I thought this was a great "date" activity so I invited my new beau. We had so much fun and it really was a great team building exercise.

Dorian was great and kept the energy level up high (sugar rush?) throughout the 2 hour class. I'm confident I could make truffles at home now, just might have to add some wine and make a party of it. Best tip - if the ingredients on anything has a...continued

Dorian was a great workshop host. He is very knowledgable and passionate about chocolate. Totally enjoyed the 2 1/2 hours we spent together. I do feel confident to make truffles at home. Oh yeah and the chocolates we actually made are delicious!

It was a fun afternoon. A lot of time was spent talking, but in the end, we did get to dip chocolates and brought home lots of goodies. I learned quite a bit about chocolate that I did not know.
