Last month I was accompanying Roger from kooked.ch to the headquarter of Lindt & Sprüngli Switzerland for a wine and chocolate tasting. Yes that’s right: Wine with chocolate. You may think this combination does not work at all, but surprisingly it does. And it’s really delicious. We have been told that chocolate is also delicious with a glass of whisky. You should definitely try it yourselves. While the chocolate was obviously sponsored by Lindt & Sprüngli Switzerland, Weinclub.com sponsored the wine. My favourite combination was the first one we tried: Lindt Excellence 70% Cacao Noir Intense with a Errazuriz Estate Series Merlot.
After the wine and chocolate tasting we made our very own champagne truffles and pralines in the Lindt Chocolateria under the guidance of Lindt’s Maître Chocolatiers. What was best: We were dressed in the authentic uniform of a Lindt Maître Chocolatier. It was fun and we created some delicious champagne truffles and pralines which we could take home afterwards.
