At a Haunted by Chocolate Tasting event, Chocolate Maven & Professional Chocolatier Loyd Auerbach will lead folks through a tasting of exceptional Chocolates. You'll learn a bit about the history, health benefits, variety and making of the food of the gods (the literal translation of Theobroma Cacao, Chocolate's parent plant) while you are guided in tasting various samples.

There are several possible ways to do a tasting, and we like to work that through with the folks putting on the event to decide what chocolates to include. We normally suggest 4 to 6 tastes, but we can do more or less. In general, we don't usually work with filled chocolates or truffles, but ultimately, that's up to the host of the event.

For sit down presentations, everyone is provided with a tasting notes sheet, and instruction on what to pay attention to while tasting. All of the senses are involved, and the tasting reflects this. People are asked to share their perceptions along the way.

Beyond that, during the tastings I provide a bit of history, where cacao comes from, information on how chocolate is made, fun facts about chocolate from pop culture, a bit about the health benefits that are coming out these days, and of course (and in some respects most relevant), background on the chocolate makers whose wares we are sampling. (Yes, I said we -- don't think I'll miss out on any chocolate, do you?)

The tasting sessions average 60 - 90 minutes. However, I will work with you to make sure this works within your time frame. Past tastings have been as short as 30 minutes (fewer samples) and as long as two hours (more samples, a little psychic entertainment, and more fun facts).

I can also set up a "Tasting Bar" - a set station at an event for people to come by and taste a flight of chocolates with a little extra guided information.

Finally, I also produce my own gourmet chocolates - solids and truffles - and can make special give-aways or favors for your events.
