Grab your friends as we are headed off to Boston for a fun filled day of chocolate and wine!
First stop of the day is The Kitchen which is located in the Boston Public Market. We will be doing a
Taza Chocolate Truffle making class! First, our Taza chocolate chef will teach you how to make dark
chocolate ganache from scratch using stone ground chocolate and farm-fresh cream. You'll work in teams to
create a pot of hot ganache and dip bread and cheese into this delicious treat (it's like fondue). And last, you
will roll decadent dark chocolate truffles with chilled dark Taza ganache and dip them in different toppings. At
the end, you will have some truffles to take home with you!
After the class, spend some free-time exploring The Boston Public Market. It’s an indoor, year-round
marketplace where residents and visitors can find fresh, seasonal food from 40 New England farmers, fishers,
and food entrepreneurs. Grab some lunch or bring home some food from one of the many vendors.
Next stop of the day is Boston Winery. Boston Winery prides itself on creating craft wines that are entirely
produced by hand from harvest to bottle. Today, we will sample wines and have a tour of the winery.
On the way home, we will stop at Hebert Candies. Fredrick Hebert opened the store over a century ago
and the store is still committed to the same passion for handcrafted candies that he introduced back then.
Every single creation is made in small batches. Be sure to stock up on your favorites!
