Let’s have a chocolate party! For the chocolate lover in all of us, I offer private tasting events in NYC and the surrounding areas. Join me for discussion, comparison and banter as I lead your group through an hour and a half of pure chocolatey goodness.  

These events are perfect for company team-building, holiday parties, and more.

The best part: I come to you! I’ll bring the chocolate and any pairings, and you can relax, taste, and enjoy.

Here are a few of my most popular options, but I’m happy to tailor something to fit your needs.
