A virtual chocolate tasting is a delicious & inclusive way to thank your colleagues for their hard work and your clients for their business; it’s also a fun way to bond with distant family & friends. Whether you want to celebrate the completion of a project with a small team or host a holiday party for your whole company, I’ll create an online event that will have attendees still raving about the next day.

Finding the right experience provider for your event can be tricky, so let me help you by sharing what sets my chocolate tastings apart.
I’m a chocolate connoisseur, not a choco-snob // White chocolate, milk chocolate, dark chocolate: I eat them all. Whether you feel the same or swear by the dark stuff, you’ll feel welcome at my events. Your tasting kit will include at least two single origin dark chocolate bars and one sweeter milk chocolate, all made using transparently traded cacao beans, to satisfy a wide range of tastes.
Details matter // I believe your chocolate tasting starts when you open your chocolate package, which is why I hand wrap all chocolate bars in tissue paper and include a personalized handwritten note in each shipment. Sure, these details take extra time, but they are the difference between a good and great chocolate tasting experience.
I can lead wine & chocolate pairings // Pre-COVID, I used to lead wine and chocolate pairing events at private clubs and wineries in the Philadelphia area. I’ve been lucky to learn about wine from award-winning winemakers, passionate sommeliers, and natural wine distributors, and I want to pass that knowledge on to you. You can learn about my approach to pairings here and, if you’re intrigued, fill out this form so we can plan an event.
You can call me // Does your event have a tight turnaround time? Will it include international attendees? If so, forget about email – we should talk to craft the right event for your team.

“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.” – Trudy, 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.
