Normally, there is a limit to what people will do for free samples of food.
When there's chocolate involved, the rules change for the cacao-smitten. So here's a heads up on a chance to taste some of the better luxury chocolate available in the United States.
Premier Gourmet (3465 Delaware Ave., 716-877-3574) is hosting chocolate makers' representatives tomorrow, Sat. Oct. 24, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Tasters can browse through some of the big names in brown gold: Scharffen Berger, Dagoba, Stainer, Godiva, Vosges, and Valrhona. Then there's Santander (single-origin Colombian), Divine (from a farmers' collective in Ghana). There's even an organic fine chocolate, Green & Black's.
Premier rep Lisa Heaton said that they will all be serving chocolate samples and will be able to tell you "all you want and need to know about their chocolate." There will be plenty to go around, she said.
If you have a chocolate problem, you might want to bring a chaperone.
