WINE & CHOCOLATE TASTING WITH CHEF JACQUES TORRES
AYZA WEST VILLAGE – FEBRUARY 2014
Nothing is as good as marrying wine and chocolate. If you have the right wine to complement the right chocolate, ‘wine and chocolate’ can be a match made in heaven. This is true whether you are pairing a delicate white chocolate, or a lively dark chocolate with wine.
For the 2nd time, Mr. Chocolate, Chef Jacques Torres and I had paired specially chosen wines and chocolate for the biggest tasting of the year; WINE & CHOCOLATE TASTING Event, which took place at AYZA WEST VILLAGE on FEBRUARY 9, 2014.
