Chocolate and Spirits Pairing at Éclat

Freaked out by the early-April sprint toward the 90 degree mark here in the Philly area and dreaming of something that recalls cooler days? Or perhaps just hungry and thirsty for something delicious but out of the ordinary, maybe even a little challenging to established expectations?

If your answer is yes on at least one if not both counts, then please come and join me for a special event at Éclat Chocolate in West Chester, PA, on the evening of Thursday, April 29, 2010, when Éclat owner and chocolatier Chris Curtin and I will lead a guided chocolate and spirits tasting.

Chris will present a selection of his signature chocolates and truffles, and maybe even dream up something unique for the evening. And I'll be pouring and discussing an international variety of spirits, paired to each of Chris' creations, including:

  • Calvados from Christian Drouin's estate, Coeur de Lion
  • Cognac from the Juillac-le-Coq-based estate of Jean Fillioux
  • Single Malt Scotch from the Orkney Islands
  • Small batch Kentucky Bourbon

The cost for the event is $55 per/person, all inclusive. Reservations can be made by calling the good people at Éclat at 610-692-5206.

I hope to see you there.
