How gifting with Breakaway Experiences works:
Meet the chocolate makers and connoisseurs of Montreal, including a chocolatier, a Mexican retailer and chef. You'll taste at least nine types of chocolates along the way. Stroll through the Plateau and Mile-End as you learn about the Mesoamerican and colonial origins of chocolate, its industrial production and the bean-to-bar movement. You’ll have sweet tastings at each stop, and get to spend some time chatting with the owners about the subtleties of high-quality chocolate. This delicious confectionery experience begins when you meet your local and friendly chocolate-loving guide at a chocolate factory, a bean-to-bar chocolate maker's production site. You’ll learn about their chocolate making process and listen to the owner's personal story, all the while tasting three chocolates, made mostly with single-origin beans. Next, you’ll walk to a small Mexican restaurant in the the Mile-End neighborhood where you’ll enjoy a light savory chocolate-based meal with mole tamales, agues frescas and traditional Mexican chocolate while learning about of the role of chocolate in Mesoamerica during the Colonial period. You’ll have the opportunity to meet the owner and chef of the restaurant and peruse her privately imported Mexican products. The tour continues through the Mile-End with a quick stop at a historic site to learn about the history of the neighborhood. From the Mile-End, you’ll head over to Montreal’s hippest neighbourhood, Mile-Ex, for a tasting of two cocktails or virgin cocktails. The tour wraps up at a bean-to-bar boutique for a cocoa drink and a tasting of chocolate confections made with single origin chocolate. You’ll taste three very different chocolates with an explanation of how to sample them and a tasting wheel to help with the vocabulary for chocolate tasting.
