June 2013 Chocolate Rendezvous
I hope you'll join us for the June Chocolate Rendezvous:
Location: Chocolopolis 1527 Queen Anne Ave N, Seattle
Date: Sunday June 23
Bring friends and be ready to experience chocolate!
|Hmmm...taste fine chocolate, meet other people interested in fine chocolate, talk, explore, and learn about fine chocolate, savor some more chocolate, repeat. It is an adventure you don't want to miss.
What is a chocolate rendezvous?
It is a meet up at a chocolate shop, where all of the participants purchase a fine chocolate bar to taste themselves and have the option to exchange small pieces of chocolate for a taste of chocolate from another participant.
Curious? This is how it works:
At the meet up location take a few minutes to check out the selection. Perhaps a bar from Hawaii? Maybe a fruity bar from Madagascar, or something dark from Columbia? Something a bit spicy? Whether it be something you've tasted before or something new to explore, make sure you purchase a bar that tickles your fancy, and fits your mood for the afternoon.
Taste your chocolate, let it melt on your tongue until it is a silky smooth puddle of chocolate full of flavor.
Now you choose, do you keep the bar all to yourself or offer to share a piece of your bar with other participants in exchange for a taste of their bar?
The next Finding Fine Chocolate Rendezvous will be:
Sunday June 23 2:30-4:00, drop in any time.
Location: Chocolopolis 1527 Queen Anne Ave N, Seattle.
Cost: You decide, just purchase a chocolate bar of your choice.
Planning to come? Need some help selecting a bar that will fit your palette? Just let me know and arrive a bit early and I would be glad to share what I know about the different origins and chocolate makers (it is much like choosing a wine, everyone likes something a bit different, we just need to find a bar that will please your palette).
P.S. Bring a palette cleanser to clear your palette between tastes. I prefer room temperature water and plain unsalted crackers. Feel free to bring friends too!
