Since the Jan Hot Chocolate tour filled up quickly, we just scheduled another Hot Chocolate Crawl on Feb 4
. Hot Chocolate Crawl - Feb
For something different we've got an Indoor Hot Chocolate Tasting scheduled for Feb 12
at the Chocolate Shop (the one of a kind chocolate boutique located only at the UES Food Emporium). This indoor tasting will be gourmet, high end hot chocolate, from renowned chocolatiers that for the most part are not sold anywhere else in the city (such as Valrhona, Christopher Elbow, Recchiuti, etc)
. Check out the link for the complete list of the 10 different varieties of hot chocolate that we'll be sampling. In addition, you receive 10% discount on all purchases in the Chocolate Shop and a goody bag - all for only $15! Please hurry there are only 6 spots left. Indoor HOT Chocolate Tasting!
Please note, after you RSVP, you have 10 days before these events to cancel with no penalty.
In addition, we've got only 14 spots left for the Vere Chocolate Factory Tour & Wine Tasting on Jan 30
. Normally Vere charges more but they gave our group a special discount and fyi this tour is private - just for us! For all you chocolate nerds this tour will be led by a Vere Chocolate team member who will answer all of your questions. The event also includes tastings of Vere's yummy assortment of chocolates paired with wine and even some champagne! Finally we will be parting with a generous goody bag all for only $40! (the least expensive tasting I've seen in NYC).RSVP no later than Jan 9. Vere Chocolate & Wine Tasting
Finally, I just posted another Making Chocolate from the Bean class on March 8
, since there was a lot of interest but not many people could make it to the last one. This day long, hands-on class
is for anyone interested in learning more about chocolate. You learn the process of making chocolate starting with cacao beans all the way through to full out chocolate in the form that we all know and so LOVE.
Best of all you get to take home what you've made, plus lunch is included. Again, if you sign up, but find yourself having to cancel 14 days prior, you will be refunded with no penalties. Making Chocolate from the Bean
Hope to see you soon.
