Welcome everyone to my page and thank you so much for visiting! I am very excited to share a tasty new at home activity I know we will all enjoy! Now, I know that the scenery for our “usual” wine and food tasting experiences have looked a little different lately as we are all spending more time at home versus tasting rooms and restaurants. However, I think there are some great options to enjoy all of our time at home, including one of my personal favorites, a virtual chocolate and wine pairing. How often can you say you had the chance to sit down with a professional Chef Owner and top Chocolatier in America from the comfort of your own living room or kitchen? Well, my friends over at Delysia Chocolatier, recently named 2020’s Best Chocolatier in the Americas, is hosting a delicious tasting experience that you definitely want to be apart of!
Their new DELIGHT Immersive Chocolate Experience Series is kicking off with their “Wine a Little” virtual experience this upcoming Saturday, August 29th, also known as “National Red Wine Day”. Chef Owner & Chocolatier Nicole Patel will be hosting this exciting (and delicious) tasting to showcase some of their award winning chocolate truffles and how to pair with wine for a perfect combination. Nicole has taken her knowledge and passion for chocolate all the way to beautiful Aspen to speak at the renowned Food & Wine Classic. Sounds like a dream job and career to me!
Now I know many of you have already gone wine tasting and know the “proper” steps for how to test wine, but did you know that there is a way to properly taste chocolate? Don’t worry I was somehow not informed of this either but I am very excited to learn from the professional herself at this chocolate and wine event. I think this experience will be a perfect way to mix up a virtual evening with friends, an at home date night, or you can simply enjoy this dessert pairing after dinner.
If you would like to participate in the “Wine a Little” experience make sure to visit the Delysia Chocolatier website to reserve your spot. They also have a fabulous list of wines you can pick up from the grocery store or wine market that will pair perfectly with the chocolate truffles. The four delicious truffles can be delivered with temperature controlled shipping right to your front door! Make sure to place them in the refrigerator or a cool spot in your home so they don’t melt. I hope to see you all in two weeks and we can sip on some wine and munch on the truffles!
