March Chocolate Tasting Dinner

If you lived in a cave or under a rock during the first half of February, you may not have known that the Eclipse Chocolat Team was throwing a fancy-pants dinner for Valentine's Day. As it turns out, the shindig was a wild success and sold out (at 90 reservations!) a whole two weeks prior to the actual holiday.

Most of the attendees seemed pretty excited about it, what with five courses to enjoy and all, and many asked when another such dinner would be planned. Well wait no more!

So we're giving it another go. Friday, March 28th at 7 and 9pm, we will be hosting another lucky 48 people for a fabulous tour of everything chocolate. From appetiser to dessert, RSVP ASAP to enjoy five courses of cocoa-concoctions, only one of which is actually a sweet course.

The first dinner was repeated for a second evening so we served 90 people in total. This dinner will not be repeated, so we expect it to sell out very quickly. We will be announcing the details in the upcoming two weeks, but call (619.578.2984) or email (info@eclipsechocolat.com) very soon to reserve your space. The cost will be $30 per person and all guests will enjoy 10% off retail chocolate for that evening.

Incidentally, did anyone out there reading this actually attend the dinner? There's got a be a few of you! If so, I'd love a few replies to this post as testimonials. Who wants to take my word for it anyway!

I was lucky enough to attend the Valentine's Day dinner. I was amazed at the variety and combinations of flavors in each dish. It was fabulous! I would have expected to pay much more for a meal of this caliber. Highly recommended.

Will, it was a great time! The crepe was by far my favorite, and my husband raved about the brie pastry for days afterwards. Hope you have a good turn out for this next one!

I was lucky enough to attend the Valentines day feast. amazing only begins to describe it. I had no idea what to expect and therefore had expectations no where near what it all actually turned out to be. an amazing blend of flavors, textures and truly unique foods beyond anything I'd had before. the crepe turned out to be my absolute favorite and, once tasted, it was hard to leave enough for my date to enjoy as well. :)

kudos and then some.

This was an amazing night...something out of Willy Wonka or a scene from the movie Chocolat! Every course was made to perfection and the small plates allowed us to gobble up every bite without looking like complete pigs. We all argued over which was the best course and ultimately couldn't really make up our minds. They were all delightful! And the whole experience was super fun. Will and others waited on us chatted with us and were very kind. We brought our own wine and they poured it for us, etc. It was so fun and I really hope I can make it to the March 28th dinner! Bon Apetit!
