Guided Chocolate Menu Tasting

Saturday 22nd February

Join us on Saturday 22 February from 3pm to 5pm as we present an immersive degustation menu, conceived by Chocolate Consultant, Cat Black and MasterChef finalists, Geoff Warburton and Alex Talbot.

After a chocolate-based cocktail and canapés on arrival, Cat will provide a brief introduction, before Alex and Geoff unveil their six courses, which will take you on a journey of chocolate excellence. Incorporating limoncello, blackberry, hazelnut, raspberry and yuzu, the tasting aims to showcase the diversity of the decadent ingredient.
