Classic Apéritifs and Chocolate with Velveteen Chocolate

  • Findlay Kitchen 1719 Elm Street Cincinnati, OH, 45202 United States (map)

There is a wonderful world beyond the typical wine and chocolate pairings. Classic aperitifs make lovely partners with chocolate, especially local, small batch creations by Velveteen Chocolate. Think bubbles and liqueurs—chilled or on the rocks—for a light and refreshing pre-dinner experience, perfectly paired with delicious handcrafted chocolates. You'll expand your chocolate horizons, try interesting flavor combinations, and create the perfect beginning to your evening in OTR. Your experience includes three pairings.

This event is great for groups, chocolate enthusiasts, and those who are looking for a different kind of date night. After the event, make a night of it and enjoy dinner out at one of the many great restaurants in OTR. Your host is happy to provide restaurant suggestions.

Your host: Sherri Prentiss, French-trained chocolatier and founder of Cincinnati-based Velveteen Chocolate. Her mission is to deepen our connection to chocolate and to each other. Visit her website at and see her creations on Facebook and Instagram at @velveteenchoco.
