THE SANTA MONICA CHOCOLATE SOCIETY: Chocolates from the Origin
 

The Santa Monica Chocolate Society gathers every month to celebrate and savor the finest, rarest and tastiest chocolate on Earth. Once a month, Gourmandise chocolate expert Ruth Kennison opens her wondrous cabinet of carefully curated bean-to-bar chocolates from around the world for thoughtful tastings and discussions. Each class features a different themes; from chocolate tastings to guest chocolate makers, confectioners or cacao bean farmers to flavor hunters. No bonbon will be left behind. You can expect to taste a minimum of 5 exquisite chocolates.


THEME:

Join Ruth for another evening of chocolate made where they are grown

Cacao is grown 10-20 degrees north and south of the Equator.  Traditionally, countries that grew cacao did not produce chocolate, and there are many reasons for that, ranging from environmental factors to geopolitics. Countries that grow cacao are now, thanks to direct trade and the growth of the craft chocolate movement, producing some of the most interesting single-origin chocolate on the market. This is good news for chocolate lovers but, more importantly, for the local growers and suppliers in their respective regions.  Find out why and how delicious chocolate made in the countries they are grown in can taste!

THE SANTA MONICA CHOCOLATE SOCIETY: David Menkes of Letterpress Chocolate
 

The Santa Monica Chocolate Society gathers every month to celebrate and savor the finest, rarest and tastiest chocolate on Earth. Once a month, Gourmandise chocolate expert Ruth Kennison opens her wondrous cabinet of carefully curated bean-to-bar chocolates from around the world for thoughtful tastings and discussions. Each class features a different themes; from chocolate tastings to guest chocolate makers, confectioners or cacao bean farmers to flavor hunters. No bonbon will be left behind. You can expect to taste a minimum of 5 exquisite chocolates.


THEME:

Join David Menkes of Letterpress Chocolate for an evening of craft chocolate tasting from his collection of bars.

Cacao is grown 10-20 degrees north and south of the Equator.  Traditionally, countries that grew cacao did not produce chocolate, and there are many reasons for that, ranging from environmental factors to geopolitics. Countries that grow cacao are now, thanks to direct trade and the growth of the craft chocolate movement, producing some of the most interesting single-origin chocolate on the market. This is good news for chocolate lovers but, more importantly, for the local growers and suppliers in their respective regions.  Find out why and how delicious chocolate made in the countries they are grown in can taste!
