Chocolate expert hosts tasting event with a difference

Sweet toothed foodies are in for a treat this Thursday when chocolate consultant and Valrhona Brand Manager Sam Smallman hosts a one-off tasting event.

Ever wondered what chocolate to match with your favourite tipple? Now’s your moment!

The event (7pm-9pm on Thursday April 19th) at The Old Church will see chocolate expert Sam pair up some of the world’s finest chocolates with pale ales, wines and even whisky.

Sam started out working for renowned chocolatier Paul A Young and moved on to Rococo Chocolates. He set up a successful series of pairings and tastings, highlighting chocolate’s key flavour links in classic combinations with wine and whisky and more innovative pairings with meat, cheese, tequila and even insects. He works closely with chefs across the country to inspire them in all things cacao.

Tickets cost £25, with all proceeds going towards the creation of the new community centre at St Mary’s Church. The rooms at the back of the church are used regularly by Hackney Migrant Centre, Hackney Food Bank and the Winter Night Shelter but space is limited and a new centre will enable the church to expand its outreach and offer improved facilities for the whole community.
