Most memorable chocolate experience:
Just returned from Ecuador - June 2011. Visiting the kallari Co-op and living with the Kichwa natives that make the chocolate. Tasting the cacao pulp for the first time is now my most memorable chocolate experience. Cannot be described, a sweet creamy taste like nothing else.

My mission though Exotic Chocolate Tasting is to bring awareness of the people that created the chocolate, the chocolate health benefits, and to demonstrate how to mindfully savor every morsel for your well being in a deep tasting experience.

Not just any chocolate… chocolate that was made by farmers that are fairly compensated and preserve the delicate ecosystem of their rain forests. By Ethical Chocolatiers that partner with the farmers then transform cocoa beans with the purest of ingredients with integrity and love to capture chocolates true essence.

My favorite chocolate is:
Kallari, Madecasse, Patric, Askinosie, Amedei, Antidote, L'Artisan Du Chocolat, Dandelion

Inspiring Journey to Italy from the North to Sicily, for old & new chocolates & wines

Posted on October 28, 2013 at 2:00pm 0 Comments

Thank you for being part of my chocolate world. It has been almost four years since Exotic Chocolate Tasting was launched. Many of you have been with me since the beginning appreciating chocolate in a whole new way. Just like you, I have evolved, too. With each experience I've been blessed with new insights that I can't wait to share with you.

This year has brought many changes to Exotic Chocolate Tasting. No longer focused on public events, most of my chocolate and wine pairings…


Bean to Bar event in NYC's Soho

Posted on August 5, 2009 at 4:59pm 5 Comments

My first chocolate meet up was met with many chocolate enthusiasts in a Soho art gallery, a fitting place for the fine variety of chocolates and large photo’s that covered the walls. After testing many of the samples, we gathered for a presentation by Dr. Kristy Leissie, whose book Chocolate Planet is a memoir of traveling around the world studying the history and present of the cocoa trade routes. Enjoyed meeting fellow chocolate lovers… The pictures tell the story.… Continue

yes, I was there, but had to leave early. Sadly, before the samples. Was hosting a superbowl party that afternoon, and had to get back to kitchen. See u at the next one!

I hope you did not miss the chocolates we sampled, not yet released dark with nibs & a hint of salt, a milk that tasted like caramel. Clay had some from Granada that was rich and a 75% Kallari. All were just exciting. Had dinner nearby after and the chocolate dessert did not compare to the bars.
