Service Description

Ever wonder how chocolate is actually made? Get a group together and spend a fun evening learning and exploring the art (and science) of chocolate making from the cocoa bean to chocolate bar! During this 90 MIN hands-on interactive class you'll learn about the unique process, indulge in the chocolate aromas, and taste the results! Joe Vadnay, owner of Vadnay Chocolate Co., is a natural teacher with an enthusiastic and friendly style which you are sure to enjoy! (Please note that due to the lengthy time it takes to create chocolate from the bean (minimum 24 hrs), participants will learn by steps and there will be shortcuts such as prepared chocolate as the process advances.) To create your very own chocolate from bean-to-bar, you will need a two-day session; please contact for those details. Cost for six people or less is $195 (minimum charge). Classes can be as large as approx. 20 participants; contact for details.
