Verdigris Chocolate features drinking chocolates, espresso drinks, and fine chocolate bars from around the globe. Offering “everything chocolate”, Verdigris Chocolate serves exotic chocolate drinks made from rich chocolate ganaches or fine stoneground chocolate, melted and frothed to perfection. Chocolate pastries from the kitchen of Verdigris Tea Café add to the chocolate treats and chocolate bars available to satisfy the guilty pleasures of all.
Chocolate rich in its history, once known as the “food of the gods”, has undergone transformation from its use as currency by the Aztecs, to its prominence as the beverage of the elite, whether brown skinned Aztec nobles or pale skinned Jesuit clerics, to its modern history at the turn of the 19th Century when it was transformed into solid chocolate for eating. Verdigris Chocolate seeks to celebrate this richness and prominence of chocolate as a delicacy by featuring chocolates with blended flavors made from cacao from different parts of the world.
Verdigris Chocolate features monthly chocolate pairings (with wine, or beer or spices) and cooking condensed classes (which sometime focus on chocolate and other times on other cooking challenges.)
