I'm on a journey to explore the world of American craft chocolate

Private Chocolate-Tasting Events

Let’s have a chocolate party! For the chocolate lover in all of us, I offer private tasting events in NYC for 10 to 30 people. Join me for discussion, comparison and banter as I lead your group through an hour and a half of pure chocolatey goodness.  

These events are perfect for company team-building, holiday parties, and more.

The best part: I come to you! I’ll bring the chocolate and any pairings, and you can relax, taste, and enjoy.

Here are a few of my most popular options, but I’m happy to tailor something to fit your needs.

  • Chocolate 101! Guided 1.5-hour tasting of 5 delicious American craft chocolates. Compare and contrast the craft chocolate bars and their industrial counterparts as you sharpen your palate and discover the subtle differences.

 

  • Beer and Chocolate! Guided 1.5-hour tasting pairing 5 craft chocolate bars with their hoppy counterparts. Experience how stouts, porters, and even IPAs can pull out chocolate flavor notes and vice versa! 

 

  • Cheese and Chocolate! Because who doesn’t love cheese? Guided 1.5-hour tasting pairing 5 craft chocolate bars with 5 delicious cheese options. A classic pairing for a truly unusual experience. 

All tastings have a 10-person minimum and include 5 chocolate samples for each guest, as well as any pairing options. I also offer the option to personalize your event with gift bags for your guests, custom chocolates, and more.

Testimonials

Megan Giller can talk about chocolate, chocolate makers, and chocolate processes for hours, and it’s completely fascinating. She has a keen understanding of how to describe everything about chocolate as well as how to keep the discussion engaging, and is the perfect person to lead an expert or a novice through a chocolate tasting.
— Ethan Lercher, Director of Events, Bryant Park
Megan not only shares her extensive knowledge but also introduces us to a fantastic array of craft chocolate which always lead the group into the most interesting and passionate conversations. The growing bean-to-bar movement is fascinating and this is the most delicious way to learn about it!
— Genevieve Leloup
A great evening! Interesting bars I would never find on my own paired with witty banter and new [chocolate-loving] friends. What could be better?
— Kim Wilson, Cocoa Future
