WHAT YOU VISIT
Seaside Venue
During this culinary adventure you'll sip and savor the sweet delicacies of chocolate, and discover how it gets to your glass, mug or dessert plate. Upon arrival, enjoy a refreshing chocolate drink while your host regales you with the Mayans and Aztecs contributions to this "food of the gods." During an in-depth presentation, learn how the ripe, melon shaped cocoa pods are cracked open to extract the beans, and harvested and placed on vats, which starts the fermentation process.

With a spectacular view of the Caribbean to inspire you, join in the fun by grinding some of the traditional ingredients yourself and making your very own bar of chocolate. After the demonstration, indulge in a tasting of various chocolaty items including a delicious taco topped with a savory mole sauce, a pungent mixture of chilies, spices and chocolate that dates back to the early colonial period.

While chocolate can be sweet or savory, its intense flavor may make it difficult to pair with your favorite wine. During your seminar, your host will share the secret to the perfect pairing.
