Now this is an event we can really sink our teeth into.

Katey Wright and Peter Jorgensen opened Origins Chocolate Bar in River Market August 2018, after developing a love of bean-to-bar chocolate a few years earlier. The shop sells craft chocolate from Canada, the United States and Europe.

Origins is holding its first chocolate-tasting event on Thursday, Feb. 7 at 7 p.m., where they will talk about bean-to-bar chocolate and taste a variety of dark chocolate from different craft chocolate makers. The integral tasting is limited to 10 people, but more events will be held in the future.

“We are really hoping to make this a monthly kind of event, with different chocolate pairings every other month,” Jorgensen said in an email to the Record.
