传统的侍酒师是帮助食客挑选合适的葡萄酒来佐餐。而一名巧克力侍酒师则专为葡萄酒挑选合适的巧克力来满足人们的味蕾。图中这位女士名叫洛葛仙妮•勃朗宁，她是美国酒吧协会（American Bar Association）的巧克力侍酒师，在长岛和其他一些地方的酒庄服务。
勃朗宁2010年在长岛创办了异国巧克力品尝公司（Exotic Chocolate Tasting），部分是因为她希望帮助美国本土的可可农场，阻止热带可可农场对雨林的破坏。创办公司之前，她曾经从事过广告行业，还当过长岛一个小镇的镇长。现在，她同全球14家不同的巧克力公司打交道。虽然现在她还是个体户，但随着业务扩张，她也开始寻找另一个既懂葡萄酒也懂巧克力的人来和她一起工作。勃朗宁说：“这是我干过的最有意思的工作。”
Typically, a sommelier assists diners in choosing the right wine to pair with their dinner. A chocolate sommelier matches chocolates to wines and to people's tastes. Roxanne Browning (right) has served as a chocolate sommelier to the American Bar Association, at wineries on Long Island, and more.
Browning founded Exotic Chocolate Tasting on Long Island in 2010 in part because she hopes to help indigenous cacao farmers and stop rainforest erosion. She started the company after a career in advertising and a stint as mayor of a small town on Long Island. She works with 14 different chocolate companies from around the world. Right now, she's a solo act, but as the business expands, she's starting to look for another person who knows wine and chocolate to work with her. "This is the most fun I've ever had," says Browning.
