The class was a great mix of informative and hands on. I learned a lot about the chocolate industry, enjoyed the sampling and getting to make my own truffles.

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.

Great class in a charming shop. The class was very fun and we learned a lot- from the origins of chocolate to making our own, it was a really unique Valentine's treat. Thanks, Rhonda!

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. :)
