Sensational chocolate evening planned

_63354844_chcoolateThe Rotary Club of Sherborne Castles plans to introduce a new skill into Sherborne next month, just in time for Easter: it’s all about knowing your chocolates. The CHOCOLATE TASTING evening will also give attention to the most suitable wines to pair with chocolate, promising an evening of chocoholic delight.

Book your places now – and please bring guests, discerning ones of course. The event is on Monday 25th March 2013 at The Arch in Swan Yard.

Arrival time is 7.00 pm – 7.20 pm when you will enjoy a glass of prosecco. It’s important to be in your seats by 7.20 pm for a prompt start (Latecomers not admitted until 7.30 pm)

FIND OUT the difference between 40% and 75% cacao

DISCOVER if you prefer conching or kibbling

KNOW how to tell your gianduja from your ganache

MAKE SURE you know when to bite and when to swallow

  • You will hear some of the history of chocolate
  • You will enjoy lots of tasting and lip licking
  • You will decide which wine matches which chocolate
  • You will be quizzed on what you hear
  • There is a timely raffle just in time for Easter

Do note that you will only be eating chocolate and bread or water biscuits during the evening. Nevertheless, you will feel satisfied by the end of the proceedings.
