Chocolate tasting led by Tracey Chapman on 5th March
Can you taste apricots? Brazil nuts? Caramel? We had great fun tantalising our taste buds with delicious chocolate at our recent tasting event. We learnt how craft chocolate is made, what makes it different from industrial chocolate and how to taste using all of our senses. Members commented that it was a real eye-opener actually to focus on a product that you might otherwise just gobble up without much consideration of its complexity, and also to get a sense of how quality makes itself felt on your taste buds!
Date and time: Sun, 7 April 2019 from 1 p.m.
Venue: The Bath Brew House, 14 James Street West, Bath BA1 2BX
Free (food and drink available for purchase)
Alumni, current students at Oxford, their families and friends are invited to watch the 165th Men's and the 74th Women's Boat Races.

Christophe Fricker offered a hands-on workshop on these questions for both beginners and language connoisseurs.
