Chocolate tasting event with optional wine pairing! 18 July at UCL


We are pleased to invite you to a very special evening of craft chocolate tasting, with optional wine pairing, by Cocoa Runners. It will take place on Thursday 18 July 2019 from 17:00 – 19:30 in the lovely Haldane Room, Wilkins Building. Try some lovely chocolate and wines, and make some interesting new connections!

“The key to great chocolate starts with the finest beans and careful harvesting, fermentation and drying. And just as in coffee, so with chocolate ‘less is more’; craft chocolate makers are all about coaxing the full flavour of their beans, adding and taking away as little as possible. At a Cocoa Runners Craft Chocolate tasting, you’ll be invited to ‘go under the hood’ of over a dozen craft chocolate makers and their bars, looking in detail at the intricacies of cacao genetics, harvest, fermentation, vintages, conching and roasting, and examining how each stage of cacao production can affect the flavour of a bar.’

Thanks to subsidy from UCL Women, a £5 ticket will allow you to try both chocolates, and wine if you would like it.

Space is very limited, so register as soon as you can!

We look forward to seeing you there!
