Emozione 3 Chocolate Tasting
I’ve done wine tasting and I think most of us have had that experience. But since living in Italy I’ve been testing many things like they were fine wine. Given the long tradition Italians have with food they get to teach us the secrets of their cousine, wines and lifestyle. This time thanks to Emozione 3, the experience-gifts company, I had a session of Chocolate Tasting.
I admit I prefer white chocolate to the dark one, but didn’t tell this to the Chocolate ‘somelier’. The tasting experience consisted in a little bit of history of chocolate making and then testing 5 different types of 75% cocoa chocolates.
- The best chocolates are 75% cocoa or higher.
- Just like wine also chocolate differs in flavor notes, texture and finish. Each chocolate has its own personality.
- The differences in differente chocolate type depends on the % of cocoa, the region from where the cocoa beans come from, the timing the cocoa beans have been roasted.
This is one of the many experiences that Emozione3 offers to its clients all over Italy. I think an experience is the best gift ever.
