Luxury Chocolate Rehearsal Dinner in New York City
I want to make your rehearsal dinner in New York City truly memorable with the world’s most delicious chocolate!
In the comfort of your own home, at a chic restaurant, or in my favorite private event space, I'll guide you through a tasting of five bean-to-bar chocolates, and you can double the deliciousness with cheese, beer, wine, and tea pairings to match. You'll also taste delicacies like whole cacao beans and discover how they have terroir, like wine grapes.

At my private chocolate tastings, we talk a LOT about where chocolate comes from, but it’s another thing to see it for yourself. Here is a little video I made a few years ago called “From Bean to Bonbon” that illustrates this process from start to finish. The best part? I can bring fresh cacao pods and fresh cacao juice to your tasting so you can try this delicious and unique fruit for yourself!
I'm a food writer and the author of Bean-to-Bar Chocolate: America’s Craft Chocolate Revolution, and a judge at the International Chocolate Awards. My work has been published in The New York Times, Slate, Zagat, and Food & Wine, and my blog Chocolate Noise was a 2016 Saveur Food Blog Awards finalist. I love sharing and tasting chocolate with people, and I've been hosting luxury private tastings for almost three years. There's no better way to celebrate love than with chocolate, and I can't wait to taste delicious bars and truffles with you!
