Being a chocolate taster is a tough job, but someone has to do it. This class is an 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 you’ll put your newfound knowledge to the test by tasting a flight of five chocolates individually, and then participate in a group discussion about what we tasted. We’ll end by sharing our tips on how to improve your chocolate tasting palate. 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. Content is geared toward guests ages 12 and up. This class runs on Zoom video conferencing software and each participant will need a device in order to access it.
