Utakachofanya

Most people can name some grape varietals but not one varietal of cacao although there are many and although chocolate has twice as many flavour compounds as wine! We will learn how complex and diverse cacao is and what the bean-to-bar or craft chocolate movement is. We start at a chocolate factory and learn about cacao production and how chocolate is made plus tasting. We do this with the chocolate-maker and there is so much to learn! Next, we will walk through the Mile-End to a Mexican restaurant where we will eat a mole made with chocolate and we will talk about the history of chocolate. After that, we will continue to walk and explore and learn about the neighbourhood and its food and historical monuments. We will end up in a boutique specialized in cocktail components and accessories for a mocktail. Lastly, we will head to a boutique specialized in single origin chocolate that does confections with chocolate made by Montreal's chocolate makers. We will do a tasting in the style of a wine tasting there, looking for different notes and textures and experiencing the diversity in cacao. Guests will have some time to shop as well.

*This tour really starts at 9:45am or 12:45pm.
*We will walk 2.5km
*Please bring a reusable water bottle

I would love to take you out to learn about and taste chocolate in Montreal. I own a food tour company called 'Round Table Tours and we have been taking people out to learn about and eat chocolat for 4 years! I also did professional culinary training and I'm a certified tour guide. I have gotten to know the craft or bean-to-bar chocolate movement intimately and its actors. I want you to see it and experience the unique products made in Montreal getting international acclaim and show you the complexity and diversity of cacao. I have also written an e-food guide to Montreal with the Gazette's dining out critic and run tours about Chinatown, Jewish Food, Tea, 3rd Wave Coffee, Cocktail Bars, so I know Montreal's food scene well! You will explore chocolate with me or prize-winning chocolate-maker Daniel. We can guide in French or English.

Melissa had great connections and contacts. It was extremely exciting to meet Daniel and to see this passion and excitement of the things that are happening in Montreal and the chocolate community.

Chocolate lovers paradise. While you get to sample a lot of chocolate (no pressure to buy) by far and away the best aspect was the chocolate education. Melissa has deep knowledge of chocolate and of Montreal, and she has selected some great expert stops. There is a fair bit of walking involved between stops, and Melissa helps break that up frequently with some tour guide snippets. You will get plenty of suggestions to visit back on your own steam. You will never look at a block of chocolate the same again!

Melissa has an obvious love of Montreal and a wealth of knowledge about every nook and cranny that came through during this fun tour. We learned about every step of the process of making chocolate, as well as the history about the neighborhood and random shops. We left full of chocolate and an appreciation for the area. Highly recommend this for anyone - just be sure to wear comfortable shoes!
