It was great! Really enjoyed the tasting and learned so much about chocolate and the different types. Had a blast making the truffles and loved that it is an easy recipe I feel I can replicate at home. Thanks so much for the experience!

Class was so awesome! Learned so much about chocolate. Rhonda was an amazing teacher and instructor. She had so many "insider tips" on making truffles, and on the chocolate industry in general. Class was very conversational, and Rhonda answered a lot of our questions about chocolate. 100% recommend this class. Perfect for any chocolate lover.

Fantastic class - learned a ton about the chocolate making world, what makes a good chocolate, and even got to taste a bunch of different types of chocolates. Perfect place for a date or birthday present!

I absolutely loved this class--it was wonderful to learn more about what aspects of the processing or growing process produces different types of results in chocolate. I also very much appreciated the accommodation the teachers made so that I could take part in the class (I got injured and couldn't stand at the prep table; they got a smaller table and chair so that I could still attend.)

The chocolate was delicious and learning the process was fun. However, there was not enough focus on the chocolate-making versus chocolate industry. We did not get to role or form the truffles in class which was a downer.

This class was fun and educational. You get to try chocolate samples from all over the world, ranging in different %s. I thought there would have been a little more of the cooking aspect, but overall it was a good class to take.

Fun, very informative, but you do quite little in terms of actual cooking which was a little disappointing.

This course covered a good amount of education, and had new things to learn for both the novice and the not- so- novice! Plus we got to take home unfinished truffle making supplies to practice at home! Ronnie was awesome!

The class was really informative and a great intro to chocolate. It would have been nice to make at least one more thing though. 3/4 of the class was instruction and chocolate tasting and only the last bit was spent working with the chocolate. Overall we really enjoyed it!

This class was a lot of fun, very interesting, and a great gift for Mother's Day. Rhonda was very welcoming and made this a great experience. It was exciting to try the different chocolates and make our own truffles and ganache.

Honestly didn't expect too much from it. But I have to say it absolutely exceeded my expectations in every way--from the hot cocoa to warm us up from the cold, to the exquisite chocolates and Roni's widespread knowledge & teaching ability, it was great. We had some wine as we tasted different chocolates and then transitioned to making our own truffles--the toppings were wonderful additions! And the outdoor patio is beautiful and the brick wall to take photos. Highly recommend to singles or couples; it's a small intimate space. :)
