Valentine's day need not be the only time you can celebrate with chocolate and wine...and thank goodness! After the Wine and Chocolate class I just experienced hosted by Taste of Chocolate at the College Club of Boston, I can easily see both fitting quite nicely into my daily diet.
This class, An Evening of Chocolate and Wine, is one of many such chocolate inspired evenings offered by the Boston Chocolate School. This particular one is offered twice a month.
The set up is simple and elegant, easy going and informative...all good things! Although the College Club of Boston is a fancy accomodation spot, (I got a sneak peak of one of their suites) the class is held in the dining room, which has a distinct homey feel.
You enter and each place is set up with an array of different wines and six different pieces of chocolate. (and a few take home chocolate treats as well!)
Once seated, you will be guided through a brief history of wine and chocolate by the wine expert and pastry chef respectively. I learnt some fascinating fun facts as well as the proper etiquette when it comes to wine tasting...most notably the 5 Cs...see, swirl, smell, sip and savor.
