                                                                                        How to taste chocolate

The ‘Chocolate Tasting Ritual’ allows to experience the full range of chocolate delights with the 5 senses: sight, touch, hearing, smell and taste. Discover the richness of a chocolate tasting experience.

Step 1 - LOOK

 

By LOOKING at the appearance of the chocolate we pay attention to color, the intensity (strong or weak) and the hue (shade of red/mahogany, yellow, grey, violet…)

· Put the chocolate on a well lit white paper or tablecloth to look at its appearance.

 

Step 2 - TOUCH

                   

 

By TOUCHING the chocolate you pay attention to how it feels in your hand. Feel for the finger-sensitivity (soft or hard), melt-in-hand (slow or fast) and the hardness. This is just before breaking the chocolate you feel for his resistance (bends or breaks).

· Close your eyes to concentrate!

· Rub the chocolate between both fingers to assess its finger-sensitivity.

· Press between your fingers for the melting rate.

· Bend the chocolate to feel the resistance, and thus hardness.

                                                                          
 

Step 3 - LISTEN

                  

 

 

When it breaks you LISTEN to the sound or snap (clear or dull).

· With your eyes still closed, bring the chocolate close to your ear and snap it.

Step 4 - SMELL

 

By SMELLING the chocolate you can discover the bouquet of aromatic notes and the complexity (low, medium or high) & also the intensity (strong or weak) of it.

· Take the chocolate in one hand and rub the chocolate.

· Bring it to your nose and cup.

· Then sniff three times.

· In-between chocolates, smell your own body perfume to neutralize the nose.

· 

Step 5 - TASTE

 

When TASTING you will discover the basic notes, aromatic notes & mouthfeel of the chocolate.

· Pinch your nose: bite and let melt, discover the basic tastes.

· Release your nose and take a deep breath: focus on the aromatic notes.

· Move the chocolate against your palate, chew: explore the mouthfeel.

· In-between chocolates, drink water to neutralize your palate.
