    The Choco-locate Romance, An Evening of Fine Wine and Decadent Chocolates

    hillary — 5 years ago


    Wine and chocolate were together at last at the Choco-locate Romance event last week. Chocolate enthusiasts met up with wine connoisseurs to celebrate a match made in heaven at Rubin Art. Decadent European chocolates and fine wines all in one romantic Valentine evening? You really can have it all.

    While skipping along our chocolate path Choco-locate was happy pick up friends like Rubin Art-our destination for the evening. Their delicate hand crafted porcelain and overhead crystal chandeliers set the mood for a romantic affair in the heart of downtown Toronto. But let’s not forget about their chocolate! Rubin Art’s selection of Hungarian handmade chocolate gems created a symphony of textures and tastes that were the perfect pairing for some luxurious wines. Kristof Rubin, President of Rubin Art, walked the group through the chocolate tasting process while the wines were in the good hands of wine connoisseur, Catherine Mortimer. Catherine brought along the premium wines from Sideroad Twenty Cellars in Niagara and quickly got ‘down and dirty’ with the basics of tasting wine and awakening the senses.

'Film tells the not-so-sweet side of chocolate'

The film tells four stories – of Ron Obadia and Nadine Artemis, two raw food enthusiasts; of employees who live and work in Hershey, Pa., known as “The Sweetest Place on Earth” and more.

Chocolate is rich in phenolics, the same heart protective antioxidants found in wine. Indulgence? I call it self preservation!
