Cacao - Bar or Bottle?

Explore delightful formulations of the fruit of the cacao tree, from bean-to-bar applications you know to the cutting edge of cacao-distillates-in-a-bottle. 
Discover with us Pacari Chocolate, a premium single-origin, organic chocolate made from the finest beans in Ecuador; greet palate intoxicator Daniel Sklaar from Fine & Raw, making raw chocolate in small batches with the finest quality cacao beans, rich in antioxidants; and meet Daniel Preston from Cacao Prieto, the NY transplant descended from generations of Spanish distillers living in the Dominican Republic.

This event is produced by Migration of Senses. Pacari and Fine & Raw chocolates will be paired with wines and spirits specially selected by the gracious hosts, Union Square Wines and Spirits
Proceeds from this event will benefit the programs and activities of not-for-profit Slow Food NYC, including the Urban Harvest programs of good food education for NYC kids.
