Hosted by Chocolatier & Chocolate Sommelier, Geoseph Domenichiello

This exciting and interactive workshop will take you on a journey to understand the truth about chocolate. This is a foundations course (Chocolate 101) that will give you a dynamic view of what chocolate is, as well as practical tools you can use to be a more discerning taster and smarter consumer. With over a decade of experience with chocolate, both as a chocolate sommelier and chocolatier, Geoseph has inspired many to strengthen or begin their journey with fine dark chocolate. Why is it called the sensory workshop? It's because not only will you learn the process and history by reading and listening, but also by tasting! We will learn how to eat fine chocolate using all 6 of our senses.

We will cover:

  • The process, from tree to bar (with samples)
  • The historical geography & evolution of chocolate (with samples)
  • Chocolate neurogastronomy
  • Professional tasting tools
  • A tasting of fine dark artisan chocolate from BC and the world.

You will acquire:

  • A grasp of how chocolate came to be
  • The crucial steps involved in producing quality chocolate & why it's important to you
  • Understanding how flavour works, and how it relates to chocolate
  • Practical tools for being your own chocolate tasting connoisseur
  • Literature to take home containing much of the information above

The tasting component will be dark chocolate only, with chocolate made from beans of different origins, and made by various chocolate makers. This is so that you can taste the difference in flavour based on the cacao bean and manufacturing, and not be distracted by other ingredients. Much like a purist would enjoy an espresso or wine tasting. We will focus mostly on BC and West Coast chocolate makers, to celebrate the skills and talent in our own backyard. However, we there will also be chocolate from 1 or 2 international makers in order to compare.

This is a fun and laid back workshop, where your input and questions enhance the experience. Come with an appetite as well as questions! Let's answer the questions you've always wondered about chocolate, and break down myths as we break a bar of chocolate and enjoy the afternoon together.


Chocolate will be dark, vegan, and gluten free.
