As a chocolate sommelier, my mission is to grow the ranks of fine chocolate supporters through engaging storytelling, video training, and collaboration with chocolate industry professionals. I’ve been a speaker at several chocolate festivals, such as the Dallas Chocolate Festival, the DC Chocolate Festival, and the Fine Chocolate Industry Association.
Pre-COVID, I used to lead wine and chocolate pairing events at private clubs and wineries in the Philadelphia area. These days you’ll most likely find me in front of a tablet leading a Zoom bean-to-bar chocolate tasting. I schedule one ticketed chocolate tasting per month and several private online chocolate tastings per week. Please sign up to the 37 Chocolates newsletter to be notified of the next ticketed tasting, as I don’t always post about them on this page.
“You are very well suited to lead these classes. I appreciated your efforts to draw participation by all the guests and that your joyful personality really came through. This can be challenging with a virtual format but it worked because of you.” – C.
“I had such a wonderful time at your chocolate tasting this evening—thank you for an event that was as delicious as it was fascinating! Such an incredible group of participants, too! I loved hearing about the single origin … chocolate bars, and they are some of the best chocolate I’ve had. It reminded me of a family trip to Ecuador a few years back, where we visited a cacao plantation and got to see their whole growing, roasting and chocolate-making operation.
I’m so glad I got to participate, and I look forward to future events.” – T., California
“Thank you so much for today’s tasting. We had a lot of fun. It was so nice to see Maxime and Elfi again today. Their chocolates are so good! My kids also really like all the chocolates. We have attended so many tastings and it’s always fun but having a good host is so important. We can’t wait for your next event. Thank you!” – Jacqueline
