Unique virtual pairing experiences:
At Delysia’s Virtual Chocolate Pairing Experience, participants will broaden their culinary palate as they explore the dimensional flavors that chocolate and cheese bring out in each other with our systematic, immersive approach to tasting. Our pairing experiences are live virtual events hosted on Zoom and personally facilitated by our award-winning chocolatier and owner, Nicole Patel.
Indulge in our newest chocolate confections crafted to pair perfectly with the flavors of cheese. Showcasing our range of creativity, be the first to discover these flavors only available in our expertly guided virtual events. Learn how to pair cheese with a selection of chocolate truffles, steps to properly taste chocolate, and techniques for savoring cheese and chocolate together in this exclusive tasting experience. All chocolate truffles are expertly handcrafted in our Culinary Center and conveniently shipped to your door. Join us from the comfort of your home to discover the art of savoring cheese and chocolate together.
Turn your experience into a date night by selecting our ‘Tasting for 2’ package option, with two sets of 9-piece truffles included and an assortment of three ½ lb cheese samples from iGourmet.
Our virtual chocolate pairing experiences typically last 45 minutes, followed by a 15 minute Q&A session. Our chocolatier loves answering questions from participants and tailoring each experience to your interests, so ask your questions at any point during a tasting.
Reserve your exclusive seat:
Tickets must be purchased by the evening of December 10 to allow us ample time to ship the chocolates and cheeses to your doorstep via FedEx expedited shipping.
Upon purchasing a ticket, an emailed receipt and ticket containing the video conferencing link will be sent to your inbox. When making a purchase for the first time, we recommend establishing an account in order to easily view upcoming event reservations. At least 24 hours before the virtual tasting, a Google Calendar invitation containing the video conferencing link will be sent to your inbox.
Two tasting package options are available for this pairing event. Select between a single set for one or a package designed for two to indulge.
For orders that requested shipment, chocolate and cheese will be sent as two separate packages. The chocolates will ship directly from Delysia Chocolatier to your door via FedEx expedited shipping. The cheese will ship directly from iGourmet. If curbside is selected, both the cheese and chocolates will be available for pickup directly from Delysia Chocolatier’s Culinary Center during our regular curbside hours.
New experiences are released on our online shop at least 4 weeks before the tasting date and seats can be reserved as soon as the tickets become available for purchase. Every order is handcrafted and made fresh, so your chocolates are shipped within two weeks of the tasting date. You will receive an email with a FedEx tracking number once your truffles have been shipped so you can easily follow the package until it arrives at your home.
Tickets to multiple virtual tastings can be purchased at the same time, as long as those tastings are no more than 2 weeks apart. If the virtual tastings are more than two weeks apart, please place separate orders as your order will need to ship separately, since chocolates are made fresh for each tasting.

Prepare for the virtual tasting experience:
Once the chocolates arrive, please remove them from the shipping box and foil bag immediately, as they may have been shipped on ice. Store in your refrigerator or a cool dry place until the tasting, bringing them to room temperature at least 30 minutes before the virtual experience. Have a glass of water or bowl of coffee beans alongside you to cleanse your palate between truffles and bites of cheese..
Store the cheeses in the refrigerator until the tasting, removing them 90 minutes before to bring them to room temperature. The fat molecules in cheeses relax when they are warm, thereby amplifying the complex flavors.
