Ghirardelli Chocolate Tasting: Party Planning Tips | Pottery Barn

Learn some great party planning tips as Melinda Winter of Ghirardelli Chocolate Company shows us how to throw a fabulous chocolate tasting party. Serving chocolate deserts for your friends is incredibly easy with the help of Ghirardelli.

Ghirardelli Chocolate Company is the longest continuously operating chocolate manufacturer in the United States. It is located in San Francisco’s famous Ghirardelli Square. If you’re planning a chocolate tasting party, all you need is some quality Ghirardelli dark chocolate, white chocolate, and milk chocolate to give your guests a variety of flavors.

To serve the chocolate, simply break up each bar into small pieces and arrange them on a decorative plate. Make sure to add garnishes like nuts, fruit, or fresh flowers. When you begin the tasting, make sure to start with white chocolate, then milk chocolate, and save the dark chocolate for last. Cleanse your palate in between tastes with water and crackers.

Use your senses to examine the quality of the chocolate, but don’t forget to enjoy the most important part—the taste!
