How do Virtual Events work?

How many corporate offices have a dedicated event planner? Not many. How often are corporate employees unexpectedly thrust into event planning roles with no prior experience? Far too often.

Allow Gourmet Boutique to help you create meaningful events that are thoughtful, unique, delicious and can be delivered to participants home or office in the USA and abroad.

Elevate your corporate team building events with our Virtual, Hybrid, and In-Person experiences featuring Chocolate Tastings, Coffee and Chocolate, Tea and Chocolate, and Caviar Tasting.

Engage clients and connect teams through decadent and delicious storytelling, guided by our industry-leading educators. Our unique tasting themes include Wine, Coffee, Tea, Whiskey, Macarons, Cheese, Caviar, and more!

Our hassle-free planning process offers instant quotes, event briefings, and a small but very dedicated team of coordinators to ensure your event is not only delicious but also tailored to your specific needs and budget.

Step 1: Book your Virtual Experience!

Want to incorporate unusual and unique flavors into the tasting? Want to combine chocolate with wine, whiskey, tequila, coffee or tea for a truly sensory experience? We got you covered! Pick from one of our popular virtual tasting themes or contact us to discuss your virtual event! We'll pick a date/time that works for you.

Step 2: Tasting Kits are on the way!

All of our virtual tasting experiences include factory sealed craft chocolate bars that are shipped to the address of each recipient in the tasting. Shipping is included in the cost of the kits and international shipping is available. The kit also includes ice breaker activities, and a $10 gift voucher to Gourmet Boutique.

Step 3: Sit Back and Enjoy!

The event 45-60 minutes engages the audience with superb storytelling about the makers, the industry, and the art of "flavor."  Get ready for a foodie adventure! From mastering the art of tasting to food travel and culture to unraveling the secrets of transparent trade, we've got you covered!
