Expectations of a Festival of Chocolate

Chocolate is one of the few foods we as humans will plan an entire festival around. It knows no boundaries. Despite its tiny geographical crop footprint, the cacao bean has penetrated every culture with its uniquely seductive panache. One is never too old nor too young to crack off a corner of a fresh bar, inhale its personality and let it magically dance on their tongue. And chocolate goes with everything. It’s poured on insects and stuffed in olives, baked with, cooked with, danced with, paired with booze, bacon, yoga and meditation. We have worn chocolate. We make art, movies and literature about it. We even build things with chocolate.

Before you start calling yourself a connoisseur, you need to know how to properly taste chocolate. So get ready to use your senses.
