Los Angeles Coffee Festival Sensory Experience

Cacao & Chocolate Sensory Experience

Posted by Emily Walden on

Prepare for a sensory maze containing a series of unique experiences and discover flavors designed to test your senses to the max.

The Sensory Experience is fully immersive. After a brief meditation to focus the mind and enhance the olfactory and gustatory connection, she will guide you through a series of aromatic and tasting encounters designed to expand perception of flavor.
You'll learn how to identify different flavor profiles and you'll learns secrets toworking with chocolate that you can do at home that you didn't think was possible such as smoking and infusing cacao in food.  

Due to time constraints and turnout of event, some attendees might not be able to receive the hands-on experience.  It is advised to attend both events as information covered in Part 1 is a continuation to Part 2.  . 

Attendees will have the opportunity to explore this theme by tapping into their senses.  Can you tell the difference between cacao %?  What is the difference between bean type and how will fat affect the flavor of your product?  What is Mexican Chocolate vs Conventional Chocolate that is used by 99% of the world? How is the meltability factor and flavor different?  Can you tell the difference between varietal of nibs?  Lastly, how do you make a savory dish with chocolate besides just a mole?  All these topics will be explored so come for a fast and wild ride for a sensory overload of chocolate and cacao.
