Chocolate and wine - the ultimate pairing! This class has two delicious parts. First, the Taza chocolate chef will join forces with the experts at the Massachusetts Wine Shop to lead the group through a mini wine and chocolate pairing class. Taste all the most popular Taza chocolate flavors of all intensity levels paired expertly with three local Massachusetts-grown wines. We'll also have Somerville Bread Co bread and Appleton Farms cheese to ensure that your tastebuds leave satisfied.
Then, we'll make decadent dark chocolate truffles by hand with the talented chocolate chefs at Taza Chocolate, the Boston Public Market's local chocolatier. You'll sip on local wines while you work (why not?).
We have THREE different classes to satisfy all your wildest cravings & let you share a sweet moment with friends, family or a significant other making chocolate side-by-side.

At Taza Chocolate we make stone ground, organic chocolate. Cacao is so complex in flavor that we want to let it shout loud and proud. That is why we do less to bring you more. We stone grind cacao beans into perfectly unrefined, minimally processed chocolate with bold flavor and texture, unlike anything you have ever tasted. Taza founder Alex Whitmore took his first bite of stone ground chocolate while traveling in Oaxaca, Mexico. He was so inspired by the rustic intensity that he decided to create a chocolate factory back home in Somerville, MA. Alex apprenticed under a molinero in Oaxaca to learn how to hand-carve granite mill stones to make a new kind of American chocolate that is simply crafted, but seriously good. To source the best cacao for Taza Chocolate, we cultivate direct relationships with growers and pay a premium over the Fair Trade price. We pioneered the first third-party certified Direct Trade cacao sourcing program in the U.S., to ensure transparency and fairness for all.
At the Taza Chocolate Bar, located in the Boston Public Market, visitors can watch as cacao is
ground on-site in stone mills to craft fresh hot and iced chocolate drinks. Taza’s full product line
is also available for purchase. In addition to our Direct Trade Cacao Certification, Taza is Certified USDA Organic, Non-GMO Project Verified, Certified Gluten Free, and OU Kosher Pareve. Taza Chocolate is also dairy free, soy free and vegan.
