Chocolate Tales’ instructors unveil the secrets of making fine chocolates and sprinkle hands-on workshops with bits of chocolate history. During workshops scheduled throughout the winter and spring, a master chocolatier escorts participants through 90-minute lessons on making impressive sweets such as Belgian bonbons, chocolate soufflés, and ganache cell-phone cases. Seasonal themes inspire students who imbue cocoa constructions with winter-themed adornments in January, Valentine’s hearts in February, Easter egg-sized morsels in March, and light spring flavours in April. Chocolate Tales provides all necessary chocolate-building materials, including kitchen utensils, high-grade Belgian chocolate, and cages for chocolate bunnies. All workshop graduates get to tote home ribboned boxes filled with their heavenly handiwork.
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.
