A master confectioner narrates the history of chocolate at the outset of the 90-minute workshop, tracing its evolution from an obscure tropical bean to a ubiquitous pantry staple. As the storyteller drums up intrigue, four platters of sample chocolates circulate from student to student, causing mouths to water with happy tears. When the history lesson concludes, the instructor helps participants handcraft various delicacies—Belgian specialty bonbons, truffles, mould chocolates, and more. Finally, the delicacies are nestled into a box, fastened with a ribbon, and sent home with their maker.
Chocolate Tales owner David's childhood crush on confections multiplied each time his father would bring home chocolates after trips throughout Europe. Years later, David's unconditional love for chocolate would resurface during his own exploration of the Old World, eventually leading him to open Chocolate Tales with his wife and fellow chocoholic. The enthusiastic chocolatiers share their knowledge of generating fine, cocoa-based creations as well as tasty tidbits of chocolate history. Their typical 90-minute workshops engineer impressive sweets such as Belgian bonbons and chocolate soufflés. Chocolate Tales provides all necessary chocolate-building materials, including kitchen utensils, high-grade Belgian chocolate, and cages for chocolate bunnies.
The chocolatiers at Chocolate Tales love a sweet bit a cocoa, but they love bringing people together even more. That's why they host chocolate parties, innovative events that combine the hands-on fun of chocolate making with the laid-back ambiance of a social gathering. The owner was inspired by his time in Europe, and brought back the continent's shared love of quality chocolates and social camaraderie, before adding his own, unique spin. There are events for all ages—kids can celebrate Halloween or Easter by making seasonal treats, and grown-ups hand-roll truffles and learn which drinks best pair with their gourmet chocolates.
