The Experience Tasting Lab
Most people love chocolate, yet many have very little knowledge where cocoa comes from, how it is grown and/or how it is processed into the wonderful treats they enjoy.
Our tasting tours & events Experiences are presented by the chefs/owners of Wild Sweets® – Dominique & Cindy Duby - who know chocolate inside out! A rare and unique opportunity to 'Meet The Makers' and Explore their novel world of chocolate and Experience their hyper-creative sweets, which made them One of the ‘25 Best Chocolatiers in the World’. The format is fun, informal, interactive and ‘Edutaining’ with a focus to delight your taste buds with all things chocolate from cocoa beans to finished haute chocolate in various forms from single origin bar to gastronomical multi-courses experiences!
