Nothing short of divine—chocolate. The event, a celebration of cacao in all its opulence, was a testament to the artistry and finesse that chocolate aficionados hold dear.
The soirée commenced with the enchanting Catherine Soulas Baron, who led us through a captivating journey into the rich tapestry of chocolate’s history. As she wove narratives of its ancient origins, traversing through royal courts to the bustling chocolate houses of yore, attendees were transported to a realm where cocoa held sway over empires and enchanted palates.
Following this historical odyssey, the spotlight turned to Marie Monmont, the visionary founder of Wildness Asia. Collaborating seamlessly with Catherine, Marie guided our esteemed guests through an interactive session, where they were given the rare opportunity to craft their own chocolates. Under Marie’s expert tutelage, the art of chocolate-making unfolded, and the room buzzed with creativity as participants molded and adorned their sweet creations.
As the evening advanced, the culmination of this indulgent escapade awaited—a meticulously curated chocolate tasting. Catherine, possessing the finesse of a chocolatier’s sommelier, led us through the nuances of flavor, texture, and aroma. Each sip of the velvety elixir, expertly prepared by Marie, became a symphony of delight as the notes of chocolate danced on the taste buds, leaving an indelible mark of indulgence.
The event, a seamless fusion of historical insight, artistic creation, and gustatory pleasure, left an indelible mark on all who were fortunate enough to partake.
