Event description

Description

We want to bring fine chocolate making back to York and we're inviting you to join us - come and discover more about our plans with a special Tutored Chocolate Tasting Session

York was once known as the Chocolate City with companies like Terry’s of York, Rowntree, Cravens and Lazenby creating chocolates that became the iconic household names of our childhood. Nearly every York family had someone working in one of the big York companies. The cocoa would arrive on barges up the River Ouse, the smell of roasting cocoa would linger over the city like a warm welcome to York and the railways would take products with the York name to every corner of the world.

The team from York Cocoa House want to ensure that this story of York is not just a thing of its past, we want to make sure it continues to be part of York’s future.

We're building York Cocoa Works - a Chocolate Production, Chocolate Academy and Chocolate Development Centre at 10 Castlegate in the heart of York. We'll be bringing raw cocoa into York from farmers and communities from around the world to create our chocolate. We want to demonstrate to visitors how chocolate is created, from the raw cocoa ingredients to our finished chocolates, cakes and drinks that you can taste, work with, learn from and enjoy. We want to share our passion, knowledge and chocolate with those who want to learn to work with chocolate innovatively in an environment where York's chocolate makers can share their skills with a new generation, where anyone can become a chocolate maker and share and shape a future chocolate industry here in York!

Join our Chocolate Tasting Panel and learn more about how chocolate is made, how we are creating our chocolate and sourcing our cocoa with this special tasting sesssion at our York Cocoa Works stand in St Sampson's Square at York Food and Drink Festival.

The session will last approximately 45 minutes and includes 6 different chocolate samples and a classic hot chocolate to sit in or take away at York Cocoa House after your tasting session or at any point during the Festival program.
