Det skal I lave

Discover the flavorful history and potential of this tropical treat.

Cacao is a food experience that will take you to the tropics and explain, in a very unique way, how we go from the fruit to the bar. Each part of the chocolate-making-process will be represented by a dish, to show you how the sub-products of the process can be used in cooking.
Upon arrival, guests will be invited to make their own cocktail, as I teach you about "spherification"; a technique developed by El Bulli restaurant. This will be the first taste of the Cacao fruit. We will then move to the table, were the tasting menu starts. As we progress, I'll be explaining to what part of the process that dish belongs to and what sub-product we are using. We will go from the pulp, to the seed, then the cocoa butter, the cocoa mass to lastly arrive to the chocolate. During the dinner, guests will be engaging with the ingredients I bring to the table, as well as with each other. This is very much the case were everybody ends ups sharing and knowing each other! For dessert, guests will be asked to plate their dessert, all together, in the same table where they have been sharing bread.
My hope is that people leave happy, satisfied and with a deeper understanding of the cacao fruit, it's origins and of the people the grew close to it. You'll also get a little good-bye gift to remember us by!

Please note that, although this is a highly engaging experience, it is not a cooking class.

A chef with 15 years of experience in professional kitchens, my wide and varied journey is reflected in the way I cook. Born in Venezuela to an Italian, Spanish, and German family, the combination of my European roots and the tropics make for a classic cuisine with Caribbean sabor! Fun, taste, and never taking life too seriously are the main ingredients in my recipe for cooking and life!

I've worked in many different sectors, from 3 Michelin star restaurants to food product development. Since 2017, I've been hosting food experiences in the UK and Europe, where each has a theme and uses food to create connections. I'm particularly interested in how gastronomy can elevate memories, feelings, and places for people.

Her skal du være

Dinner will be taking place at my place in Haggerston. I have duplex facing a park, right next to the overground station, so it is very easy access. Plants and loads of art make our home cosy and cool and I hope you feel warm and welcomed, not only by the food but also by the space. Kitchen and living room are in the same open space, so we should be quite comfortable. Tunnel, our cat will be hanging around too.
Smoking is allowed in the balcony

Paola is such a wonderfully fun hostess. We highly recommend spending an evening with this lovely lady! From the moment we arrived we felt so relaxed and welcomed. Paola has created such an interesting cacao journey and very cleverly used each aspect of the cacao fruit throughout the menu. A very knowledgeable chef, she shared fascinating culinary insights and her personal experience of the cacao harvests. The food was absolutely delicious. Beautifully presented, with incredible flavours and contrasting textures. Each course was interactive in some way - from the initial cocktail creating science fun, to the full chocolate experience dessert course! Rich brownie, ganache, chocolate crumble, cacao nib tuille, chocolate ice cream... A wonderful evening with a delightful hostess. Highly recommended!

We bought this as a Christmas present for our son and daughter in law. They had a great evening and thought the food absolutely delicious. Highly recommended.

We really enjoyed the evening. Paola was a great host and we enjoyed chatting to her and finding out more about her experiences. She had cleverly put several dishes together which cover all aspect of the cocoa plant, from fruit to the chocolate bar. The food itself was amazing too and was of the standard of a good restaurant! The location was ideal as well, in a spacious room with a large table. Overall it was a great experience and we would definitely recommend it to others!

Love it! It was not just about the tasting menu but more importantly it was about the personal touch. We were warmly welcomed by Paola and her friends (and her cat) and shared our personal stories and thoughts. Would recommend it to anyone coming to London looking for a unique experience!

The Caco experience is simply magical and amazing from all points of view. If you are a foodie, love discovering new products and approaches to food and meeting fantastic people, this is the place for you. Definitely to be recommended and repeated since the menu changes according to the season!!!

This experience absolutely blew my mind!! Paola has a deep knowledge of cacao which she shared with us through her mouth watering food and the stories from her childhood that inspired each dish and it’s presentation. She made one feel immersed in her culture and welcomed in her home. The food was absolutely delicious! The group was very diverse with people from all over the world and it felt special to connect over food as we all laughed the entire night. I can not recommend this experience enough, it’s a once in a lifetime dinner!
