Chocolate Tasting Evenings

On Thursday 14th February and Thursday 28th March I will be holding special Chocolate Tastings at Serenity in Shrewsbury.

The events will be ticketed, with tickets available to buy from my shop or online (see the links below).

The evening will consist of

  • An introduction into chocolate, my shop and the chocolate I use to make my award winning truffles.
  • How to taste chocolate, and what to look for when buying chocolate
  • Pairing chocolate with wine
  • Single Origin Chocolates- an opportunity to try various single origin chocolates and find out about their origins.
  • Tasting and Conversation- the chance to try 12 of my best selling chocolates including the chocolates which have won awards. A great opportunity to try new exciting flavours while talking about your favourite tastes and flavours.
  • Question and Answer session

The evening will last roughly 2 hours with a complimentary glass of champagne of arrival & refreshments available to purchase throughout the evening.

I will also have a selection of chocolates available to purchase on the night with each ticket holder receiving a £5 voucher to spend on the night (included in the ticket price).

Ticket Price £20
