We’re hoping to have another forum members’ blend made in time for Chocolate Week in October. I’d like to try and choose based on some real tasting this year, so I’m thinking of organising a tasting session one evening in the 3rd or 4th week of September, at our regular Contented Vine venue in Pimlico, London.

Before I go ahead and book it, I wanted to check if enough people might be interested and able to make it. There would be a small cover charge of £5 to cover costs of the room and make sure the attendees are really interested, but you should get your money’s worth in the chocolate we’ll sample.

Thanks,

Martin

Please post here in the next week or so and we’ll decide if we have enough interested parties – I think we need about 10 of us to make it worth while.

As this hasn’t happened for the end of September, would anyone be interested in attending the event during Chocolate Week on afternoon? There won’t be any charge as we have the venue for the week, but we are collecting donations for ‘Restaurants against hunger’ for the afternoon events during the week. Please post or email asap if interested.

During chocolate week we made a few blends and sampled. I think Martin might write an article about this event in the pod section.
