What about a chocolate tasting?

Do you love chocolate and would you like to know more about where it comes from and how it is made? A chocolate tasting is a unique happening that is interesting for everyone – even those who do not like chocolate that much. 

A chocolate tasting is great for family, friends or colleagues gatherings. Or for baby showers and bachelor parties!

“Just give me a microphone, a stage, and people who like to explore new flavours.. and I’m off. Talking about cocoa and chocolate is what I love to do. Every day, all day. At home, with friends or even in the bar. There is a whole world out there and once you know it… there is no way back!”

“What I find so inspiring about Marika is that she has inexhaustible knowledge on cocoa and chocolate and an openness - or maybe even more an urge - to share that. For example, she helped me a lot in writing my book Chocolaterie. It’s thanks to her contribution that I was able to write it. In addition to her knowledge, she is also a very pleasant person who, with her appealing smile, can make everyone enthusiastic about the food of the gods.”
