Meet Your Maker: Patric Chocolate Tasting Tonight 5-7pm

We’re thrilled to welcome craft chocolatier Alan McClure to Provisions tonight for a special tasting of his single origin bean-to-bar chocolates. Last year in the New Yorker, local Brooklyn chocolatier Rick Mast compared Patric’s 70% Madagascar Sambirano Valley bar not to a sunny day (which we could use one right about now) but to Mr. Darcy in “Pride and Prejudice,” by Jane Austen:

Ever thought, “Who in their right mind would spend that much on chocolate?” Give it a chance, Elizabeth; Mr. Darcy waits to be unwrapped. Even the most to-the-manor-born chocolate is relatively inexpensive compared to a bottle of wine, and just as transporting. Allow yourself Patric’s seventy-per-cent cacao bar from the Sambirano Valley, in Madagascar. Inside, you will find perhaps the most refined chocolate of the micro-batch scene. Cherry and plum will knock you on your rear in surprise.

Try the chocolate, then cross the street to Greenlight Books and buy the book!

Fine & Raw Chocolates

Fine & Raw bonbons

Tonight from 5-7 pm we welcome Daniel Sklaar from Brooklyn-based Fine & Raw chocolates for a chocolate tasting at Provisions.

Sweetened with agave nectar, Fine & Raw chocolates are made without heating the chocolate past 118F degrees. The ganache filling is sweetened with agave nectar giving them a low glycemic index and coconut oil provides richness. Velvety, dense and intense, they melt in your mouth. And, in summer, on your kitchen counter. So store them in the refrigerator lest your bonbons end up as hot chocolate.
