During one-hour sessions, pupils explore the flavour and creation of chocolate, touching upon the cacao beans from different regions, the effect of different percentages of cocoa, and the production of chocolate. Students then sample cocoas of varied origin and composition culled from numerous manufacturers before tasting Xoxolat's blended bars, such as dark chocolate brimming with sea salt and peppercorns, sour cherry chile, maple-caramelized bacon with espresso, and many others. A schedule of class times is available here.
