This Valentine’s Day, grab your soul mate, bestie or partner, and discover your inner chocolate artiste. The Art of Chocolate begins with a spread of praiseworthy craft chocolates. Your chocolate diva/guide Ruth will lead you through a sensory (and fun) tasting across a specially-designed chocolate flavor map. After a bit of wine and some laughs, we’ll bring out the watercolors and canvases to paint what you taste. Maybe it’s a splash of deep red to represent berry notes or perhaps yellow-dotted pointillism to capture flavors of passionfruit. Whatever you taste is inspiration for your canvas. No experience necessary either for painting or tasting chocolate! Just come and enjoy them both in a new expressive way. Guaranteed fun and inspiration. Each guest will leave with a very special gift.
About the Artist:
If you truly love chocolate, here’s your match: Ruth Kennison is L.A.’s “bean-to-bar chocolate queen” and number-one chocolate educator according to KCRW’s Good Food, The New York Times and others. Her sold-out classes cover every aspect of the chocolate-making process, from sourcing cacao to sprinkling pixie dust on delectable bonbons. Ruth is resident chocolate diva and chocolate instructor at The Gourmandise School, and founder of the The Santa Monica Chocolate Society (yes, a real thing). She trained at The French Pastry School in Chicago and the Callebaut Chocolate Academy, and travels the world, tasting, speaking and learning about the best chocolate. She is a popular international speaker about all aspects of chocolate and a frequent judge for chocolate awards. She created The Chocolate Project to share her love of chocolate and to help people find their “chocolate palate” and become better chocolate consumers. Find her at www.chocolate-project.com @chocproject and @smchocsociety.
