smith and Cocoa Runners' Spencer Hyman.
