Slow Food NI Director, Taste Causeway Ambassador and TV Chef Paula McIntyre will join The Chocolate Manor’s Chief Chocolatier, Geri Martin, to take guests through an exciting journey of savoury and sweet dishes, paired with the Causeway’s finest gin and whiskey.
Guests will get to sample Basalt Gin, the Causeway’s newest distillery, and founders James Richardson and Martha Gabe will be on hand to describe their unique distilling process.
Paula will introduce guests to Slow Food, through a selection of tantalising canapes and small plates, some of which will incorporate the indulgent single origin chocolates available at The Chocolate Manor, and paired with either the Basalt Gin or Bushmills Whiskey
Guests will then explore the 5 steps to tasting chocolate, guided by chocolatier Geri, by savouring 10 sustainably sourced chocolates from across the globe, before sampling a selection of specially created gin and whiskey truffles and treats, handcrafted by The Chocolate Manor team in Castlerock.
This event is part of the Slow Food Causeway launch programme funded by Tourism NI in partnership with Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council.
