Last week I had a super great time at a fine chocolate tasting class. It was seriously the best, because, you know, THE CHOCOLATE. yum.
The class was held at Tony Caputo's Market & Deli in downtown Salt Lake City which was kind of cool by itself, because that place is awesome and I've never been there before, and when I got there it really made me wonder why I had never been their before. (I'm totally going back. and soon.)
We learned about cacao beans and the processes they go through to become chocolate. REAL chocolate. Real GOURMET chocolate. (Did you know that grocery store chocolate has way more vanilla beans in it that cacao beans? As in there's only about 4-14% of chocolate in chocolate. Crazy, I know.) And then we got to taste a bunch of really super delicious fantastic chocolate made from beans around the world.
Also, we got to eat this chocolate cake. I died a little because it was so good.
They gave us a special chocolate offer that we get to share with one lucky reader! yaaaaay! The special offer is that if you go to the Caputo's Chocolate website (which, by the way, carries one of the world's biggest selection of fine chocolate) and spend $25, then can you get $15 WORTH OF FREE CHOCOLATE!
And if you're wondering, "What am I going to do with that much chocolate?" let me tell you - - you will float on fluffy clouds of cacao and happiness, while simultaneously ingesting antioxidants. Because, remember, chocolate is GOOD FOR YOU. (for reals.)
