I want people to experience the fun of chocolate tasting
Rhinebeck, NY (PRWEB) November 9, 2008
Oliver Kita (http://www.oliverkita.com/chocolate_tasting_kit.html)
has created a gourmet Chocolate Tasting Party Kit, beautifully boxed and wrapped for the holidays. "I want people to experience the fun of chocolate tasting," said Oliver Kita, Chocolatier. The party kit, enough for four people, includes six signature boxes containing tasting samples that are all Valrhona single origin chocolates, extra samplings of single origin ganaches, and chocolate tasting score cards, all wrapped in a custom chemise tailored coral-colored gift box.
Said Kita, "The idea is to carefully sample and taste bits of chocolate, trying to determine the flavors. What do you taste first? What is the middle note? The lasting aftertaste? I provide a step-by-step guide."
Friends and family are invited to compare comments with each other. There are no right or wrong answers. "This is perfect after dinner entertainment for the holidays," added Kita.
Each of four boxes contains chocolate tasting squares from one of four different countries: Madagascar, Venezuela, Dominican Republic, and Ecuador. There are 12 squares of chocolate, four each of three different percentages. Two additional boxes contain single origin ganaches that are to be enjoyed as part of the experience, but are not part of the The Chocolate Tasting Party Kit.
All of the chocolates in the Tasting Kit are handmade. Kita is an artisan chocolatier. And the game is his creation. He also includes his personal comments on each of the chocolate tasting squares.
The OliverKita.com website http://www.oliverkita/thanksgiving.html) highlights other new chocolate creations, such as holiday chocolate wreaths, gourmet traveling hot chocolate, and seasonal bon bons. Kita also has Corporate Collection, Christmas Collection, plus organic (http://www.oliverkita.com/organic.html) for those who not only want the purest of chocolate and ingredients, but also chocolates that are the result of fair trade.
