The School of Chocolate started as Boston and DC Chocolate Tours offering open to the public and private tours and truffle making workshops. Now online, we are no longer limited to local experts. School of Chocolate experts have traveled around the world touring chocolate plantations, planted cocoa trees, visited chocolate factories across Europe and the US, and trained with the top chocolatiers for a deeper understanding of the myth that is chocolate. They are often quoted in national publications and spend time helping to educate people, through tastings and hands-on classes. They will share their personal experiences and of course fun stories of the chocolate-making world.
The best part: You’ll have the best chocolate in the world, in your home office! That way you can relax, taste, and enjoy.
