Explore the world of chocolate at this tasting with D.C.’s own chocolate aficionado and owner of Biagio Fine
Chocolate (described by the Washington Post as “a chocoholic’s shrine”), Biagio Abbatiello, and internationally acclaimed chocolate maker, Steve Devries, who has been labeled “the Einstein of chocolate” for his painstaking research into every aspect of handcrafting fine chocolates. With these experts, you’ll savor your way through the history, personalities, and flavors behind this alluring treat that the ancient Maya and Aztecs called “The Elixir of the Gods.” You’ll learn how chocolates are made step-by-step, beginning with the raising and harvesting of cacao beans, and discover that fine chocolate is truly an agricultural rather than an industrial product. Finally, you’ll taste a selection of the world’s finest chocolates! Bring your sweet tooth, a loved one, and a sense of culinary adventure to the sweetest event of the National Geographic Live spring season.
