Boston Chocolate School
David Goldstein could be considered a renaissance man: he's organized skiing trips and city bar crawls, founded a murder-mystery dinner theater, and led team-building exercises—one of which focused on sharing his passion for chocolate. As this particular venture garnered public demand, he began traveling across the country to meet with chocolatiers and cocoa experts. In 2009, he returned to Boston and focused his findings and theatrical flair into sweets-focused tours—what he now refers to as his passion business.
Today, his team includes chocolate-experience designer Caitlin, two chocolate tour guides, Count Chocula, three pastry-chef chocolatiers, and a wine expert who teaches wine-and-chocolate pairings. The guides lead guests on walking tours and a cupcake crawl through three of Boston's historic neighborhoods, taking them to boutique chocolate shops, bakeries, ice-cream parlors, and a cosmetics company that uses chocolate in its products. In hands-on workshops, chocolatiers teach students how to form truffles, make fillings, hand mold chocolate, and package confections.
The instructor showed us how to roll the centers of the truffles and dip them into tempered chocolate to make tasty and pretty truffles.K P., Yelp. 1/10/10

“My husband and I attended the Truffle making workshop on April 6th; we were pleasantly surprised at how great it was, the instructor Dorian was fabulous, gave us a lot of helpful information and plenty of time to make the chocolates - lots of fun, and I've been recommending it since we attended it - also, the quality of the chocolate was to-die-for - thanks for a great time and we will definitely go back to the Boston Chocolate School!
