It will begin by all of us sharing our love for chocolate and then I will tell a brief history of cacao and chocolate. Then, we will proceed to taste cacao from around the world and understand the different flavor notes (just like wine!). Raw cacao has many benefits and unique properties that very few people know about. We will explain why this amazing ingredient has been used by humans for over 3000 years. We will go on and explain the process of making the chocolate while we do it together! The guest will pick whatever flavor they desire for the chocolate bar they will take home. In the end, we will eat a lot of chocolate!
I have always loved chocolate and I started making chocolate 5 years ago. Since then I have experimented with different ingredients and methods of making chocolate to create new flavors and experiences. My partner and I started a small chocolate company, CocoMo Chocolates, and have been hosting chocolate making workshops through the city of Santa Cruz, and through local grocery stores. I have just moved to Davis and would love to share my knowledge and make chocolate with you! Come join the fun!
I will be providing high quality, organic, and fair-trade cacao from Ecuador. I will also be providing organic coconut sugar…
I will be hosting the experience at my house at the N-Street Coop! It is a wonderful home, in a vibrant community.
