Slow Food chocolate tasting at "The Chocolate Garage"
Slow Food South Bay Chocolate Tasting at "The Chocolate Garage"
Join us for an intimate evening with the best bean-to-bar chocolate from around the world. Slow Food South Bay supports The Chocolate Garage because this business focuses not only on fair compensation and conditions for farmers and harvesters, but also supports the integrity of the entire process: from field to bar.
Also, in order to have unique flavors found only at the Chocolate Garage, the owner works closely with makers to curate distinct flavors, optimizing the "terroir" of the beans. Come hear her stories, and get a taste of her perspective of this fragile and fascinating industry.
This is your opportunity to:
- understand the difference in taste and integrity of high-quality chocolate versus the main-stream chocolate;
- advocate for cacao that is grown to protect the environment and the workers;
- and come celebrate with like-minded friends.
