Or Chadash Sisterhood Presents: The History of Cocoa, and Chocolate Tasting
Join us as local artisan chocolatier John Paul Hepp from Chocodiem in Clinton joins us at Or Chadash to give us a presentation on the interesting history of cocoa and chocolate. The presentation will be followed by a tasting. Enjoying high-quality chocolate is an experience like no other. The flavors are rich and complex, and there is a large variation in flavors among various chocolates. In fact, the flavor compounds found in dark chocolate exceed those in red wine. Chocolate tasting is not unlike wine tasting. Each type of chocolate bar contains its own set of unique flavor profiles. Since the cacao bean is the source of all chocolate (as grapes are the primary source of wine), its flavors can be imparted by a multitude of variables, such as topography, weather (e.g. rainfall, amount of sun, etc.), soil conditions (e.g. type, nutrient content, drainage properties, etc.), post-harvesting processing (e.g. fermenting, roasting, etc.), and of course genotypic properties. With so many variables affecting the flavor of just one chocolate bar, it's important to taste chocolate carefully so that you can extract the fullest flavor potential. John Paul will guide us through the tasting process so we can learn to detect these different variables, focusing on the differentiation of cocoa percentages.

Please RSVP by January 18th.
Note that dairy, eggs, nuts and other allergens may be present in the chocolate tasting.Save the Date for these upcoming events...
