Introducing This Week
Last weekend we brought you news of the next Craft Chocolate Takeover of Canopy Market in London's King's Cross.

We’re also delighted to announce the programme of talks and tastings taking place from October 18th - 20th. On Friday 18th October, Canopy Market will play host to a Chocolate & Wine pairing session led by wine expert Francis Percival.

Throughout the day on Saturday 19th October, you’ll have chance to take part in some fantastic workshops and meet a whole host of speakers.    Hazel Lee will be leading a Taste With Colour workshop, Dandelion’s Greg D’Alesandre will be encouraging us to take a second look at Africa as a source of cocoa and Andrew Baker is joining us to share the stories behind his recently published book, From Bean To Bar - A chocolate lover's guide to Britain.  

The philosopher and long time friend of Cocoa Runners, Julian Baggini will share his reflections on the bean to bar craft chocolate movement, and Barry Smith and the team from the Centre for the Study of the Senses at UCL will be leading an interactive workshop to look at the science behind how we taste chocolate, and much more besides…

For those joining us at King’s Cross on Sunday 20th October, we invite you to join our delicious Principles of Pairings session. At this workshop we will lift the lid on what we look for when we’re pairing chocolates with different foods and drinks. 

As ever, the market itself is free to attend and does not require a ticket, but the talks and tastings are ticketed, with prices ranging from £3 - £10 and can be bought now on our Events Directory. Please note that those at which alcohol is being served as strictly open to Over 18’s only.

We hope to see you there!

Saturday October 19th 11am - 6pm
On the Saturday, we're very excited to be joined by a host of tasters from around the chocolate world. Since Hazel last joined us to host a Taste with Colour workshop she has hosted Taste With Colour workshops around the world and we are so happy that she will be bringing this entertaining workshop back to London again.
 
Not only is Dandelion joining us to trade through the weekend, but Greg will be taking centre stage for this talk to share his experiences sourcing cacao from challenging new origins. A rare chance to see Greg speaking in the UK. As The Telegraph’s Chocolate Correspondent and Academy of Chocolate Grand Jury member, Andrew has long since been a vocal champion of the craft chocolate movement. Today he joins us to discuss his new book, sharing stories from his adventures as he goes.  

In his talk, Julian Baggini will challenge the way you think about chocolate – and how you eat it. Tasting chocolate as we go, we'll be investigating what the humble cocoa bean teaches us about the nature of experience, the good life and our responsibilities to others.  Finally on the Saturday, Barry Smith and the team from the Centre for the Study of the Senses at UCL will be leading an interactive workshop to look at the science behind how we taste chocolate, and much more besides…

 
Sunday October 20th | 11am - 6pm
On Sunday October 20th, we'll be hosting a craft chocolate tasting with a difference.  Over the years we've paired chocolate with everything from wine to cheese, gin to beer, coffee to tea and more besides.  
Here we share our tips for choosing the perfect partner for a chocolate bar, we’ll also taste some pairings of chocolate and cheese, beer, wine and more, including some counterintuitive - yet delicious - combinations!
