Could you live in a world without chocolate? Did you grow up daydreaming about winning the Willy Wonka Golden Ticket and tasting the finest truffles and pralines? Are you looking for a very special gift idea for the chocoholics in your life?
Chocolate lovers, rejoice! To celebrate the world-class talent of Sydney’s finest chocolate artisans, Mytinerary is inviting you to a special “round-the-world” chocolate tour as part of the Sydney International Food Festival.
Take your tastebuds on a gourmet journey like no other and join us on a fabulous exploration of “Planet Cacao” as we focus on a different continent every Saturday in October:
Saturday 9 October: Americas (10am-4pm)
Saturday 16 October: Europe (10am-4pm)
Saturday 23 October: Africa (10am-4pm)
Saturday 30 October: Australasia (10am-4pm)
Not available on these dates? Visit our regular "Ultimate Artisan Chocolate Tour" page for additional dates this summer.
This one-day deluxe tour will take you from the lowlands of Mexico and Central America to the lush plantations of Madagascar, by way of Marie-Antoinette’s boudoir in Versailles and Johannes Van Houten’s factory in Amsterdam.
Discover the rich history of cacao discovery and cacao trade. Hear about the religious and ritual significance of chocolate for the early Mayan and Aztec civilizations. Learn about the different steps of the chocolate-making process, from “bean to bar”. Find out how chocolate conquered Europe in the Renaissance and became the “drink of kings, and king of drinks”.
Mingle with like-minded foodies and interact with some of Sydney’s most talented chocolate artisans, who will share with you their passion for chocolate and tell you about their personal approach to chocolate making.
Most importantly, get ready for a chocolate tasting extravaganza! In addition to your morning coffee and chocolate macarons, you’ll taste different sorts of hot chocolates from each continent, some inspired by antique Aztec recipes, others featuring pure “single origin” cacao beans from the best plantations in the world.
You’ll also taste some of the finest chocolate bonbons and truffles in your life, with several pieces for you to try at each of our chocolate stops. Think dark chocolate ganache with Thai basil, truffles with French Champagne and milk chocolate with Mexican chilli. Last but not least, you’ll enjoy a delicious tasting plate featuring among other delicacies a handmade chocolate mousse.
And for a welcome savoury break, you’ll be treated to a sumptuous lunch at a Sydney favourite. Each Saturday, the restaurant will be different, in line with the continental “theme du jour”. Icing on the cake, matching wines from each continent will also be served (eg wines from Argentina or Chile on the “American” day, wines from South Africa on the “African” day, etc).
