The history and culture surrounding chocolate has become an art-form that is the epitome of refinement and the height of luxury. Learning to taste chocolate and appreciate its complexity requires a finesse that comes with years of practice.
This tour is a chance to discover some of Brisbane’s best chocolatiers and gain insight into their craft. You’ll learn about how chocolate is produced, from a bean on the cacao tree through to the hands of the chocolate makers; and the terminology used by industry experts to describe the taste, smell, and forms of chocolate.
You’ll be able to sample the chocolates at each venue you visit, where you will also learn the elements of a proper chocolate tasting; the different cacao percentages, and how they affect the taste. Discounts on purchases are also available at a number of the venues.
You will visit a number of venues around the city, with a break in between. The tour price includes the sit-down break, and all chocolate tastings on the day.
There will be some walking on the day, so please wear comfortable shoes, bring an umbrella if the weather calls for it and be sure to bring a bottle of water to replenish yourself between venues.
This tour cannot accommodate Coeliac/gluten-free or dairy-free requirements. Please advise your dietary requirements when booking.
