Kallari Chocolate Tasting, Presentation & Potluck
Kallari is the world's only chocolate that is 100% owned by the indigenous cocoa growers and processed at a factory only a few hours from the farms. The Amazon-based chocolatiers will teach attendees about regional chocolate flavor profiles and illustrate the process of chocolate-making from cocoa seedlings to chocolate bars. The eye-opening, sensory-stimulating lecture will help you distinguish chocolate characteristics, discern roasting techniques and recognize regional origins, all while sampling gourmet chocolates from around the world.
Prior to the presentation there will be a themed potluck meal for everyone to enjoy. Please bring an appetizer, entrée, or salad that celebrates the flavors of South America, home to Kallari chocolate. Ted and Nina will provide all plates, glassware, and utensils.

The cacao beans for Kallari Chocolate are a blend of several varietals, with the main flavor attributed to the Cacao Nacional de Arriba bean. In 2004, these rare beans were singled out by the Slow Food Foundation for Biodiversity as a Presidium heirloom varietal.
Proceeds benefit the Kallari Foundation.
