This Kohler Event is a Chocolate Lover’s Dream

Celebrate all things chocolate at this decadent event presented by Destination Kohler.

Chocolate devotees, we have delicious news.

The weekend of Friday, Feb. 16, through Sunday, Feb. 18, marks Destination Kohler’s sixth annual In Celebration of Chocolate, a cocoa-centric extravaganza in Kohler, Wisconsin, that includes a variety of chocolate-themed demonstrations, tastings and meals designed by the resort’s culinary experts. 

This means a cheese and chocolate pairing, five-course tasting dinner and the opportunity to drop a chocolate orb of your own creation into hot milk – yes, the kind of DIY hot chocolate you’ve only seen on Instagram.

Chef Jerome Ducrocq from the Venetian Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas and two classically-trained French pastry chefs, including Kohler’s Executive Pastry Chef Nicholas Blouin, will be presenting a variety of events that demonstrate the intricacy and versatility of chocolate. 

In Celebration of Chocolate kicks off Friday at 4 p.m. with a chocolate and spirits pairing, followed by the five-course “In Celebration of Chocolate Wine Dinner” at The American Club’s Great Lakes Ballroom.

In addition to the cheese and chocolate pairing and chocolate orb demonstration, Saturday’s highlights include a “Wake Up to Chocolate & Bubbles” breakfast, chocolate-inspired lunch and demonstration on how to make both a traditional and unique tiramisu.

The weekend wraps up Sunday with a “Chocolate Lovers’ Brunch” in The Wisconsin Room at The American Club.

In Celebration of Chocolate presents such a broad range of exciting events that I would say it has something for all tastes and interests,” said Destination Kohler Special Events Manager Micha Sims. “…[The event] blends learning and fun throughout the weekend and engages not only the taste buds but also creativity.”
