Learn Your Chocolate

chocolate class at LeFleur The Chocolate Lovers’ Guide and Tasting Journal is a non-fiction book combining the fundamentals of chocolate including types of chocolate, varieties of chocolate, storing chocolate, tasting chocolate and your impressions, and a place to record your chocolate’s history and tasting as well as saving your chocolate’s wrapper.  It is a device to record your journey through your chocolate world creating a road map taking you back to your cherished chocolate favorites. 

Join us on Friday, Nov. 20, 2009 for a chocolate tasting at Le Flour Bakery and Market from 6 – 8 PM.  During this time you will learn about the different types of chocolate available to you, the varieties of chocolate, how to store chocolate and conduct two chocolate tastings.  There will also be time for questions.  If you would like to bring your own chocolate bar(s) for tasting in addition to the ones provided, please feel free to do so. 

For this class, you will receive a copy of The Chocolate Lovers’ Guide and Tasting Journal written by Annmarie Kostyk, a local author.  In addition, you will be provided with three (3) different chocolate bars for tasting and a bottle of water and bread to cleanse your palate between tastings.  Please be sure to bring a pen.   Tasting is best done with a clean palate first thing in the morning.  Since that isn’t the case, please make sure that you don’t eat anything with strong flavors during the day of the tasting. Examples of strong flavored foods are onions, garlic, cabbage, peppers, spicy food, fried food, fast food, and strong cheeses.

The cost of the event is $25 and must be paid in advance at Le Flour.  There will be no refunds and the last day to sign up for the event is Wed. Nov. 18, 2009. Please keep in mind there is limited seating. Should you have any questions, please contact Le Flour at 773-631-1400 or visit their website here.  You may also contact Annmarie Kostyk at thecocoapod@yahoo.com for detailed questions about the event.

  1. assalamualaikum,

    i had a questions regarding chocolate liqueur. would you happen to know more about its making and if it is a halal ingredient?

    1. @Shamim- I have heard different opinions, but mostly that chocolate liqueur isn’t a liquor at all. However, I recommend taking the issue up with a scholar just to be on the safe side, insha’allah.
