The Spirit of Chocolate: Hackney Coffee Company, £39

 

Join us for an unforgettable evening of delectable cocktails, artisan chocolate, and outstanding spirits.

I'm teaming up with Hackney Coffee Company as we co-host the first in a series of masterclasses celebrating the launch of its new venue & cocktail bar.

When: Thursday, 21st June 7-9pm
What: The Spirit of Chocolate: Hackney Coffee Company, £39 per person
Where: Hackney Coffee Company Winter Garden Room, 503 Hackney Rd, London E2 9ED

You’ll be welcomed with Hackney Coffee Company's signature espresso martini.  Once seated, Chef Annamarie will take you on a culinary tasting journey through 4 handpicked small-batch produced chocolates, covering the chocolate-making process from bean to bar. HCC's head bartender will be your guide to 4 world-class spirits you’ll be pairing, giving you an insight into the stories behind how they came to be made. 
 
Next we'll work in pairs to roll and coat freshly prepared ganache to create a dozen each of Chef Annamarie's Espresso Martini truffles, to take home, or to enjoy on the spot.
 
Our backdrop will be the Winter Garden room in HCC's newly renovated venue: a former Victorian brewery with endless exposed brick walls and overflowing foliage.  After the tasting, we welcome you to slip away into the cocktail bar for more intimate evening vibes and neighbourhood chat.
