“The class was great! Fun, and informative, and the chocolate was DELICIOUS! I really like the way that Hodie encouraged us to savour the different notes and characteristics of each of the different chocolates. I probably would have never gone to a shop like this before purchasing this Groupon, but with my new appreciation for really GOOD chocolate, I will definitely be going back, and I've recommended it to all my chocolate-loving friends.”
