Barbie Van Horn
I'm a chocolate enthusiast, connoisseur, certifiable judge, and recipe creator.
Creating beautiful tasting, pairing, and palate training experiences to educate, surprise, and delight is what I love to do.
Currently I live in Seattle with my love Rog. Our sweet girl just happens to enjoy chocolate too.
I'm a long term real estate investor, advocate of small business (because I owned one and understand the challenges), and I'm a corporate girl currently working in the corporate world for a Fortune 500 Company.
And, yes I do start most mornings with a chocolate tasting, before breakfast while my palate is fresh.
Finding Fine Chocolate
Finding Fine Chocolate is my journey to find well crafted fine chocolate, sharpen tasting palates, create pairings and recipes, and explore the people and places that bring us craft and artisan chocolate.
It's is about slowing down, relaxing, and focusing on your sense of taste to discover the diverse aromas, flavors, and textures found in craft chocolate.
It's about exploring, finding your favorites, getting to know yourself and your palate a little better with each tasting or pairing.
It's about meeting the people behind all phases of chocolate from the cacao tree to the chocolate bar.
It is about creating beautiful experiences with fine, craft, & artisan chocolate.
