The Power of Chocolate
Sunday, February 18, 2024
Join the Bailliage of Greater Washington, DC, on Zoom as we explore the chocolates of SPAGnVOLE some of the best artisanal chocolate in the world. Grown organically in the Dominican Republic, this chocolate is carefully fermented and handcrafted to reveal its best flavor and texture.
Doreen Pendgracs, the proprietor of Chocolatour (also known as the Chocolate Queen), will lead our tasting and share with us what makes this chocolate so special. Doreen’s passion has taken her all over the world seeking out the best artisanal chocolate. She has chosen to feature the chocolate artistry of SPAGnVOLA for this tasting adventure, which she has designed especially for us. If you think you’ve tasted great chocolate before, we don’t think you’ve tasted anything quite like this!
Prior to the event, we will ship to each participant a box of 12 curated chocolates along with three single origin chocolate bars. We will also email suggestions for libation pairings to complement the exquisite chocolate. The package will also include three of SPAGnVOLA’s gourmet hot chocolate mixes (ginger, cardamom, and nutmeg) – perfect to enjoy throughout the winter. On Sunday, February 18th, we will gather on Zoom with Doreen for the tasting and to learn about this notable chocolatier and chocolate.
