Award-winning Delysia Chocolatier will join expert cheesemonger and James Beard award-winning author of six books, Laura Werlin, for the chocolatier’s first DELIGHT virtual tasting of the new year, Cheese & Chocolate: Virtual Pairing Experience with Laura Werlin.
Werlin, a top expert on American artisanal cheese, is known for using her expertise and unique sense of humor to create interactive cheese pairing sessions. Delysia Chocolatier is delighted to team with Laura for this experience to pair two specialty foods that are rarely tasted together: cheese and chocolate. Combining Werlin’s extensive knowledge of cheese and Delysia Chocolatier’s chef- owner Nicole Patel’s expertise in infusing truffles with unique ingredients, this tasting will give attendees a chance to indulge in the handcrafted worlds of sweet and savory fine foods.
Attendees will broaden their culinary palates as they sample four unique chocolate truffles handcrafted by chocolatier Chef Patel—each created specially for this event and inspired by the country of origin of the cheese (selected by Laura Werlin) with which it will be paired.
Flavor pairings at this event:
- Turron chocolate truffle paired with Queso Leonara cheese from Spain
- Boeuf Bourguignon chocolate truffle paired with St. Andre cheese from France
- Candied butterscotch chocolate truffle paired with Ewephoria Aged cheese from Holland
- Cranberry port chocolate truffle paired with Roelli Dunbarton Blue from Wisconsin
This is a unique, national, virtual food event that is open to people living within any of the fifty states of the U.S. Each ticket includes the chocolate truffles and cheese selection, as well as a link to attend this exclusive virtual pairing experience.
