I am a freelance writer, speaker, and chocolate educator in the Philadelphia area. For collaborations, partnerships, to submit a story idea, or schedule a chocolate tasting, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m opinionated on the information I believe makers should provide on a chocolate wrapper (please-oh-please, no more “winnowing” on the back of package!), so if you’d like to solicit my feedback, please go ahead.
I regularly host tasting workshops in Chester County. 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.
