While the ongoing pandemic prevented us from throwing our annual Uncorked & Uncapped: Wine, Beer, and Food Tasting Experience, The Arc of Essex County is pleased to bring to you a virtual gourmet chocolate tasting event in time for Valentine's Day!  Taking place on Friday, February 12th at 8:30 p.m., this virtual couples tasting event is a delicious opportunity to relax, connect with a special someone, and enjoy tasting exquisite chocolate all to benefit a great cause.

Tune into your senses and immerse yourself in the aromas, textures, tastes, colors and intricacies of fine flavor cacao by sampling award-winning craft chocolate bars from all over the world.  Join Nadine Kerstan, certified Chocolate Sommelier, judge for the International Chocolate Awards and owner of the online boutique, Barometer Chocolate, as she guides you through tasting 4 award-winning bean-to-bar chocolates. You’ll learn about the art of savoring chocolate and increase your enjoyment and knowledge about this “​food of the gods​” in a 60-minute, delightful and celebratory workshop. Wine and spirit suggestions will be offered for those who care to pair!
