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.
