**This workshop will be live streamed via Zoom.**
Join us for a virtual chocolate-tasting class with Chocolopolis founder Lauren Adler. From the comfort of your home, this virtual class will lead you on a chocolate journey around the world. With Lauren as your guide, you will receive in advance a carefully organized chocolate package. You will taste chocolate made with cacao from different parts of the world while learning about cacao farming and artisan chocolate production.
Registration for this class will close 9 days prior to your class in order to receive your chocolate tasting package. Chocolate tasting packets are not intended to share. If you would like more than one, please register a second or third person. Lauren also recommends you taste the chocolate with a clean palate - yes, chocolate for dinner. If this is your first chocolate-tasting class, it's better you do it without the influence of other flavors.
Lauren Adler is a pioneer in the craft chocolate industry with over a decade of experience introducing consumers to fine chocolate. She was the founder of Seattle retail store Chocolopolis and she currently serves as the Vice President of the Board of the Fine Chocolate Industry Association (FCIA), a non-profit organization that promotes quality, innovations, ethical sourcing, and best practices in the fine chocolate industry.
She has been a speaker and panelist at numerous FCIA conferences, the Northwest Chocolate Festival and the Dallas Chocolate Festival. She has been a chocolate judge for the International Chocolate Awards, the Good Food Awards, and the Northwest Chocolate Festival, and she is co-founder of the Pacific Northwest Chocolate Society. Lauren enjoys sharing the stories of cacao and chocolate with chocolate lovers and watching the “a-ha” moments of new chocophiles as they discover how good chocolate can taste when crafted with fine flavor cacao.
