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 with a sweet inclusion (think cherries or potato chips), to satisfy a wide range of tastes. Good to know: the bars I curate are all made with transparently traded cacao beans.
International attendees are welcome // As you’ll guess from my accent, I’m originally from France: while I lead the majority of my events in English, you can trust me to host successful tastings in French. Does your group include international attendees? Fantastic, we’ll leverage my international network of chocolate partners to have kits shipped to multiple countries, including (but not limited to) Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, France, India, New Zealand, the UK, and more.
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 create 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. You can reach me at (610) 306-2350.
37 Chocolates is proud to have a prestigious list of clients, which include the most famous internet search engine, national law firms, a State bar association, and an NFL football team. While I could have inserted a list of client logos below, I’ve chosen to include individual testimonials because I ultimately serve people.
Fabulous corporate team event!
Estelle’s chocolate tasting events are by far the best remote team events I’ve ever attended. I liked the first one so much that I planned another one for my immediate team. Estelle has achieved the perfect format through a combination of personal storytelling, sharing other chocolate stories, and then asking great questions that allow attendees to participate, all in an authentic way. Estelle effortlessly takes 99% of the awkwardness out of bonding with your colleagues over Zoom. And the chocolate is the best I’ve ever eaten!
Absolutely Amazing and Unforgettable Experience!!
We booked a 1-hour chocolate tasting with Estelle and 37 Chocolates. Wow! What an amazing experience! Estelle was absolutely fantastic to work with. She returned my inquiry rapidly, and we chatted about the desires/tastes of our group. She picked three AMAZING chocolates. The meeting was by ZOom, and she went through how chocolate was made, which we all found very interesting. She had photos and figures that she shared that really embellished the experience. Estelle allowed lots of time for questions. The chocolate was unlike anything I had tasted, and eye opening. I would most definitely do this again. You will love it!
Truly special experience
Estelle is amazing and her bean-to-bar chocolate tastings paired with the incredible community she has built are truly special experiences. Estelle is so knowledgeable and has tapped into fabulous chocolate makers and it’s fascinating to hear their stories. Estelle is an amazing host, writer and inspiration. Estelle’s tastings are truly a highlight for me, and I can’t recommend Estelle and 37 Chocolates enough.
I really enjoyed how you interacted with the whole group, and the lightness… it felt like I was sitting in an actual room with people… I was really happy to feel the ‘humanity’ during the session, which was unexpected for a virtual event.
A gift I will keep giving myself
I’ve been wanting to learn more about craft chocolate and had researched a few different options for virtual tastings. I am so glad I chose Estelle’s. She is not only a wonderful teacher with a wealth of knowledge and tips, but she creates such an inclusive and welcoming environment in which absolutely anyone can learn and share. I loved the unexpected paths our tasting discussion went down. We weren’t sitting there solemnly “rating” chocolate or cataloguing tasting notes. Estelle instead elicited a joyful discussion, which is what chocolate is all about. I can’t wait for the next one. Very glad to have found this chocolate-loving community. Thank you Estelle for bringing us together and sharing your wisdom. Now off to eat delicious leftover chocolate for breakfast 🙂
