Make sure not to miss this exclusive event and unique offers for visitors attending the event and sign on our newsletter.
We arrived on Saturday at the event, and we started with a tasting of To’ak chocolate. From this company, we had the invitation, so we left the Netherlands to visit High Wycombe, and it was worth the visit.
To’ak was born in the rainforest conservation project in Ecuador, in the most storied cacao-growing region in the world. Cacao is native to Ecuador. The rare Ecuadorian cacao variety called “Nacional” traces its genetic lineage back at least 5,300 years. By the dawn of the 21st century, this famed variety was believed to be extinct.
The tasting of chocolate
We were introduced in the chocolate tasting by James le Compte the CEO of To’ak company. It was the first time in chocolate tasting in this kind of level, and it was a ‘mindful’ experience on a way that I never tasted chocolate before. The tasting goes; first, bring a piece of the chocolate to the nose and explore the aroma. Then put the piece in the mouth, avoid chewing and let it melt. Observe how the flavor evolves.
Moreover, it will unfold like a movie inside the mouth, with a cast of different characters. The chance of tasting this kind of chocolate was a unique experience, and it was impressive that every year the same tree produces a different taste of cacao, because of the influence and changes of the seasonal climate. Can be compared with wine tasting.
The taste of the cacao was fabulous. This chocolate is deeply flavored, and we never tasted this before. We also had the experience to taste the oldest a rarest cacao variety on earth with the unique emphasis of barrel aging in French oak cognac casks.
The flavor of this kind of chocolate is unique, and it was an experience how the different cognac taste unfolds in the chocolate.
