My nerves were tested a little bit already for this event. The organic, 70% dark chocolates are finally made and on their way to Epcot. Truffles don’t get any fresher than this! Demand has been so strong for this new product since we introduced in last month, that we’ve had a hard time keeping them in stock. I need 300 pieces to ship today to Epcot for the classes I’m teaching this weekend as part of the Epcot Food & Wine Authentic Taste Program.
I’m teaching three classes on chocolate this Friday – Sunday. A class on chocolate, you ask? What is that all about? It’s “All About Chocolate”. I’ll talk about the history of chocolate, where it’s grown and how it becomes eating chocolate, and best of all – lead the group in a session on how to taste and appreciate fine chocolate. Participants will get to taste 34% cocoa content milk chocolate, 54% and 75% cocoa content dark chocolate, and last but not the least, the much sought-after, 70% Dark Chocolate Organic Truffles.
