This Dark-Chocolate Cacao Dreams Salon will feature a vertical tasting-flight that will intrigue and educate:
A) straight wild-harvested dark chocolate (no chaser) tasting -- the C-spot founder Mark Christian will present an 8-12 minute A/V presentation on the new era of craft chocolate scene making the move in what he dubs "a retro-revolution (going back to its roots as a pure flavor powerhouse as well as taken in its truer settings… the stuff of pre-Columbian warriors, state ceremonies, aristocratic Euro parties, modern day body temple raves, choc-cannabis medibles, et.al.)," plus some info on Landmark Wild Chocolate Reserve & the chocolate itself;
B) Same dark chocolate listed above in 'A' paired with a very special boutique bourbon;
C) Bobbie Lloyd of Magnolia Bakery will confect a piece de resistance / coup de grace dessert with same dark chocolate.
And in between each chocolate sampling, we'll feature original entertainment to cleanse the palate. including an original chocolate-inspired poem from critically-acclaimed poet Steve Dalachinsky, new music from "Afro-Amerciana" Queen Esther and singer-songwriter Dusty Wright, a special "chocolate book" reading and new chocolate sculptures by artist Heide Hatry, and the world premiere of a new short classical piece by composter Steve Holtje.
Join us from 7-9 pm on May 23rd at The Red Room at KGB bar in NYC.
