103: TastingBeginner • 1 hour
Being a chocolate taster is a tough job, but someone has to do it. This class is a short introduction to how we learn to taste chocolate—the techniques, the flavors to look for, and the vocabulary to describe what you find. We’ll share best practices and discuss what types of flavors we often find in finished chocolate. Then we’ll put your newfound knowledge to the test by tasting a flight of three chocolates individually, and then discussing what we tasted as a group. There are no expert chocolate tasters; there are only experienced chocolate tasters. And the more you pay attention to tasting chocolate, the more practiced you can become. Guests aged 12-15 are welcome to daytime classes if accompanied by an adult.
