I am a freelance writer, speaker, and chocolate educator in the Philadelphia area. For collaborations, partnerships, or schedule a chocolate tasting, drop me a line at email@example.com. My mission is to make fine chocolate accessible and available to the widest number. As such, I work with makers to create engaging wrappers (please-oh-please, no more “winnowing” on the back of package!). Read more about my philosophy and contact me if you think we can work together.
I regularly host tasting workshops in Chester County, Pennsylvania. On a typical, 90-minute workshop, you’ll sample cacao beans and 4-6 different chocolates. Please sign up to the 37 Chocolates newsletter to be notified of the next tasting event or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a private tasting.
