18th May 2011 Meet- Chocolate tasting (&AGM)!

Yes ladies, it’s the meeting you’ve all been waiting for!  Just in case you missed out on chocolate at Easter we have a treat for you at our next meeting! The WI has quite a history of supporting Fairtrade products so we have invited David from Divine Chocolate to come along to talk about all things chocolatey.  Divine was the first ever Fairtrade Chocolate bar to be launched into the UK confectionery market with a co-operative of cocoa farmers owning shares in the company. You can find out more about there work here:

He’ll give us a quick history of chocolate, the issues surrounding Fairtrade, how Divine was formed as a company and what they do, and then we will have a lesson in how to taste chocolate. Apparently it is as complex as wine tasting so prepare to have your tastebuds tickled! There will be a chance to sample some chocolate and buy some chocolate, as well as learn how to make truffles. Look forward to seeing you there for a truly divine evening!

*** We’ve also got our AGM that evening, so if members would like to come along at the earlier time of 7PM, or anyone else interested in our review of the year!  Although just so you know only members can vote on our resolutions for the year ***
