Speaking and experiential events:

Marc doesn't simply come along and talk. He's defined three core Chocolate tasting events that focus on much more than simply eating your way through a box of chocolates.

Chocolate – Nature’s original Perfumery.

Drawing on the 350+ sensorial flavour compounds in chocolate, this event looks at the complexity of taste and smell. It explores the parallels of both the craftsmanship of Haute Perfumery and Haute Chocolaterie. This event is perfect for those who have an acute “pallet and nose”, for those who enjoy a more refined and educational angle.

Curiosity of Chocolate.

Demarquette are fortunate to stock rare and often unique products, which defy conventional ways of interpreting chocolate. This event looks at the variety of cacaos out there that the big brands have no access to due to their rarity.
’Curiosity of Chocolate’ reviews the art of chocolate making and how some results that are outside the norms are so tantalising. Here you'll experience head turning and lip-smacking creations that defy convention!

Chocolate Spirit!

An event fuelled with passion and associations with the very best of pure alcohols from around the world. Parallels in craft and attention to detail are drawn and explored, but also how both the beverages and chocolates can complement each other. Marc peels away the layers of flavour and complexity to enjoy the symbiosis of chocolate and distilled alcohols.

Discover the world of chocolate spirit! Note that this event involves tasting alcohol!
