Chocolate & Wine Tasting with the Cocoa Runners and Le Cave de Pyrenne.
Join us for a Cocoa Runners Tasting Evening at SOURCED Market in Marylebone. This evening we’ll be pairing wine and chocolate. Ever a popular combination, we’ll be tasting 5-6 wines, and selecting your favorite matching (and contrasting!) pairs. Much like the grapes of a fine wine, the cocoa’s origin and percentage cocoa plays a large part in how a bar of chocolate tastes.
From Brooklyn to Budapest, Cleethorpes to Copenhagen and San Francisco to Saigon, passionate “bean-to-bar” chocolate makers are creating tantalizingly delicious chocolate bars. Just as the way grapes are grown and nurtured is critical for the quality of great wine, the same is true for cocoa beans and chocolate. Soil conditions, climate and the care and attention of the farmers and chocolate makers all impact the final product. Of course, there’s much more to recommending wine than asking “red or white?”, and we think there’s more to recommending chocolate than simply “milk or dark?”. For every bar we have have analysed and profiled its texture, flavour notes and intensity in a similar approach to wine tasting.
We’ll be tasting some of the finest small batch single estate dark milk chocolate being made today. Combining the creamy richness of milk chocolate and the powerful intensity of dark chocolate, these bars truly have the best of both worlds.
The tasting will start promptly at 7pm.
As we’re tasting wine, entrance is strictly over 18s only.
